We love having children in worship! Jesus loves the little children so we do too. You have a number of options with your children.
First of all, we have activity pages and activity bags available to give children something meaningful and age appropriate so that you don’t have to entertain them during service.
We also attempt to make the worship service itself meaningful to all ages so we encourage and support having even the youngest with us in worship. We recognize that some parents become uncomfortable when their children are more active. Please be assured that we would absolutely rather have an active child in church rather than at home. There is an area at the back of the church where active children may be less of a distraction and yet allow the parents to participate in worship. If Pastor Paul had his way, all the children would sit right up front so that they can see what is going on.
If you are looking for an opportunity specifically geared toward children, we have that available on Saturdays. The largest number of children who are in worship actually attend our Saturday evening worship. So we don’t really have “Sunday School” but rather “Kids For Christ” (KFC). If your children between the ages of three and third grade are interested in attending that opportunity, your children will have fun and learn about Jesus in a very safe environment. They go to KFC after Pastor Paul’s Children’s Message and then return to their parents toward the end of the service. If you want to check out the KFC room prior to worship, we encourage you to do that and meet our instructors.
We do not have programs specifically for children on Sunday morning or Monday evening other than the Children’s Message. Children who attend those services worship alongside the adults. That should not dissuade you from coming to these services, but rather we encourage their participation. Some of the best questions and comments during the sermon often come from the children.
