Children aged 4–7 leave the sanctuary following the Prayer for Understanding and continue worshiping for 50–55 minutes in the Children and Worship room found on the second level.
The C & W room is specifically designed to allow them to joyfully experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format and multi-sensory materials. In this space they gather as God’s children, to sing together, to hear God’s word and to wonder about and respond to the story they hear in a variety of ways: re-telling a story, using art materials, or building with materials such as play-doh.
During this time we also pray and share a feast time together. Each child is given a special blessing as they leave to be a disciple in their homes, schools and activities. You can find more information at the official Children & Worship website.
Children and Worship does not happen in the summer. Instead, there is a supervised play time.
