To Parents of Young Children

Relax!  God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel you have to suppress those wiggles in God’s house.  Consider sitting toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what’s going on.  Quietly explain the parts of the service and actions of the pastor, musicians, and other leaders.  Sing the hymns, pray, and voice the responses.  Children learn by mimicking your participation.  Make use of the Sermon Notes handout to keep your kids engaged in the worship service.  If you have to leave the service with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back.  As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.”

To All Members and Visitors

Children are God’s gift to our church.  They remind us that He is growing His body while raising up the next generation of His people.  Remember, the way we welcome children here directly affects the way they respond to the Church, to God, and to one another.  Let them know they are valued members of our church family.  Please welcome our children and give a smile of encouragement to their parents.
