MAKE THE MOST OF WORSHIP WITH YOUR CHILD!
We love the opportunity for families to worship together and we want to help engage kids in the service, not just keep them occupied.
To do that, we are providing worship kits and children's bulletins to kids at the park. Children's bulletins are filled with activities that help kids engage and participate in the service. Worship kits provide hands-on tools for kids to use with the bulletin. We hope that these can help alleviate stress for parents who are worried about their child making it through the whole service, but more importantly, they help teach kids that “big church” is for them too.
Worship kits are more than just coloring sheets and crayons to keep kids distracted long enough for the service to be over. They are tools to help invite kids to participate in the whole service, not just the children’s moment designed for them. It is amazing to see how children can be engrossed in one activity (like coloring, doing a word search, etc) and still hear the sermon. In fact, sometimes it helps them concentrate even more! Just like adults, some kids listen better when they are fidgeting or using their hands.
For toddlers and preschoolers, we offer a preschool play pal - an animal shaped bag with special preschool appropriate items. The children's bulletin has special pages just for preschoolers to help build a foundation of faith.
