Children’s Worship Center

Young children and worship describes an exciting way children experience God while learning about God.  Young children and worship use a sensorimotor style of story telling as a primary means for encountering God.  So God is experienced not just learned about.  It gives appropriate freedom so young children can respond to stories of God through continually working with the story figures and art materials.  The young children and worship experience is primarily visual, oral and kinesthetic.  The children experience wonder, mystery and the presence of God.  In the Worship Center we focus on the foundational and essential components of worship.  Also on the biblical stories that give content to the images, symbols and actions of worship.  We follow the church year.  It tells time by celebrating the events of Jesus’ birth, life, death, resurrection, ascension and the gift of the Holy Spirit.  We encourage families with young children to come and visit.  We are Excited to share the stories!

Our children’s worship center is for ages 4-8 yrs of age.  And is held during the school year.

    The Worship Center is a very special place for children to encounter God. It is a special place to talk to God, listen to God, be with God and hear the stories of God.
    Today our story from God is the parable of the Good Shepherd.  Parables are like presents. They  have already been given to us. We can’t buy them or take them, or steal them. They are already ours.  Parables also have lids. When you lift the lid of a parable there is something special inside.
    Once there was someone who said such amazing things and did such wonderful things that people began to follow him. But they did not know who he was. So one day they simple had to ask him, and he said: “ I am the Good Shepherd. I know each one of my sheep by name and they know the sound of my voice. So when I call my sheep from the sheepfold . They follow me. I walk in front of the sheep to show them the way.
    I wonder if the sheep have names?…….
    I wonder if the sheep are happy in this place?…
    I wonder what is the most important part of the story?………
    I wonder what is your favorite part of the story?……

    Today in our children’s Worship room, we will discover how the church tells time.
    Sometimes it is very hard to tell what time it is. There are all kinds of time. Some say time is a line. It has a beginning ….a middle…..and an end. Our church year puzzle shaped like a circle , will give us some visuals for how the church tells time. The church liturgical year uses four colors for seasons throughout the year. Green, white purple and red.
    I wonder how you tell time? I wonder how God tells time?…….. I wonder if we have a beginning  middle and end? I wonder if God has a beginning middle and end?…….

    Today in our Worship Center room, we will encourage the children to find the quietness inside them to listen to one of God’s stories.  One of the ways to get quiet inside is to sing. We will sign and sing Be Still and Know. Another way is to get our bodies quiet by closing our eyes and listening to the quietness.
    Once there was someone who said such amazing things and did such wonderful things that people began to follow him. But they didn’t know who he was. So one day they simply asked him. And he said, “ I am the light.”  We will light the Christ candle and each child will receive a light from the Christ candle.
    People who love the Light can become one with the Light.
    Many have come to the Light to receive their light. But the Light is not smaller. It is still the same……. I wonder how so much light could be given away and the Light still be the same?
