Worship Resources

We believe ALL ages should worship together as a whole community of faith. There must, however, be intentional conversation around how best to make intergenerational worship work.

Helpful Hints
  • Do not hand out children's activities or bulletins until just before the sermon.

  • Make sure the leadership is aware of children and designs elements of worship that relate to all ages.

  • Celebrate when a child starts to become a regular worship attender and help the entire congregation see it as their responsibility to participate with each child in worship.
