Finding Treasures in Worship
For children (and maybe adults), it isn’t always easy to keep up with everything that happens in worship services. Children are seeing and experiencing new things each week in worship. Finding Treasures in Worship is designed to help children not only focus on what’s happening, but help them learn to engage in worship. Each week the children receive a sheet with information about the worship service. There are questions to answer, words to find, scripture and music to focus on, and space to draw and write about things they see and hear in worship. Encourage your children to use these in worship. Find time to talk together as a family each week about what you all experienced in worship.
For children of all ages, there are worship bags located in baskets outside each entrance to the sanctuary, which can be used during worship. In them, you will find note pads, crayons/colored pencils, worship information sheets for preschoolers, and other materials kids can use during worship. Encourage children to use these as part of learning about worship, rather than a distraction from worship. Children learn by doing, so being a part of worship each week is how they learn what it means to worship God and be in community with others.
CenterPeace for Children
Wednesdays, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
CenterPeace for children invites first through sixth graders to participate in singing, storytelling, and sharing God’s love with others in word and deed. Children gather in Crocker Auditorium for choir and move to MB221 for faith development activities.
During our final two months of CenterPeace for this school year we will reflect on our key words from this year. How can we know God and each other better? How can we grow closer to God through spiritual practices and serving others? How can we show God’s love and light to the world?
CenterPeace will end on May 25 with a churchwide celebration. Our children will share things they’ve learned and done this year. Make plans to join us at 6:00 pm in Crocker Auditorium.
