CHILDREN AND WORSHIP
"Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs".
CHILDCARE—Children birth up to two years receive loving, developmentally appropriate care in the nursery or toddlers room, beginning at 9:45 AM through worship.
The children may pick up an age-appropriate Covenant Kids Worship Bag for use during the worship service and return it to the narthex after church.
CHILDREN'S SERMON—All children through fifth grade are invited to come forward for a special sermon by Pastor Price.
FOLLOWING THE CHILDREN'S SERMON:
Kindergartners through Second Grade
Parents may choose to allow their children to exit sanctuary with adult leaders for songs, prayers, stories, and/or crafts. They will return to worship during the hymn following the sermon.
Third through Fifth grade: Children's Choir
When invited, parents may choose to allow their child to exit the sanctuary with a musician who will work with them to learn music to be presented in worship.
Very young children are invited to be in worship to see the Sacrament of Baptism. The adult leaders will bring the children from the nursery into the sanctuary and sit as a group to observe this rite. Parents, please tell the nursery caregivers if you want you child to remain in the nursery instead.
All baptized children are invited to share in the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper.
