Parents of young children:
Relax! God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel you have to suppress those wiggles in God’s house. Here’s a few suggestions to enhance your child’s (and your) experience in worship:
- Consider sitting towards the front where its easier for your little ones to engage.
- Quietly explain the parts of the service and the actions of the pastors, musicians and other worship leaders.
- Sing the Hymns, pray and voice the responses. Children learn behavior by mimicking you.
- If you have to leave the sanctuary with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back! As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.”
