Celebrating Children at Faith Renewal Church
To the parents, may we suggest:
Relax! God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house. All are welcome!
Sit toward the front, where it is easier for your child to see and hear what’s going on. They tire of seeing the backs of others’ heads.
Quietly explain the parts of worship and the actions of the worship leaders.
Sing the hymns. Children learn behavior by copying you.
If you have to leave worship with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.”
Remember that how we welcome children in church directly affects how they respond to the church, God, and one another. Let them know that they are at home in this house of worship.
To the members of our church:
The presence of children is a gift to the church, and they are a reminder that our congregation is growing.
Please welcome our children and give a smile of encouragement to their parents.
