Family Worship is an opportunity for both children and adults to worship God, have fun, and grow spiritually as a family. It is an environment where parents and children can learn from one another, play games, and dive into the Bible. It's not a children’s service with adults present nor is it an adult service with children present. It is a new and exciting way to engage people of all ages and redefine what a Sunday morning worship experience can look like, with music, games, family discussion, and a message from Pastor Jill every week. If you have questions or concerns at any time, please contact me and we look forward to sharing in fun and worship with you!
Sunday, September 26 family worship
Family worship in Celebration Hall (Door 2,7) begins with high energy music from the praise band, a devotional time with Pastor Jill Moffett or Pastor Matt Hantelman, and a Bible video geared toward what the children are learning about in their small groups. We will also hear words from our Director of Family Ministry Ally Hall. After the children are released for their small group time around 10AM, a full sermon (the same preached in the other worship services), prayer time, and praise music will finish out the rest of the worship time. Please contact Pastor Jill or Ally Hall with any questions or clarifications.
This week, in our final week of the kids series on INITIATIVE, we head to Nehemiah 3–4, 6:15-16, and 8:1-17 and read that God helped Nehemiah and the people finish the wall in only 52 days! They celebrated what God had done for them, not only during those 52 days but throughout their history as His people. They heard God’s word and remembered how God had been faithful to them. They had a lot to be thankful for! Bottom Line: Look for ways to celebrate what God has done. When we realize that God is doing amazing things in our lives, we can’t help but thank Him. We pray that throughout this month, looking at Nehemiah’s story, kids will see how God helps them every day. We hope they learn to celebrate God’s continued work in their lives.
We have taken this time during the pandemic to evaluate how we do ministry and to create programming designed to welcome young families to our church and engage kids within the ministry. We have worked to renovate our kid's classrooms into a fun, welcoming, and overall more visitor-friendly experience for kids and families. We designed our spaces to be a place where kids are excited to spend their Sunday mornings, parents feel confident that their kids are safe and engaged in their small group, and volunteers have what they need to be successful right in their classrooms each and every Sunday.
