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!
And be sure to register your attendance, give online, request prayer and find opportunities to get involved and stay connected each week at ... NoblesvilleFirst.com/NextSteps.
Sunday, December 5 family worship
Second Sunday in Advent
Speaker: Pastor Jill Moffett
Series: The Heart That Grew Three Sizes, based on the classic Grinch tale
This week: When Christmas Isn’t Christmas
Scripture: Isaiah 11:6-9
The Noblesville First Kids program, which runs from 10:00-10:45 will launch the Christmas series this week and turn to Luke 1:26-56. The Messiah had been promised for generations, but no one would have guessed that God would use a young woman to bring that promise to fulfillment—including that young woman herself. Mary was awestruck when the angel came to announce that she was about to have a child who would be the Savior of the world. She found joy, trusting that God was up to something bigger than she could have possibly imagined. Bottom Line: Celebrate because God has a plan. When God sent Jesus, it was the answer to years and years of a plan to rescue the world. The people must have wondered what God was doing, or if God was still working. We can feel the same way about our own circumstances. Yet, time and again, we realize that we can trust God no matter what. We might not understand God’s plan, but we can celebrate that God is working out a great plan for our lives.
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 the Family Ministry 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.
