But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and God's righteousness to children's children. (Psalms 103:17)

children_in_churchThe church is always just one generation away from extinction. The Bible’s promises are for our children’s children. Therefore we include children in our worship and accept them as they are. There are rocking chairs in the sanctuary. Children are offered jobs appropriate to their skills. We try to include a variety of ways to experience God and always have a special time for children within the worship. They learn from the same scriptures as the adults.

Most Sundays they go to a class to hear the lesson in a developmentally appropriate format. However, on Fifth Sundays, we all stay together and engage the Word in family worship - all the generations together.
