What it is about:

Young Children and Worship is our Durham Church ministry that presents a joyful way for children to worship God. Together with our children, this curriculum helps us to experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format with multi-sensory materials. Bible stories follow the liturgical calendar.

Weekly worship includes:

  • Singing
  • Story-telling from the bible
  • Creative responses to God’s Word – arts & crafts, blocks, dress up, dance
  • Special blessings for each child

Worship leaders are members of our church who have been trained in this special curriculum. We believe that children were created for worship, and we love sharing this with all our young ones.

What to Expect:

Following the opening worship songs and children’s prayer, your child will go with two worship leaders to our worship center. Children will return to the sanctuary at the start of communion. We invite all children who desire it to come forward for communion. If your child is not ready for communion, just let us know, and we will instead offer a blessing.

If this is your child’s first time at Young Children and Worship, please have one parent come back to see where the Worship Center classroom is. We also ask you to leave us an Info Card and write your cell phone number on the white board. If we need you to return to the Worship Center, we will text you. If you don’t use text messaging, just let us know.
