Every Sunday, children Pre-K through 2nd grade are invited to join Rev. Hope Benko, Family Minister Lizzie, and Brenda Simms in Children’s Chapel during the Liturgy of the Word. While the grown-ups and older children hear the sermon, our kids hear the Scripture lesson of the day in a child-friendly format, accompanied by a storybook that thematically connects with the Scripture lesson. We all sing together, learning the Sanctus sung in each service and other children’s classics like “Jesus Loves Me.” We conclude with a prayer, using the “Five Finger Prayer” by Pope Francis and a children’s creed, before rejoining the rest of the congregation during the Passing of the Peace.
Children’s Choir begins October 7th at 3pm, and will run every Sunday from 3-4pm. Children 1st through 5th grade are warmly invited to come learn musical skills and prepare pieces to be shared in corporate worship at the 9am service and on Christmas Eve. The Children’s Choir is under the capable leadership of Dr. Brenda Simms.
