Children in Worship
What does your church "do with children" during worship. I currently serve in a setting where Sunday School meets at the same time as the worship services. A few of our families stay for a few hours so kids may attend both SS and worship. The vast majority are there for an hour. The Parents worship while kids go to SS. This changes at Jr. High when SS begins meeting in between the services--an apparent indication that middle school kids are ready for worship. However, even most of our Jr. and Sr. high kids end up serving as an aid in the sunday school and end up neither attending worship, nor (for some of them) attending a sunday school hour. When should kids begin worshiping? (I'll share my thoughts on a later post).
