Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)
God made children, and he loves them! Rest assured that he not only understands, but planned for them to have wiggles and giggles. Trust that if you persevere in your efforts to bring your children to God’s house he will bless you and them.
There are many benefits for a family that worships together. We also know from experience that it can be a challenging time for parents as they seek to “train up a child in the way he should go.” Below are some tips that we hope will be helpful to you as you lovingly guide your child to the Lord in worship.
“The promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” (Acts 2:39)
[Jesus said:] “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” (Mark 9:37)
We are delighted to have children worship with us as they grow in Christ. We have many young families with children in our midst, and you may occasionally hear the “sounds of a growing church” throughout our buildings. We welcome you and your children to join us!
