The Children and Worship Program is available from a cooperative ministry of the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRC), Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC), and Reformed Church in America (RCA).
The Children and Worship Program is for churches that offer a separate worship time for children. This reverent approach to worship helps young children experience, not just learn about, God. The program is based on the book Young Children and Worship by Sonja Stewart and Jerome Berryman.
Training is essential to a successful children's worship program. Faith Alive Christian Resources, the Office of Faith Development of the Reformed Church in America, and the Presbyterian Church in Canada have set up several training centers in North America to help members of your congregation to...
- lead and administer the adventure of worship with children three to seven years old.
- prepare a special worship environment in which children and adults sense the awesome wonder of God.
- tell biblical stories and parables, using wooden figures and other materials.
