We are all children of God! Trinity encourages children to attend and
participate in worship with their families.
They will learn how to worship only if they
are present. God put the
wiggle in them, so don’t feel you have to
suppress it in God’s house.
Trinity’s KidSpace Worship area on the left side of the sanctuary
is a designated place where young children can experience worship through age-appropriate
worship materials and activities. This space was introduced during our
sanctuary renovation in response to a number of shifts and changes in our church.
Those shifts include:
- the desire of parents to have their young children with them,
- the understanding that children will only learn to worship by
regularly being in worship,
- the difficulty of sustaining grade-level classroom programs due to volunteer resources and family attendance habits,
- the desire to gather together as a multi-generational church,
learning and growing together as the body of Christ.
Children learn by
observing, acquire language by listening and understand by participating. They
love rituals and repetition. Think about what adults do in worship on Sunday
morning – aren’t we doing the same thing!? It is natural for children to be included in the faith-forming act of worship if we long for them to be a part of
the community of faith as they grow and mature.
