YOUNG FAMILIES

TO PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN MAY WE SUGGEST. . .

  • Relax! God put the "wiggle" in children
  • We recommend sitting near the front where it's easier for children to see what's happening
  • Use a gentle touch; an arm around your child's shoulder or your hand in his or hers gives reassurance and appropriate attention
  • Quietly explain parts of the service
  • Allow children to participate in the Time for Young Disciples during the service
  • Help your child find his/her way through the bulletin and hymnbook
  • Encourage them to follow and use the bulletin, available from ushers
  • Children learn by watching you worship
  • There are children's activity bags available near the front entry. The ushers will be glad to help you!
  • Always remember that the way we welcome children in the church directly impacts the way they respond to church, God, and Christ. Let them know that they are at home in this time of praise and thanksgiving!

    The weekly worship service is an effective opportunity for children to understand that they belong to a larger family that will nurture, support and love them unconditionally. We are so fortunate at Evergreen to have this strong family of believers that welcomes children and encourages their participation to serve Christ.

    A nursery room is located in the back of the sanctuary for children and families that require additional accommodations.
