Our job is to help parents make disciples.
The primary responsibility for teaching kids to love Jesus belongs to their parents. It’s daunting and a little overwhelming, we know. Add to that a world-wide pandemic, and many families are scrambling to keep some sort of structure for their children, especially in regard to their spiritual growth. We want to help you walk through this season and encourage, support and equip you to keep Jesus at the center of your home, routine and schedule.
Beginning Monday, June 1, 2020, we will upload resources weekly for you to use in your home. You might choose to gather a few of your Missional Community families together and have a more structured time for children or you can stretch these throughout several days as they work with your family’s current routines.
We encourage you to lean into Jesus during these times. It is our conviction that it would be a tragedy to go back to ‘life as normal’ and leave behind all that God is seeking to teach us during this time. We pray that these resources will help you be intentional about making disciples within your home.
Sunday Worship Gatherings
During this season, all children will remain with their families during worship. While we understand this might be a hurdle for some, we are doing all that we can to make Sunday gathering with kids a win for your family.
We will have Remedy Kids Worship bags for each child every week. Each bag will have some type of fidget to keep little hands busy, individual packs of crayons, coloring pages and a snack. Your child will take home the bag and its contents each week. A new bag will be handed out each week.
Additional Spaces for Parents and Little Ones
Having our children in worship is a blessing for us, and we are not worried or bothered by a little extra noise or movement. We love our kids and value their presence with us as part of our family.
Should you need a space to take your children, we have a few tables and chairs set up in the fellowship hall with a live feed of the service. Each child must be accompanied by their own parent/guardian, and we encourage you to keep your child distanced from other children.
The nursery will also be available for diaper changing, rocking babies, and nursing. It will not be staffed, but we will provide supplies to wipe down surfaces as needed.
