Including Children in Worship


Miles Morrison wrote a good article at For The Church about the benefits of keeping your children with you during church. This is simply how we do things at the church I co-pastor. . . and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

. . .keeping your children in service with you, especially if they’re not used to it, can certainly be a challenge. Remember that a child’s obedience to his parents is an act of worship and is pleasing to God (Ephesians 6:1-3, Colossians 3:20). But try not to focus on things like threatening them with what will happen if they get out of line or telling them to be quiet because others are looking, instead see this as an opportunity to teach them about who God is and why He is more than worthy of our worship.

    That sounds so refreshing! There was a time in my life when I was enthralled with celebrity pastors.Now I just want some body who will do just this. Give me oodles and oodles of the word and sacrament. That’s all I want from a pastor. Faithful service. But I go to a large church with a pastor who may not be a celebrity on the national stage but is set up as one in our church. Can someone please just give me the word?
