A children’s chapel service takes place each Sunday during the 10:30 AM worship service. The purpose of chapel is to encourage bonds of fellowship within the church, to hear and share stories of faith and to support the practice of worshipping while gathered in the chapel room as part of the family of God.
After the reading of the second lesson, children through the 5th grade are invited to follow the cross to Children’s Chapel. The procession is led by a storyteller and two assistants to the children’s chapel room. Children in the nursery are also brought to the chapel room with a nursery attendant.
The children participate in an order of worship which includes lighting candles, singing, birthday recognitions and the reading of prayers of the children.
The storyteller tells a Bible story using visual aids, props and music. A bible (memory) verse is taught to help the children understand God’s word and apply it to their lives. For review, the children retell the story interactively using dramatic play, recall games and illustrations.
The children return to the service during the peace and complete the worship service with their family.
