Children in Worship
Children Have a Special Place at Sea Island
Just as Christ commanded his disciples to let the children come, we invite children to participate in worship at Sea Island. All children are welcomed and encouraged to worship with their family. Nursery care is available and our Cry Room is easily accessible any time during worship. Our 10:30 Worship Service includes a Children’s Message, followed by Children’s Church. Our Angel and Covenent choirs frequently share music at the 10:30 service and our youth often offer the Sharing the Peace.
Our nursery is for children from 0 – 4 years and is available for both Worship Services and also during Faith Formation classes. Our nursery is staffed with dedicated caregivers who are trained in providing nurturing care and support to young children.
Cry Room for Nursing and Care
Our Cry Room offers a place to nurse infants, soothe upset children, and also provide a space to move and play during worship. It is easily accessible from the Sanctuary, and has a bathroom, rocking chairs, sofa, and playthings for children. Parents and caregivers can participate in worship by viewing the service through windows into the Sanctuary, and listening through speakers.
Children’s Message and Children’s Church
During our 10:30 Worship Service, children are invited to the front of the Sanctuary to hear a special message prepared just for them. Our storyteller typically has a surprise prop and shares a Jesus story from the gospel reading used in the service. At the end of the message, the entire congregation blesses the children by singing “Jesus Loves Me”. After the children’s message, children from kindergarten – 2nd grade are welcome attend Children’s Church. There they will experience an age-appropriate lesson during the remainder of the worship service.
Children’s Choirs and Special Services
Our Angel and Covenant Choirs frequently share music during the 10:30 Worship Service. Children also share in the production of the Church Family Christmas program, as well as a Spring Musical.
