This past Sunday we had our annual "Kids In Worship" experience. I thought it would be good to share the concept behind this for all of you. It is an amazing opportunity for the whole family.
"Kids In Worship" is an evening of worship, led by our Elementary Kids Department. The children are in charge of the entire service in the Sanctuary. It is an evening of worship, led by the kids. The entire family comes together for a night of singing and worship.
We rehearse for months prior to this night. Rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons from 4:30 - 5:30 prior to our Evening Worship Service. The kids put together a set of familiar modern worship songs (to allow the adults to enter in) mixed with some new and original songs. Several children memorize some of their favorite passages of scripture and share them with the congregation between songs.
There is always a time where a group of our oldest children step off the stage and allow the adults to come forward for prayer. These kids pray earnestly for the needs of the adults. We have had people healed and delivered on these nights. It's amazing!
It's one of my pastor's favorite services of the year. There is something incredible about a group of kids who are passionate in worship of their God. It is inspiring to all of us! Why not try your own version of "Kids In Worship?" If you have questions, ask them using the comment section. I read each of them and will respond.
