Growing in Worship Children’s Worship Folder



“Growing in Worship provides children with a weekly guide to the words, actions, people and Bible stories they encounter in worship each Sunday. It engages their minds and their spirits with Christ as He is encountered each week in Word and Sacrament, and then sends them home with Christ–centered ideas and suggestions for the week ahead. Every congregation should get Growing in Worship. It is truly a wonderful resource for our children!”
— Revs. David Johnson and Jon Vieker LCMS Commission on Worship

Colorful, eye-catching, and interactive, this four–page weekly worship folder highlights the theme and message of the day and presents the time of the Church Year and special festivals. Growing in Worship engages children in the worship service – actually doing what others are doing, looking at the chancel, watching how things are done, listening for different words. It is done through the following sections of the worship folder:

Pray!

  • Child–friendly Collect Rebus format highlights the prayer of the day.

See!

  • Eye–opening activity focuses children on what they will see in worship. A large realistic painting on the front page brings the Gospel reading to life, helping the child to make connections to some of the difficult words or concepts in the reading.

Hear!

  • Clear instructions help children follow the Gospel reading. Some of the difficult terms are explained – becoming bridges to understanding.

Do!

    Engaging activity unpacks the message of the Gospel reading. Growing in Worship gets children looking at symbols, banners, paraments, furnishings and rubrics of the church and service, and delivers understanding on what they see.

    Words To Know!

  • Simple definitions aid comprehension of difficult words used during the worship service.

Did You Know?

  • An intriguing fact sparks thinking about each week’s Gospel message.

Family Faith Talk!

  • Brief, daily ideas for family activity and faith discussion. Six days of the week, timely tasks are suggested that parents can use as their child’s faith teachers.

This resource is ideal for children ages 5–10, but parents and others will be drawn to its content and appealing design. These 8-1/2” x 14” (unfolded) bulletins are available in the three-year Lutheran Service Book Lectionary.
