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
Growing in Worship involves children in the worship service so they learn, follow, and participate in the order of worship. Colorful and interactive, this four–page weekly worship folder uses realistic artwork and coordinates with the lectionary to highlight the weekly theme and message of the day. Features of the worship folder include:
PRAY! Child–friendly Collect Rebus format highlights the prayer of the day. Realistic artwork conveys that the Bible stories and lessons are real and connects children to the message of the day.
SEE! Eye–opening activity gets children looking at the chancel, symbols, banners, paraments, furnishings, and rubrics of the church service, offers explanation of historical relevance, and delivers understanding on what they see.
DO! Engaging activity reinforces the message of the Gospel reading.
HEAR! A checklist of Gospel highlights prompts children to follow the reading. Less familiar words are explained – increasing Bible vocabulary and forming bridges to understanding.
WORDS TO KNOW! Simple definitions provide context for understanding and aid comprehension of unfamiliar 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 activity for families encourages faith discussion. Six days of the week, timely tasks are suggested that parents can use as their child’s faith teachers.
CHURCH CALENDAR Dated with the festival and seasonal color connects young worshipers with the church year lectionary.
Ideal for children ages 5–10, parents and others will be drawn to its practical content and appealing design.
