While our worship services are for all ages (see the explanation of our worship services here), we also recognize that children need age-appropriate instruction in ways that a sermon can’t always provide. So during the sermon portion of the service, children are invited (though not required!) to an Instructional Time where our Children’s Minister, Brooke Welborn, teaches a lesson from the Telling God’s Story curriculum, a wonderful series of lessons that focuses on Jesus & the Gospels. Each lesson, featuring child-friendly explanations of a Bible passage, is accompanied by a coloring page and/or a game.
After their lesson (and a snack, and perhaps a bit of get-out-the-wiggles playing outside) they rejoin the rest of the congregation for the remainder of the service.
At Peace Hill, kids also participate actively in traditions like the lighting of the Advent candles, decorating the church building for Christmas, reading Bible passages aloud for worship services, wrapping presents for our Angel Tree donations, delivering meals for those in need, ringing the church bell to begin our weekly service, and more.
