Thoughts on Children’s Church

[1]

I have been asked recently why we don’t use “children’s church” but instead keep our children in the worship assembly throughout the entire worship service.

Before I answer this question, I want to state that I don’t care one way or another what you do with your kids.

And I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way. I mean that I assume you are making decisions for your children that you feel will best benefit them and I don’t feel defensive or judged in any way if your decision is different from mine. I am also making decisions for my children that I feel will best benefit them and I hope that you don’t feel defensive or judged if I make different choices than yours.

Now that I have that out of the way, here is our thinking in keeping all of our children in the worship assembly:

Here is how we teach our kids to be still and quiet during worship [3].

Do your children attend children’s church? Why or why not?
