Children First- a resource for CM

Saturday, September 18, 2010

I recently picked up a copy of Children' First: Worshipping With the Family of God by Mark Burrows. This resource provides Children's ministers and worship leaders with ideas for worship services designed for elementary-aged children and their families. This book is filled with ideas for prayers, skits and other creative elements in hopes that the whole family can be involved and engaged together in worship. I believe it was written with the idea that a church can pick this up and do a worship service for the whole family a few times a year, or even once a month. What an interesting idea! I love the thought of engaging all generations and all worshipping together. And, although the idea here is to pull the families out of normal worship to do this together- what if it was tweaked a little further and it was just the worship service for ALL to attend? ...Youth, Elderly, Adults of all ages, and Children- all together and all worshipping.
Wanted to share this as it is such an awesome thought to me. Mark might just be onto something here.
