Exploring the wonder of God's creation.
John Westerhoff, a leading Christian Educator, believes that children are necessary in worship. Westerhoff believes that faith is “caught” not “taught” and what better way for children to know what faith is all about than to be a full part of a worshiping community.
When a child is baptized in our midst and made a member of the church of Christ, the adults of the congregation promise to be active in nurturing that child’s faith. We want to work together to nurture our children in their faith and to be nurtured by them in return. Children give us the gift of trust and a fresh point of view; adults can share the gift of acceptance, experience, and wisdom of the church through the ages.
"…Jesus called for them and said,
‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them;
for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.’”
