Publisher's Description

How can we help kids to love church?


Overview


Children need to feel that they are an important part of the church community, says Michelle Leise in her article for CHRISTIAN PARENTING TODAY magazine. The thoughts, feelings, and attitudes that we develop as children can carry over into our adult lives. This is of critical importance when we consider how kids view church. We want to be purposeful about making church a positive experience for kids so that they desire to have a personal relationship with Christ and intimate fellowship with God s people.


Why do children need to observe adults worshiping God? How does our attitude toward children in the church affect their spiritual formation? How can we make church an exciting, kid-friendly environment? Why is it important for kids to serve in the church? These are questions we will be discussing in this study.
