Thoughts on Worship
As a community of believers when we Church together [Ekklesia] each has a psalm, a hymn, a song from the Spirit. We intentionally make room for every member of the body of Christ to participate in freedom of expression through song, music, dance, and other artistic communication. Some people flow with the Spirit using a pen some with a paint brush! All in all, our goal is to commune with God and each other and in that place to see that everyone is being built up into the fullness of the stature of Christ.
Occasionally our times of communion may get a bit lengthy, feel free to bring water/juice and a snack if you are someone who need these things. There's no need to neglect the physical body.
Also, it is our belief that a better way for children to learn to walk in the things of the Kingdom is by actively participating in our times of communion. Therefore, children are encouraged to remain in the same place as the rest of the gathering and are free to pray, sing, dance, draw, etc just as everyone else.
From time to time we do have specific ministry for children. It is primarily through the parents that children are educated and mature in their relationship with God. We as fellow believers are only helpers to that end.
ALL THAT BEING SAID!!! We are not afraid of people being themselves and that includes children! You must be like a little child to come into the Kingdom, therefore childlike faith, expression, and innocence are most welcome!
So wear something comfortable, pack a snack if necessary, and come along for the ride!
