What to expect…
Children and CenterPoint…
God gave children a special joy and energy that often makes them wiggle and giggle. They belong right here with us, as a family of God’s people. Thank you for bringing them. Please keep bringing them. You are doing great!
Sit where your family is comfortable. If it easier to keep their attention by sitting close to the stage, do it!
Feel free to quietly explain parts of the service to your children, what is happening and why. Sing and participate with us. Your kids are watching you, all the time! They will learn how to worship by watching you and those nearby.
If you have to leave the service, you are welcome to do so. Please come back. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.” There may come a time that you need a little more time and space outside of the sanctuary, your family is welcome to watch the service from the commons area or we have a family room where you can hang and still participate in the service. We would love to show you where that is.
To those of you that call CenterPoint home:
We love children and families. It is a joy to have them here! The sound of children is a beautiful sign that Jesus loves his Church and all those in it. Please encourage our families when you see them. Give them a big smile and nod. Tell them they are doing a great job. Let’s walk this journey together.
