Like many pastors and church leaders, I’m navigating this uncertain time of having to close the church and move worship online. I have been moved and inspired by the many different ways churches have found ways to connect – some through zoom, livestreaming, video, etc.
It’s one challenge to figure out how to translate worship IN the building to ONline, it’s another challenge to figure out ways to include children during this time. I imagine if it is stressful for adults, it can be stressful for kids.
This being our first attempt at online worship, I inserted a kids’ time. We have been in the midst of a caterpillar project during Lent and found a children’s book to read. I offer this as one way we can connect kids in worship.
For future Sundays, I have some other ideas brewing that I can share here. We are all experimenting and trying something new. Prayers for you all!
If you like to see what I did for Kids’ Time, you can fast forward the video to 13:40.
