Growing in Worship: New Worship Folder for Children
I’m really pleased to be able to show you a great new resource from Concordia Publishing House. It is titled “Growing in Worship” and is a four page weekly worship folder that can be handed to every child attending the worship service in your congregation. Deaconess Pamela Nielsen, and her team of editors, have prepared this resource for our church.
It is designed to enhance their engagement in, and understanding of, the church’s worship life. You can read more about it here and see a copy of one of the issues. This resource supports the Lutheran Service Book's three year lectionary readings. If you sign up now, your first issue will come to begin using them starting on the second Sunday in Advent, this year.
“Growing in Worship provides children with a weekly guide to the words, actions, people and Bible stories they encounter in worship each Sunday. It engages their minds and their spirits with Christ as He is encountered each week in Word and Sacrament, and then sends them home with Christ–centered ideas and suggestions for the week ahead. Every congregation should get Growing in Worship. It is truly a wonderful resource for our children!”
