CHILDREN DURING WORSHIP

 

 
CHILDREN'S MESSAGES
These are shared with the children during the Sunday morning, non-communion worship services.  We encourage all children to participate.  Through these talks the children have an active part in the worship service.

OUR FATHER CHILDREN’S LEARNING CENTER
Our Father Children’s Learning Center is an exciting ministry to pre-school children (ages 2 ½-5 years) and their parents.  Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. during the school year, the building bustles with Bible stories, songs, crafts, finger plays, prayers and kids in motion, all within a Christian context.  Our Father Children’s Learning Center is self-supporting and contributes to Our Father financially as well as physically, through the purchase of playground equipment and other needed items.  Call (303) 779-4910 and talk to our preschool director if interested.
 
ACOLYTES
Acolytes are youth in grades five and above who have the opportunity to serve their Lord and the church by leading processions, lighting and extinguishing candles, assisting at communion, and by assisting the pastor as requested during the worship service.  The acolytes at present serve at approximately one worship service per month.  There is a formal training for acolytes, and acolytes are expected to participate in yearly refresher classes.  A schedule is sent to each volunteer.
