We believe that children should worship with us. Your child has a heart that is, unless reached with the gospel already, hard and in desperate need of Christ. Every week we gather together so that the message of the gospel might enlighten us and strengthen us for the coming week. Why would we then remove these little sponges from under the sound of that life-giving truth? Jesus said not to suffer the children but to let them come to Him. This might mean that while we sit and listen to the Word of God, one of these little ones might yelp or cry out––but that’s okay. If you’re visiting with us and don’t really know how that works, we have a “training / cry-room” available to anyone who needs it during the service. It’s equipped with a private changing room and baby toys as well as toddler toys. If you need child care, we’re more than happy to provide that too, but we feel that children should be apart of worship as early as possible—even if that means a hiccup from time to time. You know your child far better than we do, so we leave this decision, in your capable hands.
“but Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'”
