Our community deeply values children and their participation in our worship gatherings. We invite children of all ages to worship alongside their parents in the main worship gathering. During the teaching portion of the service (about 25 minutes into the service), the children are dismissed to go and engage in a lesson tailored to them. This will often include a Bible passage, craft and snack.
Once a month, we participate in Communion as a church. We invite our children to return during this time, and if they desire, participate in Communion with the entire church. If the child is not old enough to participate, or isn’t ready to take this step, a simple blessing will be offered.
As a church, our highest priority is the safety of children while they are in our care. Living Vine partners with NazSafe, screens all volunteers, and holds our volunteers to the highest safety standards.
