When I was single, I was in a ctrsiamahic church that was family integrated. The children were always in the services, worship and prayer times with us and it was sweet to see the little ones learning to participate. It would be distracting at first, but we all learned to adjust, accept and love having them with us and the Lord often used them to teach us things. It would be beautiful to see little toddlers and preschoolers on their faces in worship and prayer (whether they were mimicking or not) and being free to dance during worship times. We are no longer in that church, we are married and have children now and do miss that opportunity for our own children, but we are seeking to build that in our home. The church we are in is very much into children’s ministry and has a good one. I appreciate that at least the older kids (6 and up) remain in the sanctuary with the adults during worship and then are released to their own service for teaching. Still, some parents choose to keep their children with them the entire time and I am also glad for that freedom. I just started leading the preschool church class out of the leading and burden that they were not having a consistent teacher to use that time to help them grow. Through His leading, I pray I can be an instrument of helping these little ones come to know Jesus in a deep way. I love what I’ve heard other children’s ministers say, “There is no Junior Holy Spirit” these little ones get the same One we do.
