Leading Your Children in Corporate Worship (Short Version)

Why We Value Children in Corporate Worship 

What Does the Bible Say About Children in Corporate Worship?

Scripture does not include a specific command for children to be included in corporate worship services. However, it does give numerous examples of children participating in corporate worship.

Leading Your Children in Family Worship (Short Version)

What Is Family Worship?

Family worship is simply worshiping God together as a family in your home.  Worship is essentially responding with awe, wonder, and affection over who God is and what he has done.  Historically, there are three primary ingredients to family worship: read, sing, and pray.

Leading Your Children in Corporate Worship (Long Version)


Worshiping together as a family in corporate worship services is a wonderful goal. For parents, however, there is a bigger goal than having our children with us in worship services: training our children to be worshipers of God. Training our children to participate in corporate worship is merely a part of that process. This is not an easy process, and it will require much prayer, humility, grace, patience, intentionality, and persistence on our part.

Leading Your Children in Family Worship (Long Version)


This tool from our Parenting Tool Box is intended to give you some practical help in proactively leading your children in family worship. If you did not experience family worship while growing up, don’t worry. We want to encourage you to consider beginning a new pattern of family life for your family and seek to leave a legacy for generations to come.

Parenting Toolbox

As a church, we want to do everything we can to help parents disciple their children. We believe that God designed parents to be the primary disciple-makers of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4–9; Ephesians 6:4) and the church to partner with parents in this process. The Parenting Toolbox is one attempt to help equip parents for this critical task. Each tool in this toolbox includes both practical ideas and resources to help you get started.

From Bud Burk, Pastor for Children & Family Discipleship, Downtown Campus

God was pleased to bring 23 fathers and their daughters in grades 4–6 to Trout Lake Camp on Oct 3–4. The theme for the weekend was “Tales of the King” as we looked upon the glory of the Son in the Word. I had the privilege of sitting in the “front row,” watching fathers laugh, play, and pray with their girls. I saw men loving their daughters in very special ways.
