Children’s Presence in Worship: Full Participation or Brief Appearance?
April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Diocese of Olympia is pleased to offer a little shelter-at-home continuing education with faith formation educator, Sharon Ely Pearson.
Join your colleagues in Western Washington for a lecture and follow-up conversation on “Children’s Presence in Worship: Full Participation or Brief Appearance?” on Wednesday, April 22 at 1:00pm.
Sharon says: “In these times of declining church membership, mainline congregations put considerable weight on the presence of children as an indicator of congregational vitality. But how do we truly welcome children in the life of our churches, especially in worship? If children are full members of the Body of Christ through their baptism, shouldn’t they be full participants in Word and Sacrament? Let’s explore how worship can truly be a multi-generational experience for the whole church.”
