Holly Inglis was kind enough to send her handouts from her recent workshop at the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators’ Annual Event 2015. The workshop was titled “Don’t be afraid of the children’s sermon!” The description follows: The children’s sermon is one of the most important elements of worship, yet is often a source of stress and anxiety for those preparing and those listening. These resources offer practical tips for managing and leading a time with children during worship, as well as, recommended resources for messages and tools for training volunteers to lead messages.
I hope you enjoy these valuable files. Holly is wondering about the role/purpose of a children’s sermon in a worship service. What do you think?
