Sunday Children’s Services 9 and 10:45am

Hey there, C4KIDS!  We welcome you to join us Sunday mornings for our children’s services at 9 and 10:45am.
Children ages Pre-K to 6th grade meet in the Purple Room 123 for worship, learning, encouragement and FUN,
all straight from God’s Word!  If ever you can’t make it, you can still find what you missed right here on this page,
updated for our children’s services weekly.

This week’s lesson


Today, we’re going to talk about what could happen if we don’t worship.  I’ll give you a hint: it has to do with rocks.
First, let’s find our lesson in the Bible,
in the book of Luke 19:37-40.
READ with us here

Our God is an amazing, all-powerful, all-knowing, loving, good and merciful God!  He deserves our worship! 

He loves to hear His creation singing praise to Him, because it means our hearts are turned to Him with the right attitude of thankfulness.

We can worship God out loud, praising His name in many different ways.


Did you know?  When you praise God out loud it helps others to know about Him, too! 

Especially these days, when people around you may be filled with worry and fear, you can help them know how AWESOME your God is by telling about Him.

Watch this next video for something you can do at home to encourage others by letting them see and hear your praise.  You can let your rocks cry out!

You can find some pictures to give you some inspiration here!

You can find some Scripture suggestions for your rocks below.  Hover over the three boxes to find some links to verses.

Psalm 96 is full of reasons and ways to praise God!

1 Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

3 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

4 For great is the Lord and most worthy of  praise; he is to be feared above all gods.

5 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.

6 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

7 Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

8 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.

9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.

10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it.

12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.

13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.


Our GREAT God deserves GREAT praise!

What about other things in God’s creation?  Do you think animals sing praise? How about trees of the forest, like Psalm 96 says? Can the stars in the heavens praise God?

Check out some of the videos posted on the C4KIDS facebook page, of God’s creation singing!

Here’s a playlist for you to praise God all week!

I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.    Psalm 34:1
