Children and Worship

Children and Worship
Worship is the heart of our life as a community of faith. Families that worship together are teaching their children what it means to be a people of faith.White Memorial embraces children as part of the worshipping community. When you are in worship with your child, be sure to ask the ushers for a Children in Worship Kit and a children's bulletin. We also have a children’s book cart  in the Jane Bell Gathering Space. The Caldwell Book Cart has children’s Bibles and other books to use during worship. 

Nurseries for the very young are provided at all three services. See Childcare/Nursery for more information.  

During the 9:30 worship hour, children are encouraged to participate in Church School classes

Welcoming Children to the Lord's Supper Workshop 
Children in third, fourth, and fifth grades and their parents participate in our Welcoming Children to the Lord's Supper Workshop on  two Sundays during the year. The next workshop will be in the fall of 2014.
