Children in the Pews

Adults sometimes wonder why people bring little children to church. Actually, bringing children into the sanctuary is something like letting them eat at the dinner table. Even though their manners are far from elegant, it is done in the hope that, given time, they’ll begin to feel part of the family.

Children giggle, they wiggle, and they swing their legs simply because they are children. But they also sing, pray, and worship with us. So, this page is written to suggest that we as adults should accept – even welcome, value, and smile at the children’s restlessness during worship, trusting that they are also learning.

That it’s important to come to this place each Sunday/Wednesday That they belong to this special company of people, That this is a safe place to be and that they are valued and loved, That the sights and sounds of the sanctuary are good, though not always understandable, That something is expected of them in this place and that they may respond in song, prayer and offering.

Bringing a child to church can be challenging. But then again, so are many other facets of parenting, and the rewards are well worth the effort. We must remember that children belong to the church too, and many of us learned to love the church by being there as children. Children belong to God and, while they may not participate in worship in the same ways adults do, they are growing in understanding and learning to take their places in the church family.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs." Matthew 19:14
