Children's Ministries

Holy Comforter seeks to give children a meaningful worship experience by incorporating them into the worship service whenever suitable, and offering age-appropriate worship alternatives.

  • They learn they belong to Christ and are welcome in His Church.
  • They learn to know the Lord’s Prayer and other parts of the liturgy from memory.
  • They build a fund of memorable, shared experiences of Christian community against which they may draw when they are older.
  • They are enriched by the beauty of music and art as expressions of praise and as human responses to God.
  • They witness the drama of Baptism and Eucharist as signs of God’s kindness and favor.
  • They hear stories from the Bible read and interpreted, and begin to see Christian worship as one place where God may speak to them.
  • They discover that they are valued as persons by God and by the people of God at Church.
