“God of All People,

     Children are part of God’s people and an integral part of our church family at Sahali Fellowship. Children participate in the life of the church, whether in service, worship, prayer, or listening to God’s Word. Likewise, our community builds relationships between children and adults of all ages. As children grow, we disciple them not only in the tenets of the Christian faith, but also in their ability to discern God’s ways and live a Godly life of forgiveness, grace, and gratitude.
When you worship with us on a Sunday morning…
…children and youth worship God with the congregation. We welcome the wonderful sounds children make as we teach them how to worship!
…children and youth share prayer requests, thanksgivings or testimonies during our time of shared prayer, just like the adults.
…younger children who are able to be independent of their parents are welcome to join Sunday School during the sermon. Just as those in the worship space will hear God’s Word, so too will the younger children hear God’s Word.
…for older children who can read and youth, we encourage them to listen to God’s Word with the adults. We encourage adults and youth to discuss God’s Word together.
…children return from Sunday School before the end of the worship service so that as a whole community, we receive God’s blessing as we begin a new week.
