The worship at Faith Presbyterian Church has been summarized in a series of articles that first appeared
in our newsletter.
For the details concerning our practice of the Lord's Supper, please see this evening sermon series.
To see our order of worship, recent bulletins are available.
Help Your Child Worship
Sit together as a family. If you have a large family, invite single adults to sit
with you. This will emphasize that all believers are in the Lord’s family. It will
also help singles fulfill their vows to help in the nurture of the covenant children
by helping one of your children with the hymns, the Scripture reading, the confession
of sin, etc.
Impress on your child the fact that he should get himself quiet, pray to God, and
get ready to worship God during the three minutes of silence preceding the beginning
of the morning worship service. He needs to be reminded that we are in the presence
of the Lord, and are to quiet our hearts before Him at the beginning.
Encourage your child to participate with the congregation in standing, praying,
reading, singing, etc.
Encourage your child to say “Amen” after each of the congregational prayers; tell
him frequently why we do this.
Note in the bulletin when communion or a baptism are coming up the following week,
and explain to your child what these mean prior to the service.
See to it that your child has a church worship paper and something to write with.
Encourage hi to use this and not to write on the offering envelopes. If he is old
enough, encourage him to use the church worship paper to focus on the sermon. Discourage
the drawing of pictures that have nothing to do with the things of God.
Have your child share with you after the service the things he has written or drawn
on the church worship paper. Praise his attempts to listen to the sermon and to
participate in other parts of the worship service.
