This guide examines the meaning of worship, liturgy, and symbols of worship, and it explains the significance of the Bible, confession of sins, hymn singing, and the creeds. Practices and terms are explained.

This guide takes young people through the meaning of worship, liturgy, and symbols of worship (altar, cross, baptismal font, pulpit, etc.). It explains the significance of the Bible, confession of sins, the sermon, hymn singing, the creeds, and more. The colorful, contemporary illustrations will hold the interest and attention of young people.

In the development and field-testing of this resource, many adults found the information helpful because it explained practices and terms which they did not understand, yet were uncomfortable asking about.

This book will be useful to:

Pastors -- for pre-communion instruction, children's sermons and youth classes
Sunday School teachers -- for preparing children to understand and take part in worship
Parents -- for helping their children learn more about the Bible and worship
