Fun and meaningful children's liturgies that will make an impact with children (and adults, too)

(If you haven’t seen the samples previously made available, click here.)

In this collection of twelve liturgies, Judy Gattis Smith not only invites the young worshiper into a deeper faith with Jesus, but she also reminds the seasoned worshiper that praise and adoration should be pure and expectant. Each page reminds us that the idea of entering into worship shouldn't be reserved for adulthood; rather, worship is an innate desire given to us by our Creator. Sunday school teachers, parents, youth leaders, children's ministers, pastors, and children will all discover that the simple truths within these liturgies reach far beyond childhood, calling us all back to a pure worship that celebrates the gift of a Savior.

Liturgies included are:

  • A Better Way
  • Children, Let Us Pray
  • God Bless the Animals I Love (An Outdoor Service)
  • Is This the Road to Bethlehem? (A Children’s Liturgy for Advent)
  • Let’s Celebrate Laughter!
  • Remember Your ABCs (Children’s Celebration for the Beginning of School)
  • Sidewalk Celebration (An Outdoor Service)
  • What Does God Expect of Me?

About Teaching The Mystery Of God To Children:

Teaching The Mystery Of God To Children is a book of clues... clues to the awe and immensity of God that will lead children to think about, rather than "learn" about, God. Instead of teaching in the traditional sense, it provides "clues" for a shared journey toward discovering the Divine Mystery at the core of the universe.

This book is an essential resource for any parent or church school teacher who is interested in the spiritual development of their children.

Subjects discussed include:

  • The Bible
  • Art
  • Symbols
  • Music
  • Nature
  • Death
