Welcome banner made by the childrenShepherd of the Valley loves kids! During worship, the children are invited forward and one of the ministers introduces the scripture passage and theme of the day. Then they are escorted to Fellowship Hall for their own worship experience, with modules of music, stories, crafts, and projects. In this way, children engage with the lessons in developmentally appropriate ways.

During the 11:00 hour, while parents go to Adult Christian Growth or linger in the gathering space for coffee, the children are led in games and activities. Nursery care is provided for children from 9:15-12:00. 

Recently the children created this welcome banner in response to learning about how Jesus welcomed the little children in Mark 10:13-16.
