If you have been to worship at Messiah North meeting at TriMountain Golf Course, you know that one of the special additions to the worship space is a craft table for children. The table allows busy hands to be creative while still listening, watching, and participating in worship.
Not long ago, the same kind of activity space was added to Saturday worship in the Hazel Dell campus sanctuary. Children are welcome to join a Messiah staff member who will guide them in craft-making while still allowing time for listening and participating in all parts of worship, especially the children's message, and Holy Communion.
We know that children learn a great deal about the faith and worship from watching their parents and other adults. The craft table provides an opportunity for children to listen, learn and respond to what they are seeing and hearing.
Childcare also continues to be available in Messiah's nursery during all services on both Saturday and Sunday.
