Church kids



“The perfect church service,would be one we were almost unaware of.Our attention would have been on God.” Bideingmytime C.S. Lewis

My kids acting up in church. I have strong opinions about what Sunday services should and should not be, and how I wish we could make them better – more engaging, more life changing, less BORING. My thoughts?


  • Be intellectually stimulating
  • Present practical help, but also spiritual ideological help
  • Be Bible oriented, but not just dry teaching
  • Have meaningful but not manipulative classes for children
  • Be casual – God likes a good heart, not just good clothing (cf. 1 Samuel 16:7)
  • Be focused on both inward growth and outward service
  • Reflect modern language and culture, not that of the 1800’s.
  • Not be overburdened with liturgy and formalism/ritualism

What say ye?
