Children in Worship

We believe children are a vital part of Augustana’s worship community and they are invited to attend worship services. Bringing a child to church can be a real exercise in aggrevation, But then again, so are many other facets of parenting, and the rewards are well worth the effort! Actually, bringing children into the sanctuary is something like letting them eat at the dinner table. Although they may not participate in the exact same way adults do, they are growing in understanding and learning to take their places in the church family!

Worship bags are available for children ages 6 months to 6 years. You and your child will find several helpful activities to help make both of your worship experiences more meaningful. Worship bags are located directly outside of the nursery. After worship,  please return the bags to the blue tub also located outside of the nursery.
