The vision of Tapestry Community Church (TCC) is to live for the glory of Christ that the world may see our joyous hope as we love God, love people, and reach the world with the gospel. As a result, the goal for the TCC children’s ministry is to strive to offer a God glorifying, Bible saturated Nursery and Sunday School classes. Our desire is that the children’s ministry will be a launching pad for nurturing the faith of the next generation.
Our nursery is a place for children (up to 48 months) to learn simple truth statements as they form language skills, as well as a place where they hear foundational Bible stories. Our desire is to minister to the youngest in our church and to partner with parents as they train up their children in the Lord. During the designated lesson time, the teacher will pray with and for each individual child. The Nursery ministry is using the Children Desiring God curriculum called A Sure Foundation.
CHILDREN IN THE WORSHIP SERVICE
God-centered worship is extremely important in the life of Tapestry Community Church. We approach the Sunday morning worship time with great seriousness, earnestness, and expectancy. One of the ways we reflect this truth to our children is by welcoming them into the most central, most regular, most valuable, and most corporate activity of the church. When we encourage families to worship together, we communicate to the children that they are a part of the congregation and, as such, should be included when the church gathers to worship.
The presence of children also serves as a reminder to the church of its responsibility to nurture the faith of the next generation. We believe that children should be active participants in our worship service from the opening prayer to the benediction. Beginning at age 4 we heartily encourage parents to bring them into the service. We know that this effort comes with challenges and difficulties for the children, their parents, and those sitting around them. However, we are eager for children and their parents to feel and experience our warmest welcome into the service, and we are eager for everyone to be able to engage in the worship service with minimal distractions. A child does not instantly understand how to behave in a corporate worship service. It requires training and discipline. A good resource to help train your children is found here: Strategies for Engaging Children in the Worship Service.
We also provide a children’s bulletin to help your child listen to the sermon. For a better understanding of our philosophy of children's ministry, please listen to the following three-part sermon series on "Children and the Covenant Community":
