Children and Youth in Worship

We welcome children and youth and want them to experience the love of God.

During our Child Dedications at the La Verne Church of the Brethren, we remind the congregation that they have the awesome responsibility and opportunity to speak God’s voice to our children. We invite the members of this church family to let each child know that:

  • They are wanted here.
  • They are important children of God that can make a difference in our world.
  • All people they come in contact with are also loved by God.
  • How they feel are important to us.

Children bring in and carry out the light each Sunday.For children first grade and under, there is nursery (Aqua Room) available during the worship service by a staff member of the church.  However, if you want to keep your young one with you they are most welcome to be in worship.

Children who are 2nd grade and older are encouraged to worship with their families.  Children serve in leadership roles in worship as scripture readers, candle lighters, singers and sometimes planning the whole service.

We believe that children and youth are just as much a part of this congregation as our adults.  We value their leadership, their opinions and their gifts.

Children come forward in worship for Children's Time.
