What if my child has the wiggles during worship?

| Children

God put the wiggles in children - it's okay to relax during worship. At Bedford Presbyterian Church, young children do not have to suppress their wiggles or their giggles!

May we suggest...sit toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what is going on during the service. Sometimes they get tired of looking at the back's of other's heads.

Quietly explain the parts of the service and actions of the pastor, ushers, choir, etc. Sing the hymns, pray and voice the responses. Children to learn to  worship by being in worship with others.

If you have to leave the service with your child, feel free to do so, and please come back. Jesus said "Let the children come to me."

Remember, the way we welcome children in church directly affects the way they respond to the Church, God, and to one another. Let them know that they are at home in our house of worship.
