This Sunday at Brentwood

We invite you to worship with us in person or online this week as we gather for Lawn Chair Church at 10:00 a.m.

Children’s Ministry Activities with Pastor Sarah

Children’s Christmas Program
This year we will be having a series of questions and answers: as many youth (6th grade and up) as possible will ask questions about Christmas they would like our children to answer. Once the sanctuary is decorated for Advent, children and youth (by appointment only) will be asked to meet at the church (at different times) for a short recording. 

In addition, any children (or youth) who would like to sing, will also be invited to schedule a recording at the sanctuary. Then, through the magic of Phil and Emily, all the pieces will be spliced together to form our program.

I will be scheduling these appointments and recording the videos. If you have a 6-12 grader, please consider asking them to think of a question (about God, Jesus, Christmas, etc.) they would like a child to answer.

If you have a child or youth who would like to offer a song (vocal or instrumental), please let me know. I can’t wait to hear what they all have to say or sing or play. This should be fun!

Wednesday Night Zoom Meetings for Kids
Zoom meetings for kids will begin in January. On the first Wednesdays of the month, Sarah will host children 4 yrs-3rd grade (Kids’ Club) and on the third Wednesdays the Middlers (4th-6th grade) will be invited for a zoom meeting. Meetings will last 30 minutes.
