Children of all ages are welcome to a denominational children’s worship experience

By Jan King

Children of all ages, welcome to worship! Mark your family calendar for a 25-minute children’s worship experience on Wednesday, July 1, at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern time). You will meet Louise Boid, a colorfully opinionated bird from Brooklyn, N.Y., as she moves to central Pennsylvania to get away from those noisy New York City ducks and pigeons! Louise Boid is brought to us by the Puppet and Story Works founded by Dotti and Steve Seitz of Manheim, Pa.

You will also experience a storyteller, Linda Himes from La Verne (Calif.) Church of the Brethren, sharing the message of God’s love for each of God’s children, yourself included! 

There will be songs led by Carol Hipps Elmore, minister of Nurture and Music at Oak Grove Church of the Brethren in Roanoke, Va., interspersed throughout the service to keep you singing and moving. Finally, Louise Boid will sing her latest rendition of “Rockin’ Robin”! 

We hope you will join us for a delightful children’s worship time, immediately preceeding the denominational worship service. Both of these worship times are planned and sponsored by the Annual Conference Program and Arrangements Committee.
