This resource shows how to create meaningful worship experiences for everyone who comes to your church--children, youth, and adults.
A three-volume series based on the Revised Common Lectionary, Forbid Them Not offers specific suggestions for prayers, hymns, litanies, sermon illustrations, and ways to present Scripture so that children--as well as older worshipers--can really hear the message. (Even if your church does not follow the lectionary, you can find suggestions related to any Scripture passage by using the index.)
Forbid Them Not, Year A includes 58 full-page, reproducible activity worksheets related to each Sunday's worship theme. With these ideas and resources at hand, you can create worship services that minister to adults and to children.
