It is important-perhaps now more than ever-to help our children establish a sense of excitement for attending church and create lasting memories of wonderful times with God, family, and friends to cherish and share with future generations. Follow Debbie as she shares her typical Sunday and help instill that enthusiasm for the simple in your own children. You may even recognize some of her memories as some of your very own.
Then, it's time to get ready—to church we must go. My sister Rachel wears her fancy dress of yellow.
At church, we run up the stairs to Sunday school, Where we learn about God from teachers so cool.
They tell us stories of what Jesus had taught And sometimes will bring us a hot glazed doughnut.
After class we know to meet the Joneses on the hour, To take us to "big church" while Mom sings in the choir. The Joneses are special friends to us, see, And love us as their own as much as can be. My sister Susannah and I start to race To see who will be the first to kiss Mrs. Jones's face.
When sitting in the pew, we sit still and tall And spy a quick wave from Mom to us all.
During the service, my favorite thing Is trying on Mrs. Jones's pretty ring. Susannah searches for candy in her purse with a bow While Mr. Jones and Rachel play tic-tac-toe.
Mr. Jones sings the wrong verse to every hymn To make us all chuckle and give him a grin. He gives us our offering to put in the plate, And Mrs. Jones tells us to sit up straight. Finally, after the last prayer and a yawn, We adjourn outside to lemonade on the lawn.
