Children's Worship

Children's Worship at the American Church in Paris strives be a welcoming, inclusive environment in which children meet Jesus, grow together in His love, and are made to feel that they are full, participating members of the Body of Christ.

We invite all children ages 3-11 to participate in Children's Worship each Sunday at the 11h00 and 13h30 services of the American Church (with breaks corresponding with the French public school holidays).

We use a combination of Godly Play, God’s People Celebrate, God’s Big Picture, and Connect curricula to engage children in the biblical narrative and meaningful liturgy through prayer, storytelling, art, games, movement, and age-appropriate discussion.

Children’s Worship strives for inclusiveness. We welcome all children regardless of their spoken language, denominational background, or level of ability. Because God has blessed all human beings with unique skills and talents, we engage children in the classroom using a variety of learning styles so that all children feel that the stories of God are easily accessible to them. We also offer various individualized options for participation under the direction of Special Education Consultant, Lauretta Haugh. If your child requires one-on-one adult attention in a classroom setting, a Worship Buddy (volunteer adult or youth aide) can be provided; please contact our director for more information.

Children’s Worship also sponsors Family Ministry Events throughout the year including workshops, family service opportunities, our annual Christmas pageant, social events, and our annual Vacation Bible School. We also offer yearly family communion classes, taught by Pastor Michelle Wahila, for families with children who wish to partake in the Eucharist but who have not yet participated in Confirmation classes. Please check out our calendar for upcoming events: link under development.

Our program would not be possible without the participation of our dedicated team of adult and youth worship leaders. We offer flexible scheduling options for volunteer participation, so please prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to serve in this ministry.
