Ministry With Children
Children in Worship
Children are always welcome in worship at TEMC. Children of all ages are invited to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion with their families. Children are also encouraged and given opportunities throughout the church year to participate in our 9:15 a.m. worship services by assisting with the offering and through involvement in Children’s Church School.
