Enjoy These Thoughts from Our Chilrden’s Sabbath Speakers

leader. Ford McDonald

And it was nice that people could know who I am since my
name was in the bulletin- they could put my name and my
face together. Nate Marshall

Why do you think our church chooses to do Children’s
Sabbath each year?

— I think it is important because if you are never a
leader you are always a follower, and if you are always
a follower you never grow in your spiritual journey. Ava
Grace Hart

— It seems like the adults are always doing everything;
the kids should get a chance, too. Grayson Snyder

— It’s important for children to lead worship because
God loves the children as much as anyone else and
children get a voice from doing this. Wells Shelley

— I think it’s important for children to have the chance
to lead worship, because they might want to lead their
own church one day. Sawyer Cruce

— I think it’s important because it helps us understand
the service since we are leading the service. I think it
helps the younger children too since they are watching
people their age lead the service. Sydney Smith
