Children's Chapel Prayer

Almighty God our friend and companion,
We praise you for your constant love and guidance.
We admit that we do not always follow your commandments and the lessons Jesus has taught us.
We thank you for our families - brothers, sisters, grandmas and grandpas, and our pets.
We welcome and rejoice the arrival of new members to our families.
We love them and ask that you be with them and bless them.
We need your help because sometimes we do not know what to do
or how to change things once they have gone wrong.  Help us to do our best.
We pray for people everywhere that are in need.
For families who have no homes to sleep in every night or no cars to get to the store or work, for people who are sick and for teenagers and children who need your love.
We pray to you with open hearts.  Amen.

The prayer above was written by the children during a chapel service.

Thanks to Kevin Basmadjian for direction, Susan Hawthorne for Assistant Directing, Emily Basmadjian, stage manager, and countless other parents and adult friends behind the scenes that helped 14 of our youth perform this high quality and fun show!...

Welcome Pew Pals!

Don’t be surprised if you find a colorful stuffed animal in your pew beginning on Rally Day! We are launching a Pew Pal program.  Each pew will have a stuffed animal that a person (not only children) can hold during worship. The stuffed animal will have a tag that reads, “I am a Pew Pal. I will keep you company while we worship.  I can stay here, or you may take me...
