Family Worship Sundays are about to rock! Starting in July, our FlipSide kiddos will be helping lead a worship song on the first Sunday of each month. The goal is for the kids to feel connected to the congregation and see that they are an important part of the worship service regardless of their ages. Adrianna will call the kids down front. What a great chance for our kids to lead us in worshiping God together as a congregation!
