On Sunday morning during the sermon, the children are invited to the narthex area of the church.

They hear two stories: a popular children's book and a bible lesson related to the day's worship. These two stories are related to one another in theme and the children are invited to think about how these stories intersect with their own lives.

After a brief time of conversation, the group prays together and returns to worship.

Children who attend Word for Children are given a resource sheet for the day containing the titles of both stories, the questions the guide the conversation, the daily prayer, and a coloring activity related to the bible story.
