The key question in planning all ages worship is: "How can we share the Bible passages and their message, visually and actively, in ways that will keep children involved as well as inspire adults?" Usually we are looking for a drama, or a parade, or an experience that can involve the whole congregation. Once we have that in place then the hymns, prayers, and so forth come quite easily. This book includes such resources for use on special days when children are present.
