compline for kids
Compline or Night Prayer, is the final church service at the end of the day. During the program year (Septmeber to May) on the first Wednesday of each month, we have Compline for Kids, a special family friendly service. We begin at 5:30pm making pizzas in the kitchen with a member of the clergy. Families are encouraged to bring their favorite toppings to add to their pizzas. While the pizzas are in the oven, the children work on a service project with the Kelsey Wallace, Director of Children’s Ministry.
Some of the projects have included Valentines for service organizations in our community (firemen, EMT members and policemen), Easter Cards for people in nursing homes, packing goodies to send to service men and women overseas.
After eating our pizza, we move into the church for the Compline service. A member of the clergy officiates the service, and Dr. Anne leads us in song. The children are the acolytes, bell-ringers and oblation-bearers, and play music as well - a true educational and spiritual experience.
