Parenting in the Pew
Are you interested in your child growing to enjoy worship? I highly recommend, Parenting in the Pew by Robbie Castleman. We have our own copy of this book in our children's ministry.

Here are some ways to help engage your child in the difference between "going to church" and "going to worship." Children learn best by doing. Children learn to worship by worshiping – through participation, practice and patience. Sunday morning starts Saturday night. Prepare your heart and home with a "worship is loving the Lord" attitude. What is your Sunday morning attitude like? Eager or going through the motions? Keeping Sunday simple can help keep Sunday special for God. Too many Sundays are lost with lost socks. Too many Sundays are overshadowed by what we wear and how we look. Clothes, shoes and socks for Sunday need to be readied by Saturday evening. Start the morning sharing with little ones that "Jesus is excited! This is his special day!" Listening to "Jesus music" while getting ready at home helps keep the tone of the morning calm, positive and even-tempered. Children need to sense our excitement about worshiping with God's people. Children need to hear how the Lord met us in worship, how much we learned in Sunday school, what we love about our church family. Our children need to see through us how the Spirit is at work for his purposes in our communities of faith.

There are many more ideas on how to engage your child in worship in Parenting in the Pew, and it covers children ranging in age from preschoolers to teens. Please see the Children's Ministry Director for more ideas or to borrow the church's copy.

Sunday Morning Fellowship Time Volunteers
Thank you to all the volunteers!

Compassion International
We are a proud supporter of Compassion International, sponsoring a specific child since 2008. "Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults."

Please click here to see the video for how our contribution and all Compassion International supporters helped "break the cycle of poverty" among children and their families all around the world.

Ministries
We have a lot of ministries and ways to get involved. The best way to get plugged in or even start something new is to join one of our ministries. If you are interested in playing a more active roll in the church then call the office or talk to one of our elders after a service about which team would be a good fit for your interests. The Church is the body of Christ, we need YOU and YOUR gifts or we are incomplete! Click here to view ministry options.
Society of St. Andrew Gleaning
The Society of St. Andrew network uses volunteers to glean nutritious produce from farmers' fields and orchards after the harvest. This food instead of being left behind to rot is delivered to those in need. College Park Presbyterian Church has had a history of working with the Society of St. Andrew and found these events to be enjoyable ways to help provide for the community. Please contact Don Wadsworth or the Society of St. Andrew website for more information. You can also go to the Society of St. Andrew calendar to check out upcoming gleanings to participate in.
