When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." - Mark 10:14 NIV

After the music portion of the 11AM worship service Bros. Chris calls all of the children to the front of the church for a breif lesson. If you read between the lines you'll notice that this message is directed towards the adults just as much as the children.
As you might imagine, it's never a dull momment when the children respond to the pastor's questions!
The children then make their way to the youth room in the basement with Bros. Jay and a couple of helpers.
There they sing songs and take up offering before Bros. Jay teaches them a Bible lesson.
Many times Bros. Jay will show the Children a Bible story movie while pausing to explain the key points. He asks the children questions and encourages interaction.
If there's time after the lesson, Bros. Jay may take the children to the followship hall and load them up with sugar from donuts before sending them home with their parents.
