It is our vision to create the opportunity for all people to hear and to engage in God’s stories. The mystery and wondering of God and the stories of God are at the heart of faith formation.
What follows is a way of being in worship in a way that invites all people to grow in love for God and one another. Incorporating many different learning styles, Worship & Wonder uses a multi-sensory approach of storytelling as a primary means for encountering God, so God is experienced, not just learned about. This approach enables all generations, together, to bring their lived experiences into dialogue with God in the biblical stories and to share these experiences with others.
WHO WE ARE
Worship & Wonder – for All Ages
Over the last 40 years, Young Children & Worship has been used all over the world and people who have used it found it continually transcended its original purpose for children ages 3 to 7 years old in church settings. Young Children & Worship has been used from ages 2 to 100! It has been used in children’s hospitals, at camps, for adult retreats, in church board meetings, at General Assembly’s, in family homes, and in nursing homes. The art of storytelling has invited people from all ages and in many places to come and experience the wonder and mystery of God. Worship & Wonder is a new ecumenical organization created to give the opportunity for all people to hear and to engage in God’s stories. The mystery and wondering of God and the stories of God are at the heart of faith formation.
It is because of this transcendence of age and place that the Worship & Wonder board has decided to offer this incredible storytelling approach and to broaden our trainings, resources, and support to fit the needs of different ages and institutions.
Trainings are available now both online and in person. As we continue to navigate the “Covid” epidemic, it is vital we find ways to reach churches and families in new ways and to provide support as the look of the church landscape continues to evolve.
