Children's Worship is a free innovative online worship experience for children everywhere. The production is a collaborative effort sponsored by the United Methodist Churches of the Sacramento Pentecost Circuit. The 15-20 minutes includes music, faith-based messages and special friends to meet--including talking animals and a puppet called “Mort” ... video clips come from around our church family in Northern California and Nevada.
The series started May 31, 2020 and, given the COVID-19 restrictions, will be continuing into the new year. The weekly worship video is posted, and the link sent to registered participants by 5:00 pm Fridays each week.
