Growing in Worship: Children's resource for each Sunday of the church year

Concordia Publishing House has released Growing in Worship: a worship resource for children for each Sunday of the church year (they are designed to match the Lutheran Service Book's 3 year lectionary).

From the CPH website:
“Growing in Worship provides children with a weekly guide to the words, actions, people and Bible stories they encounter in worship each Sunday. It engages their minds and their spirits with Christ as He is encountered each week in Word and Sacrament, and then sends them home with Christ–centered ideas and suggestions for the week ahead. Every congregation should get Growing in Worship. It is truly a wonderful resource for our children!”— Revs. David Johnson and Jon Vieker LCMS Commission on Worship

Colorful, eye-catching, and interactive, this four–page weekly worship folder highlights the theme and message of the day and presents the time of the Church Year and special festivals through the following sections:
Pray! Child–friendly rebus format highlights the prayer of the day (Collect
See! Eye–opening activity focuses children on what they will see in worship
Hear! Clear instructions help children follow the Gospel reading
Do! Engaging activity unpacks the message of the Gospel reading
Words To Know! Simple definitions aid comprehension of difficult words
Did You Know? Intriguing fact sparks thinking
Family Faith Talk! Brief, daily ideas for family activity and faith discussion

This resource is ideal for children ages 5–10, but parents and others will be drawn to its content and appealing design. These 8-1/2” x 14” (unfolded) bulletins are available in the three-year Lutheran Service Book Lectionary.
