One constant mark of a growing church is 'joy and laughter' according to Christian Schwarz. This book provides 20 Bible-based service outlines for all-age church - with instructions to have fun. There are creative ideas for Remembrance, Pentecost, the Environment and many more. The services are simple to plan, simple to resource, and simple to lead but offer deep ways for people of all ages to respond. It is worth looking at this book just for the introduction alone its good points on the 'why' and 'how' of all-age worship - but try some of the ideas and have fun!
