AMEN Children’s Program 2021

“Little Lights”

AMEN is thrilled to announce that we have enhanced the children’s program for this year’s conference!  Meetings and/or activities will be planned for them during all the adult meetings, except the divine hour worship service Sabbath morning as AMEN encourages families to attend church together.

We are so excited to welcome healthcare professionals AND their families to this year’s AMEN conference!

CHILDREN’S CHOIR:

Due to COVID safety precautions, AMEN has decided NOT to have choirs this year so that includes the planned children’s choir.   However, the children will still learn ‘Only One Life’ as the theme song and about 5 children will be chosen to sing it for church Sabbath morning.  We are sad that we can’t include all the children in the performance but we feel this is wisest for this year.  Thank you for understanding.

For those that would like to teach ‘Only One Life’ to your children ahead of time, we encourage you to do so.
