Should Children be in “big church”?

In his short talk “Should children sit through big church” John Piper makes some very helpful comments about the value of teaching your children how to worship. He references  The Family Together in God’s Presence, which was written by he and his wife while his children were still quite young.

Every local church will need to work out the practical methods for instructing children, and determine the appropriate time to integrate them into the larger assembly. Regardless of where each parent and church lands, we must agree that in all our services “The aim is to awaken them to the greatness and the majesty of God, not just his tenderness and familiarity.”
