Worship. A curate needs to share in corporate prayer and worship, not only with the congregation, but also with the incumbent and other colleagues. Times and occasions for this daily/weekly prayer time together need to be clearly stated. There should be a regular opportunity to share in the design and leading of worship, and in preaching.

Worship. In addition to the worship practices begun in the home by parents, the faculty of Bethlehem Lutheran School assists the worship of children by instructing them in the preparation and leadership of private, semiprivate, and public devotions. Available printed materials are first introduced and made familiar to the child; ultimately the child will be encouraged to write his own prayers and simple devotions to make his worship more personal and meaningful.As an opportunity to use this form of acquired training, the school provides devotional leadership opportunities in the classroom on a regularly scheduled basis.
