Yes, I missed Easter Service this year. We had our Easter service in a University Coliseum. We had the children in a different building. I provided leadership and oversight over my team. This was my first Easter with this church. I've been here for 10 months.
I knew that I was going to miss service so I had a plan throughout the entire week. We also had a Kidz Blitz event on Good Friday so I had to prepare for that as well. Everyday leading up to Easter, I had quiet time with the Lord, I exercised, and stayed prayerful. I was listening to podcasts from pastors I enjoy. I was determined to keep my connection fresh daily with the weight of two high level events so close to each other.
Even though I missed service, I was able to have a fresh connection with Christ by managing my time to reflect my priority.
I would not say that I have MISSED worship due to serving in Children's Ministry. Rather I find myself in children's church and thus I EXPERIENCE worship due to serving in children's ministry.
I've known you for a few years now and I think I understand your heart in this question. However, I feel the context of your question assumes that "worship" only happens within the context of a gathering of adults. I don't believe that to be true.
