resources for effective children's ministry
We will also look at resources to help our teachers and parents grow in their own walks with God to help them be more effective teachers and parents!
It may seem impossible, but it
is almost time to begin thinking about VBS for the summer! In this
issue we will give you a "sneak peek" at the VBS resources for this next
summer of ministry and I would like to once again encourage you to make
summer ministry to kids a priority at your church. I know of more
and more churches that are choosing to eliminate all or most of their opportunities
to minister to children in the summer, but three months is one quarter
of your year and that is an extremely long time to have no opportunities
for effective ministry to our kids. Many churches tell me they have
problems recruiting teachers in the summer, but I find that volunteers
live up to the expectations we have of them and if we say that summer ministry
to kids is not important, they will not volunteer. If we say that
summer ministry to kids IS important and people will step forward to be
a part of this ministry. VBS is one of our best curriculum buys for
the year - I encourage you to plan to utilize at least two or three VBS
resources . . . we will talk more about this in our special VBS issue the
beginning of February, but for now . . . the "sneak peek"!
