50 Ways to Strengthen Ministry with Children
The Lewis Center for Church Leadership is offering a new resource on building children’s ministry programs. The information lists ideas such as:
· Pair an adult class or group with each children’s class to forge intergenerational bonds. The adults can provide support and encouragement and help with special activities.
· Give gifts to expectant moms. Offer a support group for new parents.
· Have special children’s events throughout the year, for example, a Noah’s ark costume party, movie nights, seasonal events, etc.
· Don’t guess at children’s needs. Listen to children. Solicit input and feedback from children themselves, not just parents and adults leaders.
