I have failed the teens at our church. The teens really have become a lifeline for our Children's Ministry, serving in many areas. Sometimes I feel like all I accomplish on a Sunday morning herding…Continue

Wanna attend a conference for free?!

Hey Children's Ministry friends,I recently ran across this FREE online Children's Ministry conference called the CM Websummit. As someone who is always trying to learn and grow, I cannot wait for this to start. I even bought a Gold ticket for $35 so I can have the videos and stuff too. I have encouraged all of my volunteers to sign up as well. I just wanted to share this with you all because I know the importance of stretching a budget! Happy learning! Copy and paste this link for more…See More

Christmas help?? {I know... too soon!}

Our church traditionally does a children's Christmas musical during all 3 of our services on a December Sunday every year. I am trying to break away from the tradition of a "musical" as that's pretty outdated. We are one of the trendsetter churches in our away and I try to stay ahead of the time rather than sticking to traditions. I still want the kids doing some sort of program. Any fresh ideas or leads on what we can do??See More

Special Needs in the classroom

I have several kids with special needs on Sunday mornings. Some of which participate in our Oasis program where they are in self-contained classroom.  It is my dream to do some sort of Spiritual IEP for all kids who have and IEP at school. I don't, however, want to call it that or any other intimidating word... I don't want it to be a high stress thing- just help the parents, teachers and buddies all be on the same page. Does anyone do anything like this? (Please share any documents if you do!)…See More

First Sunday Away

Posted on April 11, 2013 at 12:12pm 0 Comments

Here it goes- my first blog as a new{ish} Children’s Minister. I’ve wanted to start this for over six months but man oh man does pastoral life keep you busy! Truth be told, between moving to a competently new area, starting a new job, building a relationship with my ~amazing boyfriend~ and making new friends including my ~wonderful roommate~; I’ve simply been praising God for every second that my head seems to keep itself above water. Don’t get me wrong, I *LOVE* my life, but sometimes (or most… Continue
