KIDS MINISTRY REPORT
KIDS MINISTRY ANNUAL UPDATE
He’s 3 years old. He faces a challenge that most kids his age face – separation anxiety. But this year is different. A global pandemic amplied separation anxiety in our little ones. But he throws his backpack with its giant cartoon face over his shoulder and excitedly marches off to “church school” to tell the baby Jesus story. On the drive to church, he shares that “if he gets afraid, Jesus makes him brave.” That’s why we invest in kids. Spiritual truths get in us and change our future. This year, kids ministry was not unlike a church plant. Our three most signicant challenges were also our three biggest wins.
• We moved into a completely new facility space.
• We had to completely revamp our curriculum to reach kids at home and in person.
• We had to re-recruit and re-train all of our volunteers.
It wasn’t something we planned, but God used these unexpected changes to elevate our ministry to kids. Our new video curriculum is a huge hit with the kids and our volunteers. We’ve never had a more engaging curriculum that is easy to teach. This past year has forced us to really consider how we can best minister to kids.
As we move forward, our heart is to be purposeful and creative about how we do everything. It’s not simply getting back to how things were. It’s a chance for a fresh start and new ideas to connect kids and families with God’s grace.
