Hang on a second, I’m going to close my door and put my phone on DND… (looks out the window and closes the blinds). Ok, it’s safe in here now. Let’s talk about… outreach events. Now, I’ve been doing kids ministry for almost 10 years and have done the Fall Fests, Christmas musicals, Crusades, Easter egg hunts… done it all. And there’s nothing wrong with those. But I found myself looking for new faces on Sunday morning… and… nothing.
Most of us would agree that outreach is a big part of our children’s ministry. And so, each year we plan a series of events designed to show people Jesus’ love, invite them to our church, and minister to their families. These events are often good, but what does it take to make them great?
Often in kidmin, we assume that if we get the kids excited enough then they’ll tell their parents. It’s like a three-legged stool. In every event and activity, there are three groups we need to communicate with; missing one group usually means that our stool is going to fall over.
