Get Plugged In
What is one to blog about?
I am not a professional blogger nor I have ever even blogged once in my lifetime so please bear with me as I figure out how children's ministry can best utilize this new tool! I have a few ideas and will be seeking The Lord for more thoughts and inspiration. I would love it, if you would also make suggestions and let me know how it might best serve our families at CCMP.
The first idea that came to mind was using the blog to share what the kids learned on Sunday. This would give families opportunities to discuss what the kids had learned and offer parents a tool to get the conversation started. I know all to well that sometimes when parents ask their kids what did they learn in class today they respond, "We had a snack!" :) Knowing that your child learned about Noah and the Great Flood might just give one the upper hand to get a great conversation going and reinforce what they just learned.
The second is to use it as a way to let everyone know about exciting changes or events that are taking place. For example, it is highly possible after reviewing several curriculum that we will be making a change in the materials for school age children. Teachers have been reviewing new materials and I will be completing my last pilot test this Sunday before making a final decision. I could tell you all the great things about it and why we are considering making a change but I better keep you in suspense and save that for another blog.
The third is to use it to share my heart and prayer request for the ministry. Praying for more dedicated people who want to share the love of Christ to sweet little precious children is one that should remain on your prayer list.
Looking forward to all your feedback and suggestions!

So glad to see you on here letting folks know about our Children's ministry. How many teachers do we need to staff the ministry? Do they need to serve every Sunday or can they sign up to do less days to start? How many kids are there on and average Sunday? What positions are your greatest need now? And please tell us how much training folks need to have to serve. I am praying that interested folks can get involved in what God is doing in the young folks at Calvary.
Thanks & Blessings,
