I loved Jon’s recent post on The Full Circle of Christian Ministry, check it out:
Friday night: Youth and Chidlrens Work
Child: I lost my jumperLeader: Where did you leave it?
Child: I don’t know
Leader: Let’s check lost property
Leader: Is your name on it?
Child: I don’t knowLeader: Is it one of these?
Child: No I don’t think so
Monday Morning: Older folks Bible Study and Meal
Gentleman: Someone’s taken my walking stick
Staff: Where did you leave it?
Gentleman: By the window
Staff: Which window?
Gentleman: That one over there
Staff: Did it have your name on it?
Gentleman: Yes, but it’s been rubbed offStaff: We’ll sort it out tomorrow
There are certain principles that you can apply to working with any age group…
Absolutely true, we find most days someone is popping into the church for lost property – be it from a pre-school group or our older peoples groups.
