Every children’s minister I know is constantly trying to think of new ways to reach children and help them connect to church and Jesus. I’m sure our church is not the first one to do something like this, but recently we came up with a very simple idea that we tried and the kids absolutely loved it!
We made a birthday postcard and mailed it to all the children in our ministry who had a birthday this month. This is what the postcard said:
Our goal is for children to feel important and for them to be excited to receive a little something special from our children’s ministry. Also, our hope is that children who don’t attend very often, will possibly begin coming to church again.
One mom, who has children in our ministry, posted this photo on Facebook and thanked us for sending the card!
Have you tried any ideas similar to this? Do you have any ideas your church uses to connect with children and families? Share them in the comments!
