Greetings brothers and sisters in Christ, I had this in the Christian fellowship forum but did not receive any response. I guess it is ok to enter it here since children church can be a denominational debate. Some may absolutely oppose children church but for those who do have a seperate children's ministry I would like to know what ideas or programs are working best for you. I have been blessed with the appointment as Christian Education Director for our church beginning 2011. We have 101 members and about 160 in attendance at Sunday worship. My first priority is our childrens ministry during the Sunday morning worship service. We have anywhere from 15 to 25 kids between grades K-6 on any given week. My questions for you are what does your church do for this age group? What have you found that works very well? Are the children all together? Do you seperate them into age specific groups? Do you use a program? Our church has experienced growth now for the past two years and we want to provide a top notch Jesus Christ honoring ministry for the children. Any ideas would be greatly appreceated! God Bless!
