OK Gang...this ain't in the youth forum--thought I'd put it in a more active one...so mods, if you move it, I understand. I must attract multiples. I have served in 20 years of ministry (mostly paid, a couple volunteer, and a couple of summer missions stints) 8 churches. Every one of them, during my time there, had at least one set of twins. Current church is no exception. However, I'm about to have a hands-full situation. I have some upcoming 7th graders that are triplets. They're very active, all boys. Furthermore, there's a good chance a family is moving in soon to our area in a few months. They must be really sharp...they've been making appointments and talking to area ministers about their churches (obviously a church home is a very high priority. They have quads. No, not thigh muscles...quadruplets. Two boys, two girls. This is uncharted territory for me. Obviously, I should love all of them, and treat them as separate individuals and not "the triplets" or "the quads." But outside of that... Any of you people have experience in this area? Do you have any further suggestions? Another thing: I try to be very sensitive regarding the cost of our events. But with multiples in a group, even a $20 event (such as what we're doing Friday) gets expensive for parents (just imagine a $200 camp x 4 kids!)...how early is too early to approach the money issue, so that I can offer my assistance if needed? Thanks in advance.
