I wanted to take a break from all of the serious posts and really get down to some Kids Ministry business. You know that if you have served in Kids Ministry for 30 years or 1 day there are definitely some things that you have to laugh at.
We all know that pain don’t we? At our church, on Sunday mornings, second grade and younger has to be picked up by their parents. I teach second grade Sunday School and some days I’m certain I look like that camel!
We have to make this face often in Kids Ministry, right? Especially when the parents ask the little one if he was “good” in Sunday School and you know the truth!
Everyone be honest, how many of you really call it something other than “Big Church”?
Don’t you wish you could use your Bible bucks at Wal-Mart?I think we all have this moment … once or twice per day.
What’s the oldest VBS song you have stuck in your head? For me, I think it’s “It’s a ramblin’ road trip …”
I teach preteens every year in VBX and every year I say that I’m going to demote myself to a younger grade.
