How was the weekend?? I have officially become a redneck with this beautiful baseball tan thing I have going on....the tshirt lines, the tank top lines, the sock lines, the flip flop lines, and all the other signs of being outside in the sun with no sunscreen. I've learned my lesson....apply sunscreen. I know.
So, I've been thinking back on this past school year. I am completely grateful for my children's teachers, their level of faithfulness, committment, service, and heart for these kids and the Lord.
I'm also grateful for the people at church that have also lead them spiritually this past year. Their Sunday school teachers and their Wednesday night leaders have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Phil. 1:3 says, "I thank my God every time I remember you."
I'm doing a lot of remembering right now and my heart is truly oozing gratitude and love.
As someone that works in the church, I'm extra grateful for those who have been these spiritual teachers this past year. I have seen this years group be completely creative and truly be enthused about growing these children closer and closer to Christ. What a blessing. I just love them!
I also spend this time of the year looking backwards thinking about children's ministry at church....
What could we have done better?
What didn't work?
What should we have done??
What would I like to see for the next school year?
So, my beloved bloggy friends....here is where you come in. I need your help. I need your ideas.
Tell me something that your church does....especially in children's ministry.....that you absolutely love. Tell me something that you think is fun that is going on in your church. And, if you want to throw in something regarding Women's Ministry....feel free to do so! :)
You are going to help me out so much. I think the sun got to my brain a little this weekend and the brain activity is a little flat. I know y'all are creative and also have some amazing things going on in your own church!
I can't wait for your ideas! Bring 'em on internets!!
I'm grateful for so much. And, you are a part of this oozing heart today!
hugs and blessings~
