Everyday tip for your Sunday school lesson or children’s ministry
Children's ministry is all about listening
Within our children's ministry, do we take the time to really listen to the children instead of sometimes pretending? I know I have been guilty of this. Acting as if you listen, but in the meantime being busy with something else.
It's so easy not to make time for a child to really listen, when you're with so many children at the same time. However, listening is crucial within our children's ministry.
So we have to look for better ways to listen to children within our children's ministry. Maybe using creative ways for group discussions or working in small groups with the children. Or sometimes it's just a matter of sitting next to one of the children and having a real conversation with that child during a crafts activity.
