Regathering and Easter

By Joni Lum, Children's Ministry Consultant

I have just started to regather our in-person Kids Ministry, after not meeting in-person since March, 2020. Every leader will have a different level of comfort, what works for me is having our program outdoors, with distancing and masking. We temp check, ask screening questions, and have families register either before or when they arrive. Kids and parents are super happy to be out and around each other.

 

To reduce risk, we set up chairs, social distanced between households. During the week, I prepare bins for each kid with pens, scissors, markers, crayons, handouts for the day (Bible passage, coloring sheet, puzzle, response time activity), and any other items they might need. Families check in, kids go to a chair with their own bin for the day. They can color or draw while they are waiting for service to start. My leaders walk around and chat with the kids. We adapt activities so our kids and leaders can social distance, including games, singing, and the message and response time. We avoid multiple touch surfaces. Small group leaders gather their kids for discussion and an activity or craft before we walk the kids back to meet their parents.
