Refresh Your Soul
By Joni Lum, Children's Ministry Consultant
Kidmin leaders, take a deep breath! It’s that crazy time of year when we’re planning parties, staffing programs in the midst of flu seasons, seeing attendance fluctuate due to performances and sports, all while we’re trying to create holiday memories for our own families! Whew, I’m already tired just thinking about it. Although it is crazy, I love this time of year. I love seeing families reconnect and focus on being together, and I love the time with my own family.
This time of the ministry year, I’m thinking about two things. First, is finishing well. What do I need to do to end this year well? Second, is planning for the new year. What needs to be done to take the ministry to the next level? Whether you’re in charge of a class or the whole ministry, you’ll find yourself with downtime in December. Take time to dream. Refresh your soul. Gain new vision. See you in 2020!
