We all know that January is a time for “New Year’s Resolutions!” However, many of us have a history of just making a list, but, never developing a plan for implementation. So, my challenge to KidMin leaders this year is to consider adopting this plan (you may need to adjust it a little to meet your own needs) for affirming your leaders throughout 2016:
- JANUARY – Consider writing a “handwritten” note to each of your leaders. Include in each note one observation about that leader’s greatest strength.
- FEBRUARY – Invite parents to help you prepare a “we love you and appreciate you” table in your kids ministry area on the Sunday closest to Valentine’s Day. This could be a quick-bite breakfast for your leaders. Encourage your parents to write notes of appreciation to their kids’ leaders.
- MARCH – Plan a “We love our teachers “MARCH” on a given Sunday morning. Gather children on a Sunday morning…one classroom at a time or several classes combined…and give them “We love our teachers!” signs. Lead them on a fun march through the hallways of the kids area. Be sure to enlist adults to march with you for security reasons.
