It is early on Sunday morning and the halls of your church begin to come alive with activity. There is a contageous feeling of joy and enthusiasm in the air as you eagerly anticipate the day ahead. Your leaders warmly welcome volunteers as they arrive, confirming that everything is in place for the day’s Bible lessons. Your volunteers not only feel committed and connected to the preschoolers and children in their class, but also with the other volunteers. There is a sense of community within your ministry that gives your volunteers confidence in knowing that they are truly making a difference.
Seeing the difference these volunteers make may cause other people to ask how they, too, can be a part of such an exciting area. Yes, even with crying babies, curious toddlers, and restless children, teaching the love of Christ to our youngest children can be a fun and rewarding experience. However, creating an environment that reflects this often can be difficult.
Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
