Hi, I’m Abby. I’ve been involved with children’s ministry for as long as I remember and I love it! I was recently hired as a children’s pastor at my church and count it an incredible privilege to get to know the children of our church on a deeper level. At the same time I recognize the weighty responsibility that it is to be a significant influence in the spiritual formation of so many young hearts. As James 3:1 states, “Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly” (NLT).
In light of this responsibility, I take my lesson planning very seriously. As I prepare for children’s events, whether on Sunday morning or throughout the week, I’ve found that in many cases I have to surf through a plethora of books, websites, and magazines to create lessons that I feel are meaningful and engaging, which can be frustrating. It is my hope that the lesson plans that I create and materials that I find will be a helpful compilation of resources for you as you work with the children of your church.
Please feel free to contact me. I love exchanging ideas on how to improve children’s ministry and impact the Kingdom!
