When One Teaches, Two Learn

Figuring out children's ministry one day at a time

We’ve Missed You!

on July 5, 2013

Summertime can be rough in ministry.  As the routines of the school year fade away, so too can the routine of coming to church.  Don’t let your kids just fade away into “vacation mode” without letting them know that they are cared about and missed at church!

I made six of these “We’ve Missed You!” buckets to take to families that we haven’t seen at church in at least three weeks.  I’m also new to the church, so this is a great opportunity to get to meet the kids and their families 🙂  All of the items in the bucket came from the dollar store, so this is a very affordable option for even those with itty-bitty budgets!  We’re talking just over $20 for all six buckets!  Take a look…

We Have Missed You

 

Basically, I took a sand pail and lined it with colorful tissue paper.  Then I filled the bucket with sidewalk chalk, a Christian card game, bubbles, freeze-pops, and a few crazy straws.  Simple, but full of things that kids love!  Each bucket had a tag attached to the front and a little note inside.  You can create a note to suit your needs, but this is what I wrote:

We have missed you!

I mean, we hope you’re having a super awesome summer and everything, but you are missed at First Alliance Church!  We’d love to have you join us on Sunday morning. See you there, right?  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this bucket of summer fun. See you Sunday!

I’ll be delivering the buckets tomorrow, which should be fun!  What do you do to keep touch with families, especially over the summer?
