Loving Our Kids

The closer we get to our fall Preview Worship Gatherings, the more I’m thinking about how Second Mile Church can most effectively minister to our kids. I’ve got a two-year old of my own and my desires for her church experience really shape what I want for our children’s ministry. I think children’s ministry needs to be primarily about three things:

  1. Safety – It is essential that kids are protected and secure.
  2. Fun – I want my daughter to love gathering on Sundays to be with God’s people.
  3. Jesus – Kids need to learn something, particularly about Jesus. They need to grow to admire and adore him.

What else? What are the other things that you think matter to parents or matter to you personally? (Leave your comments below)
