Children’s Correspondence Team

Print Friendly

Our children’s correspondence team is a group of children who’ve
committed to express compassion and encouragement to people in our
church by writing notes and letters. Each week our pastor gives me
a list of people who need a note of encouragement, condolence, or
congratulations. Then I phone or email each team member with the
names of one or two of these people. The kids write their notes of
encouragement, and parents review the notes before they’re mailed
to the recipients.

The kids who participate in the correspondence team are
responsible to write their notes within a certain amount of time,
to attend one training session per year, and to resign from the
ministry when they’re no longer able to fulfill their obligations.
We’ve decided that hand-written notes are preferable, but
computer-generated notes are appropriate for certain occasions.

The recipients have written notes back to our children thanking
them for this kind gesture. And children have developed loving
relationships with church members whom they might not have gotten
to know any other way.
