The Gift of Time
For all of the hours, days, and weeks your volunteers give, why
not give them a calendar to say, "Thank you for your time!"
Good: Give your volunteers a Christian calendar
from a book or discount store.
Better: Buy checkbook-style calendars with
clear plastic covers. Create a design you can slip into the covers
that has your ministry's logo and add a special message such as, "I
thank God every day for the time you give to our kids."
Best: Take digital pictures of kids in your
ministry with volunteers and send in 12 to a calendar-making
company such as shutterfly.com. For a custom calendar template,
childrensministry.com/custom_calendar. Include significant
ministry events in your calendar for the next year- including when
your fall program kicks off.
