Keeping in Touch

Children's Ministry Magazine

Summertime means vacations, relaxation, special activities, and company -- it also means kids miss church more than usual. Use these ideas to keep in touch with your kids over the summer months.

Lunch Bunch
Plan several dates over the summer to get together with the kids in your class for lunch at a local park. Have kids bring sack lunches and give them reminder phone calls one week prior to each date.

Traveling Mascot
At summer's beginning introduce kids to a stuffed animal class mascot. When kids leave for family vacations, send the mascot to travel with the family. Include a travel journal and encourage kids to write about the mascot's adventures. Have kids report on their travel adventures when they return.

Call Me
Give kids a summer calendar and highlight dates for them to call or email you. Include a silly purpose for each call, such as "Call me and tell me what you had for breakfast today" or "Email me your top 10 places to get wet this summer." When kids call or email remind them about upcoming Sunday services or special events at your church.
