School's out! And summer's on!
If you, like many, need creative recruiting ideas, check out this article in our Children's Ministry Magazine archives: "Does God Go on Summer Vacation at Your Church?"
Here's what one children's minister said in response to the article: "At our church we have a group of teachers and actually rotate teaching every third or fourth Sunday. It works really well, everyone gets vacation time and can switch with each other when necessary. We use lots of sources, one being Live Big, Live your belief in God, It's been very rewarding for children and teachers; our teachers come from almost all the sources mentioned in your article.
