Keeping in Touch

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

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.
