It's Not Too Late . . .

Our new Fall ministries have begun, but did you take time to sit down with the parents and share your vision/purpose, the curriculum their children will be learning from and how they as parents will be able to continue the learning all week at home? If not, it isn't too late to do so! Consider the following -

  • schedule at least two dates in the next couple weeks for parents to sit with you and learn about what will be happening with their children at church - set aside one Sunday for adult classes to focus on this and one or two evenings during the week so parents are able to choose a time which best fits their schedule
  • get a mailing out sharing the info parents need to know
  • post on-line a copy of your mailing
  • make phone calls to be sure all parents know what will be happening with their children and most importantly, how they will be able to continue the learning at home
Parents are the ones who are primarily responsible for teaching their children about God and how to know and walk with Him, so it should be part of our "must-do" list each Fall to be sure we communicate very well with our parents. Equip them, help them know what to do to, "Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." (Deuteronomy 6:7)
