1. Do things children enjoy in your children's church.
Your children's church should be child centered.
2. Make every child feel
special and loved from the minute that child enters the door until they go home.
if you do those two things children will love children's church.
an answer to the question is simple, but
having a children church children love takes commitment and creativity.
It is much easier to do things in children's church that fit
your personal tastes and your learning styles instead of discovering what children
like. Children's church is not for you. It is for the children.
Your children church should be high energy and fun. Use fun
music. Vary the pacing. Use lots of variety. Have more than one person involved
in your children's church program. Our curriculum can help you save tons of time
by providing lots of fun ways to teach eternal truths packed into every lesson.
We have 5 different children's church units ready to be used in your church. You
can see a description of each title at the bottom of this page or click on a

Observe the children during your children church. What holds
their attention? What do they enjoy? Children will readily let you know what
they love, if you care enough to ask.
Staff your children
ministry with people who love children and know how to show that love
appropriately. Train the ushers to greet the children as well as the parents.
Your face and the staff's faces should light up when the child enters the room.
Find time to chat with the child one on one either through greeting at the door,
small group time or game time. Children need to feel important and not just part
of a large group. This kind of attention requires staff to be caring and
trained. We can help you recruit and train volunteers with our DVD or CD
Recruit Volunteers for Children's Ministry.
