I bought the tape of Karl's class ("Help, I'm in Charge of the Children's Ministry") and we (John and I) have both listened to it twice and have given it to our senior pastor. It will be a "classic" soon. Thanks for giving so much of yourself! WE APPRECIATE YOU!

ABC's of KIDOLOGY: The Letter "M" = Motivation

We don't serve the kids, the parents, or even the Senior Pastor! We serve Jesus first of all. When our motivation is to serve Jesus and Him alone, nothing can phase us. When we get discouraged we have shifted the focus off Jesus and onto ourselves; off our Calling and onto our Problems. We have forgotten that Jesus is more into building us than our ministries.

Whatever you do: (word or deed)

1) Work at it with all your heart (v23)

2) Do it for the Lord, not man (v23)

3) Do it in the Name of the Lord (v17)

4) Do it with a spirit of gratitude (v17)

Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
