Thank you so much for your creativity, and willingness to share. It is so nice to get in contact with people who realize that we all have the same goal, reaching children to know and grow in Christ. Because we are a young church with young families, I don't have a huge budget, but we have consistently used the material I have found at Kidology.org. This has been an incredible blessing to me, and the children and teachers that I work with. THANK YOU!!!

Basic Keep Christ in Your Ministry

I have no doubt that children's ministry leaders and volunteers will keep "Christ in Christmas" during this season. I am more concerned about whether we will keep a relationship with Jesus at the center of our life and ministry. Christmas serves as a perfect object lesson on this topic because Christ slips away from our ministries the same way He slips out of Christmas.
