Got a very nice email today from Justin at Simply Youth Ministry telling the SYM bloggers about a GR8 Grad bundle. It’s like $25 worh of books for $14-something. A good deal, anyway. Here’s the link: http://bit.ly/Itu3rQ
Small churches, we are the fortunate ones. We can make celebrating the accomplishments of our students a church-wide event. We’re not bound by size and people limitations. Making a big deal of a student’s life milestones accomplishes two key purposes: 1) It garners precious critical mass, making an event feel “successful” and 2) Provides precious inter-generational moments, bringing the youth ministry into a church’s spotlight (in a good way!).
So where to start? Grab the key leaders from all parts of the church and ask them how they want their ministry area to participate. In the meantime, I’m going to post some grad ideas over the next few days.
