Let’s Celebrate! Meet our Volunteer of the Week, Anna Pospisil!
Anna has been serving in Kidz Connection for almost three years. She serves every other Sunday at 9:00am. Anna does an amazing job leading the way and showing every child love and encouragement. She has a passion for the kids and people around her and it shows as she serves with her whole heart. THANK YOU Anna, the best is yet to come!
We are having another S.O.S. Recruitment this weekend! This is where we ask people to volunteer over the summer so our weekly team members can have some time to rest and recharge their batteries over the summer. If you know of a weekend you need off in June, July or August PLEASE put in your sub request now. Our schedule is live online through the end of August. This will be extremely helpful when I am speaking with summer volunteers next week to tell them where we have the biggest needs.
Do you have children in your classroom that are easily distracted? Welcome to the distracted generation.
Last week we talked about how encouraging dialogue with the children, building relationships and giving them clear expectations helps immensely.
Here are 3 more ways we can engage the distracted generation and effectively communicate God’s Word to them. (From Relevant Children’s Ministry blog post 5/13/14)
1. Use cooperative learning.
- give them projects and activities that require them to work together
2. Use peer-to-peer learning.
- allow them to teach each other what you taught them
- retention rate goes up to 90% when kids teach each other
3. Use different learning styles. This allows all the kids to learn in a way that is comfortable to them.
May God’s love overwhelm you and fill you with joy. May His passion for the lost overtake you and change how you view people. May His endless resources and promise to provide change how you give and live.
I look forward to seeing YOU soon. THANK YOU for being a part of what God is doing at Parkview, you are more than you know.
