smiley.jpgParents become very supportive when they know what you are doing.

1. Videotape a some of your lessons, games, outings, etc. and show them to parents. For added fun, find someone who can edit them and make a small video collage of youth events. Works great for youth group publicity too!

2. Invite parents along for youth events as chapperones and sponsors. To avoid child embarrassment ask children if the mind their parents along for the event. If they do, have parents work with a different group of youth that does not include their sons and daughters.

A lthough things are not perfect
B ecause of trial or pain
C ontinue in thanksgiving
D o not begin to blame
E ven when the times are hard
F ierce winds are bound to blow
G od is forever able
H old on to what you know
I magine life without His love
J oy would cease to be
K eep thanking Him for all the things
L ove imparts to thee
M ove out of “Camp Complaining”
N o weapon that is known
O n earth can yield the power
P raise can do alone
Q uit looking at the future
R edeem the time at hand
S tart every day with worship
T o “thank” is a command
U ntil we see Him coming
V ictorious in the sky
W e’ll run the race with gratitude
eX alting God most high
Y es, there will be good times and yes some will be bad, but…
Z ion waits in glory…where none are ever sad!

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO A CHRISTMAS PARTY

GUEST OF HONOR: Jesus Christ

DATE: Every day. Traditionally, December 25, but He’s always around, so the date is flexible.

TIME: Whenever you’re ready. Please don’t be too late though, or you’ll miss out on all the fun.

PLACE: In your heart. He’ll meet you there–you’ll hear Him knock.

ATTIRE: Come as you are. Grubbies are okay as He’ll be washing our clothes anyway. He said something about new white robes and crowns for everyone who stays till the last.

TICKETS: Admission is free. He’s already paid for everyone. He says you wouldn’t have been able to afford it-it’s cost Him everything He had!

Like you, I often take a look around the net for other websites that might have something I can use in in my own Youth Ministry.

Recently while researching for ideas related to doing a “Survivor” type event for children I came across this site:
Youth Ministry ( <– click this link to take a look)

The site belongs to Steve Blanchard and his goal is similar to mine, to keep having fresh ideas and to share them with other youth leaders! He’s been in youth ministry almost 9 years so he has the experience and wisdom to help you with your own youth ministry!

Christmas is just around the corner… Have you prepared for your children Christmas Party yet?

If you don’t get things moving well in advance, instead of enjoying the Christmas Vacation with the children, you could end up being totally stressed and miss valuable opportunities to impact their lives and those of their friends and families.

So here’s a Children’s Christmas Planning Checklist… (FIRST DRAFT – IDEAS WELCOME for improvement)

Form a Christmas Party planning committee

  • Who needs to be involved in the planning for the Christmas Party? (i.e. parents, youth workers, children, pastoral staff, others?)

A Rose

Activity
1. Pass around a beautiful rose, with the thorns still intact, to the children. Talk about how fragrant and pleasing it is.

2. Next bruise some of the rose petals and point out the thorns. Jesus Body was bruised for our iniquities and a crown of thorns was placed on his head.

3. Now Enlist someone to be a timekeeper and someone to take the rose and see how fast he/she can pull all the petals off the rose. (Make this into a fun contest). At the end of the “race” announce the time it took
