Growing Children’s Ministry During a Pandemic: A Conversation with a Sunday School Teacher and Parent (New CERC Kids Instagram Account!)
Posted on 3 Jul 2021 by CERC
During the pandemic, instead of our Children’s ministry shrinking in size, our Children’s ministry grew to accommodate more kids than before. We are thankful to God and thankful to the parents and teachers for their hard work and passion for the children.
We love that they hold on to high quality and theologically solid teaching even though it has been much harder to execute in a VIRTUAL Sunday School setting (just imagine 30 kids on Zoom -sweats-) because ultimately, these teachers and parents are convicted that it is their duty to serve these little ones so that they may come to know the worth of Jesus Christ.
Here is a video where Emma, the head of CERC Sunday School, shared her experience and the secret sauce ministering to both the kids and parents. Oh, did we mention that one of our parents joined the conversation too? She shared about how Sunday School has helped her to minister to her kids (Parents, you wouldn’t want to miss this out!).
P/S: New CERC Kids’ Instagram account and more YouTube plans are up next! Stay tuned.
