Hundreds of children’s ministry leaders face these same questions every week. They work incredibly hard to minister effectively to the children who arrive at their doors. They face the challenging prospect of not knowing how many children might show up (two or 25?), along with the even bigger challenge of meeting their needs – when the children are all over the age spectrum.

Prayer habits that last a lifetime are most often formed while they are children. This is why it’s so critical to teach children how to pray. As with most disciplines, prayer is caught more than it’s taught. Please take time, develop a lesson simply teaching your children how to pray.

When you create a fun and educational environment, children will respond positively. Steps to Start your Puppet Ministry Prayerful consider using puppets in your […]
