I just wanted to take a moment to share my gratitude with and for the children’s ministry at Skyline Church. This church is the real deal. Speaking of the children, the children’s ministry is so much more than a glorified babysitting service. I have been to church services before where the kids are taken care of, but don’t really walk away with anything of any substance.
At Skyline Church, I love the age-appropriate songs and lessons taught each and every week. From my youngest (four years old) to my oldest (eleven years old) there is something for everyone. It isn’t dull and boring either. They come home singing songs, and telling me about what they learned in class. At the end of the service when we come to pick them up, they never want to leave. They look forward to the songs, music, message, and any other fun games and/or crafts. It would seem like a delicate balance of learning with fun, but it really makes me thankful to be in a place that has found and gotten really good at that delicate balance.
To anyone involved in making the children’s ministry a reality, please know that what you are doing has (lasting) impact, and is much appreciated – from the children and parents alike. I know my children join me in saying thank you for all you do!
