C4P 18: Team Player
Bible Passage: Matthew 10:13-16
Advocating for our child who has challenges as they struggle to fit in children’s ministry can sometimes be agonizing. There are many things to consider and today we want to help you develop some strategies.
Remember that you are part of the TEAM
The child is the priority
What is helpful for this setting?
Remember that your child is emerging and expect progress
Share good character traits as well as trigger/struggle points
Give ideas of what has helped in the past but be open to new strategies
Have an attitude of gratitude
Pray for your child, the leaders, and the other children regularly
Consider a small thank you gift
Always give grace
