This past weekend we had our incoming 6th grade Parent meeting at Daybreak Church. We used this time to get to know brand new parents, inform them about our purpose/strategy/programs and offer them help and hope as they enter the crazy years of parenting middle school students!
One idea that we tried that worked pretty well was our Jr. High Ministry “Classy Tour”. Basically we had one of our volunteers show parents what a typical Sunday service would look like for their jr. high students by taking photos of the various elements and putting them up on the screen. It was super funny and the parents loved it. The great part is that it’s super easy to do!
1) Grab a camera
2) Take photos of one of your volunteers engaging in all the activities that would take place during one of your youth ministry services.
That’s it! Like I said, it’s a simple/silly idea, but it was a big hit!
