#kidmin #childrensministry #sundayschool #childrenschurch In 2019, my mentor shared a personal, childhood story about a trip to the amusement park with her father. It was a moving story of how they had gotten stuck on a ferris wheel, and ended up having to climb down....how it ruined her view of the fun they were supposed to have that day...and how they ultimately had to "start over" and begin their day again.

#kidmin #childrensministry #sundayschool #dowelrods #puppetry #blacklights #childrenschurch Hey Everyone! Sorry that I'm getting this post out so late this weekend. What a crazy week I've had! :D I was thinking about what to discuss that may be beneficial to you all, and I came across some older videos that we've had for some time.
