This issue of Reaching Rural America for Christ discusses the things congregations should prayerfully consider when starting a midweek children’s ministry.
It is vital to develop a strategic plan and determine how such a ministry fits into the overall mission and ministry of the congregation. It is also beneficial to find opportunities to partner with someone who has expertise in this area.
