At our most recent Sunday@6 service I mentioned that there are a few simple but important roles that are ideal for youth to take on if they’re wanting to serve at church. The obvious ones in my mind are reading the bible, hospitality and praying for people (either up front or in prayer ministry).
I was encouraged that multiple people responded and signed up for bible reading and prayer.
If your kids are keen to serve Jesus and are looking for a way in, a simple role like these can be a great start.
Please here me clearly, Sunday services are not the only place a person can serve Jesus (we can do that pretty much anywhere) and I do believe that youth are able to serve in roles that hold more responsibility. I mention these examples because they are central activities to being a Christian and they are easy to get started on.
If you’re finding it challenging to talk to your kids about this sort of thing, don’t be afraid to get in touch and we’ll see if we can help you out.
