Why I Love Children?s Ministry

As the Children’s Ministry team prepares to move into a new season, I thought I’d share my “Top 10” list of why I love it so much:
10.  I get to color, paste, cut, and use glitter and stickers!!!!  As part of my job!!!!
9.    Guaranteed to get smiles, hugs and laughter each and every Sunday morning
8.    Where else can you watch an “official” Awana sporting event that involves kids sitting on balloons
??7.    I know every child’s name and they know mine.  I love that.
6.    The cutest babies EVER.
5.    I get to hear the best stories about school, pets, family, friends, super heroes, video games, etc.  I love getting to know each and every child.
4.    I am privileged to work side-by-side with some of the most talented, creative and dedicated volunteers.
3.    UPWARD!
2.    Awesomely supportive parents and co-workers
1.    There is no greater feeling in the world than when a child “gets it” about Jesus’ love for us and our need for salvation.   Watching these kids grow in the Lord each year is the greatest blessing ever.
That’s it.  I love my job.  I wouldn?t trade it for anything.  The kids, co-workers and volunteers that I work with bless my life each and every day, and I am thankful for them all.
