As our churches fully open and with a majority of adults vaccinated, what is happening with children’s ministry? How are churches handling ministry to children this summer and what are some good ideas for safe, effective ministry to families this summer? Moody Bible Institute Professor Elizabeth Smith has a pulse on children’s ministry and she joined Ken and Deb to share her thoughts on this important ministry in the church.
Rarely do we see children misbehaving on a Facebook feed, but children, like their parents, have their struggles. We address how to deal with those summer meltdowns with parenting expert and author Arlene Pellicane, who talks about strategies to help children with anger management and apology. Listen to hear about these helpful tools for handling those summer scuffles!
