As awesome as I think I am, I cannot do this alone. Volunteer leaders are the backbone of everything we do in Junior High ministry.
Last Friday night we had the opportunity to celebrate Christmas and show our volunteers how much we value them. We catered food, played LudaChristmas White Elephant Mayhem, and gave each volunteer a Krochet Kids beanie. If you are unfamiliar with Krochet Kids, you really should check them out. In fact, our party made the front page of their website!
Valuing our volunteers must go well beyond good food and gifts though. We are working hard at creating a community of volunteers who love being together, are serving together, and are honestly seeking God together. That is the community that will make the greatest impact on junior ministry.
So if you are a current volunteer, thank you. If you are looking for a place to serve, find a junior high ministry!
