Guest Jeri kicked off this subject many years ago, but it's a reoccurring one in most Sunday Schools, even in Rotation! As has often been noted: "children don't drive themselves."
Your insights and advice are welcome whether you are using Rotation or not.
CHILDREN ARRIVING EARLY
Our workshops are supposed to start at 9:30 --but we have children arriving anywhere from 9:15 - 9:30.
Does anyone have any activities or suggestions for the kids when they first get there? We don't like the idea of the children just standing around waiting for their shepherd or teacher, and it doesn't look too inviting for new members and the kids want to start running.
Would you believe we can't find anyone who would like to volunteer as a greeter just to say "hi" to the kids? Any ideas would be appreciated.
