Outreach

Many families these days allow their children to set the schedule for the entire family.  Soccer games, gymnastics, basketball practice, dancing, baseball games, piano recitals, and on and on.  Some of these activities demand participation seven days a week.  With such busy schedules, it is tempting to skip Sunday School and or church.  As Christian teachers, we should encourage children to attend a Preschool or Children's Ministry Sunday School class and church on a regular basis.  Here are a few ideas you can use to let the children know you care.

Send a Birthday Card.  Everyone likes to be remembered on their birthday.
Have a celebration.  Set a goal for the class and celebrate when they achieve the goal.  For example, Challenge every student to memorize The Lord's Prayer.  If every student does it, celebrate with a special snack or a pizza party during the regular Sunday School hour.  Encourage them to bring a friend.
Send a refrigerator picture.  Take individual pictures of each student.  Paste the picture on a paper frame, glue a magnet to the back, and mail it to the child. 
Send a Christmas Card.  Take a class picture and send the picture with the Christmas Card.
Send a Coded Message.  Select a Coded Message that relates to the lesson for the coming Sunday.  Mail it to the student and offer a reward for any student that brings the correct answer to class.
Send a Valentine's Card.  Cut out a card in the shape of a heart.  Write the following on the card:  "Roses are red.  Violets are blue.  Someone loves you.  Here's a clue.  Read John 3:16."  Mail the card to the child.
Send a puzzle.  Print a picture from the Clip Art.  Cut the picture into four or five pieces.  Ask the student to put the puzzle together and bring it to class.  Preschoolers enjoy telling about their pictures.  Consider sending a different picture to each child.
