This Fridea is both early in the week (because tomorrow is Good Friday) and early enough that you could plan for summer.
I’m sure I’ve blogged along these lines in the past, but there’s a simple focus I want to give today: What if your whole ministry went through the same book/devotional/something over the summer?
Whether it’s something your ministry produces or just a great Christian book or sermon series or video series… what if everyone (who opted in, obviously) was doing the same thing? Heck, you could even attack something off the fiction shelf (Chronicles of Narnia comes to mind, but there are plenty of options). Or a handful of books, like one per month.
There are plenty of ways to springboard off this idea, as well as plenty of ways to maximize it (a weekly discussion maybe?). You know your ministry. But whatever you do, knowing that everyone’s doing this at the very least brings your students back more unified than they were before summer break. How often can you say that?
