Facebook Live with Dr. Michael Hernandez recorded March 17, 2020. It’s a challenging time for those who care for kids. How do we talk to them about the current global health crisis, address their fears, and ease their anxieties? In this video, we discuss “Talking to Kids About Coronavirus.” as well as some best practices for those who serve kids in the church.
Watch our April 7th Facebook Live featuring an interview with children’s pastors Leslie Green and Joy Hensley, as they discuss tools and strategies that children’s ministers are utilizing to keep connected with their kids during the COVID-19 pandemic, some pitfalls to avoid when using technology for kidmin, and share ideas for serving families on Easter Sunday.
While you are helping keep families connected to church, we can help you keep families connected with Scripture through at home discipleship every day.
