This past Sunday we explored why saying “thank you” goes well beyond mere manners.
Saying “thank you” is a way we recognize that someone has helped us, that they care about us, and we care about them, too. So — Thank You. This ministry wouldn’t be what it is without you.
Now, something to ponder —
The power of “thank you” is one of the most important things I can help instill in your children.
What lessons, ideals, and attitudes do you most want your church to help you foster in your children?
Be as specific as you can. Your responses truly help shape what we do here.
As to how we shape environments for children to explore and internalize those lessons/ideals/attitudes, two follow-ups . . .
Are any of you fairly adept at maintaining plants and even small, aquarium or cage-size animals?
(We’re considering a class on the importance of nurture. An animal/plant “expert” wouldn’t necessarily have to be a teacher, just someone who could help us with plant/animal well-being.)
Is there anyone out there with knowledge about model trains and train layouts?
Ponder away, and let me know.
