Preparing for Fall

Summer is winding down. Time to gear up for fall. Fall is normally a great time of growth. Families get back in their school routines, people stop traveling, and the summer slump stops slumping (wasn't that profound).

Anyways, back to the point. Most children's ministries have a big weekend push to kick off the fall. We call ours "Back to School Bash." It's happening on Aug.28/29 and we've got to be ready. Our team has to be ready. Our volunteers have to be trained and excited about a new season of ministry.

To prepare, we have the largest training event of our ministry year a couple of weeks before the big weekend. We bring all our volunteers together and pump it up! We have a large group time and then break into specific areas of training.

We call our training event "Accelerate." Here is the logo we are using to promote it through postcards, email invites, posters, etc. What are you doing to get ready for the fall season? Would love to hear your ideas, plans, etc.
