Our church is considering recognizing the birthdays of all our members, not just those over the age of 70. Do other church Administrative Assistants have experience with this and/or suggestions about how to proceed? Some ideas I've received so far include publishing a perpetual birthday calendar or showing a brief slideshow before the service begins to show the upcoming birthdays for the week (no ages will be shown). A simpler option would be to have the birthdays listed in the bulletin the week prior.
Not everyone approaches birthdays with unbridled joy, and others may feel uncomfortable with the extra attention. We wish to build fellowship within our congregation but not make anyone uncomfortable or nervous. Ideas?
