As the end of the summer approaches, kids start thinking about the changes ahead. Entering a new grade, attending a different school, making friends and getting to know an unfamiliar teacher are all significant changes in the life of a school aged child. And, depending on the programs offered at church, children may be considering changes that will be happening there too. This week I came across two wonderful ideas for ways that God’s family can encourage those school aged kids this fall.
What ‘Back to School’ ideas for encouraging kids and families have you or will you be trying this fall in your congregation?

I love these ideas, Karen. Thanks for sharing them! I was just thinking last night about how to encourage my kids as one of them is going back to school next week. I was thinking of having a "prayer meal" where everyone has the opportunity to talk about what makes them anxious or sad about going back to school, and what makes them happy or excited about going back to school during dinner, and afterward we take some time to pray about them for each other.
