To make this mapping the most effective for you bring the following:
Hard copy – Sustainable Children’s Ministry book resource
Hard copy – List & date of each event which happens at your church (Aug-June)… even if just the ’round about’ dates
Hard copy – Local school calendar for next school year
Hard copy – Last year’s calendar of your events/life
Hard copy – College football calendar (Michigan/MSU & others important to your people)
Last year’s calendar
Mechanical pencils
Begin praying about your focus for ministry for next year…a dream for programming….a dream for a pathway for discipleship to incorporate…your scriptural or skill focus for the next year (for example: Parenting Education, Faith Milestones, Bible skills, Generosity, Missions, Leadership, etc.) Pick one.
