Introducing Kids to Jesus*

The most important and awesome responsibility that we have in our work with children is building kids to be like Jesus. But, many of us are unsure of how to do that or afraid that we might do it wrong. In this workshop we will explore ways to make the abstract concepts of our faith come alive for young children. You will practice sharing the good news in ways that kids can understand, apply and personalize.
