    Those are great articles…
    Some things that we are looking to learn about are:

    Teaching the older children to be leaders themselves
    Becoming organized in ministry (with schedules, the rooms, with supplies, all of the above)
    Doing a vbs in a small church with limited resources
    Getting Volunteers

    Awesome! I’m pretty sure I read the reverse lock in at least 10x just yesterday alone ??
    My suggestions are:

    1. Tips for running small groups/large group more effectively.

    2. Organizing yourself as a CP

      Same as someone above. How to get kids envolved in worship. Mine seem to just stand there.

      Also, mine have a hard time participating in prayer stations.

        Worship can be a tough one to sell on some kids, especially older boys. Sometimes they can feel that worship is just for girls or not cool. Several of the ways I have gotten more participation are as follows: 1. Getting the leaders/volunteers excited about worship, and having them lead by example (especially important to get some male leaders doing it if possible). 2. Explaining worship to them/having worship nights. Sometimes kids don’t worship because they don’t understand it. Talk to your kids about why, how, when, and where of worship. Make sure you check out my worship night posts. They have full details on what we have done at our worship nights to engage the kids and teach them more about worship. 3. Start a kids’ worship team with your older kids. Again, make sure you get some of your older boys involved. Set a time once or twice a month where you meet with your kids’ worship team to teach them the worship songs you are planning on doing that month, and take time to talk to them about leadership and what it means to be a leader. Make sure they understand to be a part of the team they must participate, be excited, worship, and have a good attitude on and off the stage. Then put about 3-5 of those kids on the stage behind your teen/adult leadership to help lead worship. Kids tend to respond better to worship when they can see their friends on the stage participating in worship. I hope this all helps. As far as the prayer stations are concerned. I am currently doing a 4-week prayer series with my kids on Wednesday nights in January. We are doing some large group worship/teaching then breaking up into smaller groups to go through some prayer stations. I will post about them at the beginning of February.
