As I write the articles for the blog and the information for the website, I am writing for a large group, a diverse group, of people but ultimately all with one common purpose, reaching children for Jesus.
It can be difficult at times because I may never know the impact of the articles, just like we may never know the impact our lessons have on the children.
The one difference… with the blog and web site, there is not that direct, immediate interaction – yes, you can be engaged and interact via comments and participating in the CommanderBill.net community (which I encourage) – during large group time, you should be engaging the children and getting direct, immediate response and feedback. Ask questions during large group time. Have the children participate by having them act out accounts from the Bible or other scenarios. Engage the children with your teaching.
What are some ways you engage the clubbers during large group time?
