Big Picture

Have you reached out to your clubbers recently? Here are some ideas to try:

  • Each week hand out candy or other types of giveaways in a drive through at the sponsoring church or school. Also provide materials to work on through the week. This gives ongoing contact with the children and their families.
  • Send a weekly email with attached coloring pages, devotional thoughts, Bible puzzles, etc.
  • Challenge teachers to commit to pray for the children for the amount of time they would have been in club.
  • Postcard challenge: Send post cards to each child.
  • Sidewalk chalk challenge: Have children do sidewalk drawings and have their parents share the pictures with you. You could even make it a contest.
  • Make video calls directly with the children and their families.
  • Divide the children into groups. Have your volunteers contact those in their group each week and communicate back and forth with each other.
  • If the club is connected to a church, have the church purchase gift cards (drive-through food) and drop them off to the children and families.
  • Partner with food banks or churches that are distributing food and add something special for the children.
