What if we understood our church education programs as actually shaping and forming behavior, or ways of living as the body of Christ? How would that change our understanding our our education process? Or, in another way -- do we actually expect that what we teach and believe makes a difference in how someone acts and interacts in daily life?
Think about life goals for your children's programs. This could be norms of behavior in the group, but also outside of the group. Discuss with children ways to act and interact and react with others that fits with being a follower of Jesus. Try asking about the ways that God wants us to live and help kids understand how that might affect their own lives.
Remember, church prepares us for God's ministry in the world. Help those in your education and formation groups to keep applying the lessons from Sunday morning to all the hours that follow during the week.
