Here at Hope 4 Hurting Kids, we strive to resource individuals who work with kids to help the hurting children in their lives. Those adults include parents, grandparent, other relatives, teachers, coaches and many others who have the ability to influence the course of a child’s life. Another important group are the dedicated men and women who work with kids week in and week out at churches all over the world. Sunday Morning Strategies is a series for those children’s pastors and children’s ministry workers to help equip them to serve children from disrupted families more effectively.
It’s easy to talk to churches about starting programs like Divorce Care 4 Kids or The Big D or referring teens to sites like I Am A Child of Divorce, but one of the biggest questions we get asked by people who work in children’s ministry regularly is:
What can I do on a Sunday morning to help these kids?
People who work with kids have some of the most tender hearts I have ever encountered. I have been blessed to work with these people week in and week out for years now and to meet hundreds of other children’s pastors and children’s ministry workers from around the country and the world. When you talk to these children’s ministry workers about children of divorce they will naturally empathize with them and desire to help them however they can, but many of them just do not know how or what to do.
