One of our adult leaders called me last week to let me know what a fabulous job the student leader working with her was doing. So, I wanted to acknowledge the student leader’s service with a personal note. Here’s an edited version of what I wrote:
Dear [Student Leader},
I wanted to let you know how wonderful it is to have you serve as a student leader in [Children’s Ministry]. I’ve heard how great you are with the children – how you welcome them, help them get settled, how you make them laugh and how helpful you are to [the adult in charge].
Keep up the good work. Serving as a student leader is a big responsibility. When children come to church, it is our opportunity to share God’s love with them. That opportunity is a gift from God, one that is very important and one that we must take very seriously.
You are doing a fabulous job of sharing Jesus with the [children] and we are blessed to have you on our team. You are awesome!
Do you have students serving in your ministry? How can you encourage them this week?
