I have recently taken a position at our church in our children's ministry. I have been doing preschool, but will be moving up to help our 3-5th grade group. I also will be a part of revamping how we teach and what we teach in an "emerging" sort of church. I was talking to a couple of the teachers and they said that our 3-5th grade group is "bored". I worked with this age group years ago in an afterschool program, but it wasn't "church". They don't like worship, crafts etc. Does anyone have any experience with this age? Do you have any ideas for "lighting" a spark? I would love to think out of the box here. They love music videos, games, etc. I would really like to see our program change in a way that these kids don't want to miss coming. Any suggestions?!
