Wintertime is an excellent time to plan a children’s church activity for your students. Planning a field trip for your Sunday school class or children’s church class is a way to motivate and stimulate your students to reach out to others as well as to enhance attendance as they prepare for their trip.
Children’s Church Activity – Plan A Field Trip
Tell students and parents at least a month in advance that your class will be taking a field trip, and teach a little more each week about what you will be doing.
For example, plan a visit to a nursing home for students to visit with the elderly, and talk to them each week about what to expect and the importance of respecting the elderly. This project will take significant work, because you will have to get permission slips signed by all parents before students can be allowed to participate. You will also have to contact the site you wish to visit before you introduce the project to the parents and students to make the necessary contacts and see how your students can help enrich the lives of the people they visit.
