Join Patty Burns and Belinda Stroud, state missionaries for preschool and children’s ministries, as they lead a discussion about the “new normal” in this area. Topics include children’s ministry in a socially distanced world, how to provide a clean and safe environment for children and preschoolers, ways to involve children in your worship service, and many other great ideas on how your church can minister to and disciple children, preschoolers and their families.
