  • Meeting outside of church makes it more welcoming to new people.  Keep all ages together, which makes new families comfortable.

  • Keep it simple!  

  • Make it interactive (think Children's Time).

  • Share leadership before with planning and during with leading.  

  • Develop an opening and closing ritual.

  • Be brave and go for it.
