Welcome to day five of the Spring Into Summer series! This week we will be focusing mostly on how you can make your summer travels less stressful and more organized. Be sure to enter the giveaways for Sugar and Spice and The Trip Clip!

Before I start talking about summer travels, I want to share some summer ministry ideas you can do with your children. 

As a mom of young ones, I know this time in their lives is a prime time to teach them the joy of serving others! 

The kids and I have talked about Philippians 2:3-4: “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

How can we carry this out in real life? God is the one who puts love for others into our hearts, yet there are many ways we can put words into action. And the beautiful summer weather can work to our advantage and give us many opportunities for ministry. Some things we have done or will do with our kids:

  • Pick weeds in a neighbor’s garden
  • Mow the lawn of an older friend or family member – for free!
  • Donate extra produce from our garden to the local food pantry
  • Raise money at our garage sale for a Christian organization (see photo)
  • Bring a bouquet of flowers from our garden to a friend
  • Invite and bring neighborhood kids to Vacation Bible School

Our oldest at our garage sale, selling water and donating the money
for the work of Samaritan’s Purse
in Minot, ND, after the town flooded last spring.

How do you get your children involved in ministry {summer or otherwise}?

  1. We participate throughout the year with the local Food Bank, give friends a break by having all the kiddos over for an afternoon, clean the church quarterly, and anything else that comes our way! :) Great post and great ideas for more outreaching!

  2. These are great ideas. Helps me to start thinking of what I can do to incorporate ministry in the life of my 3 year old. I’d love to have you link this up to Titus 2 Tuesday on Cornerstone Confessions tomorrow. Thanks again for the tips.
