I don’t want to sing in the Christmas program!

Posted on 12/9/2016 by Greg Yoder

I’ve seen a lot of church Christmas programs. There always seems to be one or two kids who either HATE being in front of people, or they’re so exuberant they can’t contain themselves. These moments are VERY entertaining for those of us watching, but it can be a bit traumatic for you, or more importantly, our kids who (sometimes) become the focus of videos on Facebook. How should we handle this? First, talk to our kids about why they’re doing this. You and I can tell our kids that they’re leading our church in worship. While that might make them nervous, remind them they’re not alone. And, if they DO end up on Facebook, ask your child if it’s okay. If not, ask your friend to remove it.

Suggested Reading: Matthew 21:16
