5th and 6th Grade Ministry bites the dust

Last night we were told the 5th and 6th ministry was going to be split up. The 5th graders were going to remain in Children’s ministry and probably be combined with the 4th graders for their own service. The 6th graders were going to be added to the Junior High ministry. For those of us who have seen the impact of a ministry targeted at “tweeners” can accomplish this was quite a letdown. Although I could volunteer for the student or children’s ministry, my heart is not in it. I would just be another warm body.
