Here’s my question: in our small church we have less than 10 kids attending on a regular basis. For the past 9 years, my two older girls have been in the same class. We are trying a year-long experiment where one (and maybe two) of the two youth who attend regularly are going to mentor the three middle-school kids (three attend regularly, others may join on occasion), with an adult advisor, of course. And, the youth will not have to do this every Sunday.
But, as we begin talking about this, and with the Potter story coming to a conclusion (and don’t tell me what it is because I have FINALLY been struck by the bug and am trying to get through books 4-7 very shortly), I wondered aloud if we might use this as a vehicle for discussion with the kids (as all three who attend regularly are devoted to all things Potter).
I saw a note on the UUWorld site about a UU church that did a camp and I’ll try to contact them, but I wonder if anyone else has used this vehicle with their middle-school kids? Thanks!
