5 Ways to Handle Low Summer Church Attendance

Tony Kummer has some great advice on how to handle low summer attendance at church. Tony’s tips were directed towards children’s ministers, but I think they are great tips for all of us in churches.

  1. Give thanks to God for those who have come.
  2. Pray for those who are absent.
  3. Remember that every child [person] matters to God.
  4. Take advantage of the smaller crowd to build relationships.
  5. Keep working hard and trust God to bring in the numbers.

Be sure to visit Tony’s blog and read the full post.
