So... this week at my Merced church I'm starting something brand new. I've created these collectors cards that people can collect when they come to church each week. This first month are 5 Bible Characters that begin with the letter J.
We've a great welcome desk at church, and they can be found there. But you have to have a gold coin to get one. Sabbath School teachers, church Elders, and Pathfinder leaders etc will have gold coins to share - the kids (or adults) just have to find who and where. Then with the gold coin, off they go to get a random card of the month.
I'm not sure what the prize will be of getting 10 full sets, but there will be something to celebrate the achievement!
In the meantime, it's just another way for kids to connect with adults in church, and have some fun doing it.
