Top Ten Posts From 2011 . . .

2011 was a busy year for About the Children's Department . . . I began the year with my Top Ten VBS for 2011 reviews and side-by-side comparison chart and focused the month of January on VBS . . . just as I am again this year. Last Spring I released my Sunday School Curriculum reviews with a side-by-side comparison chart and then in June I released my children's church and mid-week curriculum reviews with side-by-side comparison charts. I've posted about recruiting, training and appreciating volunteers and spent the month of April looking at safety in the children's ministry. Each month I focused on a specific ministry you could involve the children in your ministry with to "Put Feet to Their Faith" and shared about children's ministries from around the world.

So . . . which posts were the ones you all read the most? Well, my top posts are . . . 
  1. Top VBS for 2011 - Inside-Out and Upside-Down on Main Street by Standard Publishing
  2. 2011 VBS Side-by-Side Comparison Chart
