Recognition Service

Time to Celebrate!

With the end of the school year approaching, it is time to begin planning and organizing an annual recognition service.

Ideas for Recognition Services

It’s time to recognize your kids! Need some ideas?

Planning an End-of-Year Recognition Service

By now, the year-end countdown is on and you and your children are looking forward to a different pace and a much-needed break. Before the schedule shifts for the summer, celebrate all you have learned together with an unbeatable recognition service.

Where Do I Start?

“If I knew where to begin, I would have already started!”

I've Never Planned a Recognition Service! Now What?

I know who you are. I talk to someone just like you several times during spring recognition season.

There Are 5 Seasons?

In elementary school, I learned there are 4 seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter.

Working on the national WMU staff, I learned there are actually 5 seasons. You read correctly . . . 5!

Plan a Recognition Service That Celebrates Everyone

I remember recognition services where proud parents beamed as their children’s achievements were celebrated. Little boys squirmed and little girls smiled at the attention from the adults. Where did those days go?

It's Time to Celebrate!

A friend recently gave me a portable disco ball that plugs into a cell phone. I use the disco ball to help those around me celebrate victories of all sizes. Did we survive a deadline? Get out the disco ball. You just had a great phone call from a GA leader? Disco ball time!

Recognize Spiritual Growth

I’m going to reminisce a bit here so please humor me for just a moment. I’ve had the privilege of being a missions leader for a number of years. In years past, I served as GA director in my church.

A Little Recognition Never Hurts

Around this time of the year, missions education organizations begin preparing for their annual recognition services. These special services provide opportunities to recognize the accomplishments of boys and girls who have worked hard all year long.
