Guidelines for Youth Story

By Linda Muller
The youth story is an important part of our worship.
— It should be Spirit led.
— Aim for 3-5 minutes in length (any longer
takes away from other portions of our worship).
— Be ready to customize it for the age group
present that particular week.
— Remember that children under the age of 10-
12 are not likely to understand symbolism.
— If you can include props or pictures it is
likely to be more engaging.
— Get close to the group, look up at the group
and speak loudly and clearly.
— Don’t let these guidelines trounce your
creative energy.
Thank you for keeping this in mind,
— on behalf of M & C and our Youth Pastor
