It makes a huge impact to learn from pastors in other churches. That is what I am doing with this board (The Network Forum) ...learning from other folks in different churches. I have learned more on this board than I have probably learned in my 15 years of directing children's ministry.

Here are a bunch of ideas for Father's Day! Not only will you find new ways to appreciate dads, but also ideas for teaching who really is the World's #1 Dad!

Dad Jokes:
Three boys are in the schoolyard bragging about their fathers. The first boy says, "My Dad Scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50." The second boy says, "That's nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100. "The third boy says, "I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon. And it takes eight people to collect all the money!"

Or remember the 3-year-old who prayed, "Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name. Amen"
