Hitch your wagon

In my last post about family ministry I said there were seven primary options.

As a reminder, the first two options were...

#1 - Traditional Sunday morning Sunday School consisting of an up-the-font children's talk followed by small groups.

#2 - Do a "family friendly" service on Sunday afternoon/evening, either starting or ending with dinner, with a similar look and feel of Sunday morning.

As promised, here's why I believe the two most common avenues for family ministry shouldn't be mixed.

Frankly, I think a church needs to hitch it's wagon to one plan and commit to it. Select one timeslot at the expense of the other.
Pick one, even if it does not fit the exact needs of everyone.

But choose one so people are sure what you're offering and putting your best efforts into.
