Youth groups, especially the younger members, may not yet understand all the finer points of what a fundraiser is for, but this is a good opportunity to teach them, especially since many church fundraising ideas will go to benefit the youth group in one way or another. The kids need to understand that all the different things they enjoy about church don't come for free, and that a church fundraiser can be a fantastic way for them to contribute to the community and learn the Christian spirit of helping each other out.
A church youth group can learn so many things from being part of a church fundraiser. It gives them a chance to really bond as a team in the context of a project that will help the entire church. This will give them a great sense of pride, and will strengthen them as a group. By getting out and about in the community they will also learn about being a part of something larger than themselves, and reaching out for assistance at the same time as providing assistance, which is pretty much what church fundraisers are all about.
If you get your youth group involved in as the sales team for your church fundraiser, this is a great way to send your best ambassadors out into the community and make the people aware of the future of your church and where you see it heading. Youth groups are the epitome of Christian strength, energy, and values, and your church fundraiser is a fantastic opportunity to let the community see what great things the church does for these kids, and remind them that it wouldn't be possible without their continued support.
