Learning how to start more children's classes

Here is a succinct but telling report from Fairfax, VA (A) describing some of the insights gained about starting children’s classes. The friends are drawing from not only their own experience, but also from the experience of other clusters.

We have had an increase in the number of our children’s classes due to the initiative taken by our parents in starting classes for their own children and the children of their neighbors. We have also learned that when someone declares their belief in Baha’u’llah, it is important to start an informal Ruhi Book 1 study circle with them immediately. Without this component, it is very challenging to reconnect with the new believer and start children’s classes for their children. After reading all the good news from other clusters and learning from their experiences, we are going to implement this approach in our cluster.
