Preteen Ministry Blog

I just started a new blog today, called Preteen Ministry. Really original title, I know. Anyway, it's mainly for our Underground Programming Team, so that we can share ideas, and store curriculum for our kids in the future. However, I hope it might grow to be a resource for other people in preteen ministry. There are some great youth ministry sites out there, but I've had a hard time finding things that aren't too mature or too "childish" for our extremely cool, but hopefully still quite innocent, preteens.
When I look for video clips, I don't want to have to weed through the rated R movies, or even the PG-13 movies that I'm leery of endorsing. But I don't want to always be showing Disney or Pixar movies. I've found some great ones, but the kids will soon be tired of Lord of the Rings and Narnia. I wish I didn't feel so awkward showing Harry Potter: there are some great things there, but some parents might flinch.
