How do you deal with non-SDA members that don't show up for most meetings? Do you give them the work when they do show up and expect them to finish it or just let it drop?

I just give them the work we have lined up for that day and let them decide if they will make up missed work. If they want to be invested, they will do the work. I don't make a big deal of it. A lot of kids who are infrequent attenders have issues they are dealing with. I don't see making Pathfinders unpleasant for them with nagging.

I agree. I don't think that Pathfinders should be made a burden, or else it just drives the already shaky members (and some strong ones) away. It shouldn't be made easy, and the kids should be encouraged to strive for investiture. And it should also not be pushed on them. If they want it, it should be accessible, but not forced on them.

I have another question about when kids don't come to meetings. Other than the worksheets that were part of the class, how much information to you give to the kids that missed an honor presentation??? Do you copy off the answers and give to them?

Also when starting an honor, I know that sometimes you don't finish it that same day in class, this is very understandable with Arts & Crafts. Do you only work on the honor in class or send it home to be finished there and move on to the next honor at the next class.
Our club has meetings twice a month, only on Sabbath afternoons.
