If you want to display specific information with monklets, such as all Events matching a Category or People in a Group, you can use "Inline Parameters." Common parameters are "find_category" or "find_group".

The slug is the name without any spaces or special characters, so the slug for "Children's Ministry" would be "childrens-ministry". If you're ever not sure what the slug would be, you can use this handy slug creator.

Now that the "Family" category parameter has been added, the next upcoming event that is categorized by "Family" is displaying in the sidebar:

Additionally, you can use multiple categories, groups, etc. within a single inline parameter; you would just separate each one with a comma.
