Piggy Production: Jesus Walks on Water

Piggy Production: Jesus Walks on Water

We love when kids get involved in the work of the church.  Starting a few years back, we regularly began incorporating kids in key roles such as worship team, greeters, taking attendance and helping with audio visual things.   We even take things to the next level once a year and have them serve in the adult service with Kids' Sunday. A few of our girls decided they would go even further and make their own video for an upcoming lesson.  They made tiny pigs out of playdough and produced an … [Read more...]

A Pirate Fairy and a God Who Saves

We've been going through the God in Action Vacation Bible School curriculum on Wednesday nights.  It's a super great program and even though our church doesn't officially do VBS any more, I love to use these types of curriculum for the great theme and coordinating games and crafts. The kids have been loving the God in Action series. This week's theme was God SAVES.  It focused on John 3:16 and emphasized that God would do whatever it takes to save us and restore the relationship that sin … [Read more...]

Kids’ Sunday: The Day We Give the Service to the Kids

Kids’ Sunday: The Day We Give the Service to the Kids

Kids stood at the front door, proudly pushing it open with all their might as they saw guests and regular attenders approaching.  The push handle hovered right at their eye level, but that didn't stop these kids from performing an important job.  They opened the door and shook hands with those who entered the church that day. Not only were kids serving as greeters, but they were standing outside the sanctuary doors, passing out bulletins as well.  In fact, it seemed like kids had taken … [Read more...]

We recently finished a series on the Catechism for Boys and Girls using the Great Commission Kids' Quest curriculum.  It was a great set of lessons for us and it could be a terrific resource for parents as well.  We adapted a few of the lessons and added games and crafts, so you should be able to find something for almost any age group. Check out our first set of 13 lessons in this Round Up!  Click on the picture or link below for more details on the lessons. Question #1 Who Made … [Read more...]
