Sunday Snapshot: What’s Next?

Sunday Snapshot: What’s Next?

Here's a quick snapshot of something we used on a Sunday recently.  This is the agenda for our Children's Church program.  It helps me stay on track and many of the kids appreciate knowing "What's Next". We write in multiple colors because I hear that helps visual learners.  Also, I have the kids erase the tasks as we complete them (I always say: "I'm looking for someone sitting still and straight to erase the board") and this keeps the kids engaged as well. How About You? How do you … [Read more...]

Here's a closer view of a few pictures: I Can Serve God by … [Read more...]

Sunday Snapshot: The Big Circle Timeline

Sunday Snapshot: The Big Circle Timeline

In our children's church program (ages 4-9), we've been using The Gospel Project curriculum.   It seems to be a big hit with the teachers (I know I love it) and we have had a number of people comment on the big circle timeline we have posted outside the classroom. We wanted to use it as a tool for parents, not only to give them a picture of the "Big God Story", but also to quickly let them see where we were at in Children's Church. We started using the "This Week" arrow to show … [Read more...]
