Okay, okay, you got me!  I don’t really mean to throw away your curriculum (that’s a real budget-buster!).  However, I would encourage you to put it on the shelf for week or two.  Check out what happened to me when I tried it.

Shake It Up!

We’ve been using Promiseland 5-G curriculum in our Children’s Church program for awhile now.  We bought a ton of it as it was going out of print (clearance!).  However, for Labor Day, I decided to shake things up a bit and grab a lesson off Tony’s site, Ministry to Children.  The lesson was simple to prepare and included a few elements that were new for our kids.   I have to tell you, it put such a new energy into our group!  Not only for the kids but for me as well.  I usually always teach the 2nd service Children’s Church with teachers rotating in the 1st service class.  Apparently, I gotten so used to the Promiseland format, that it wasn’t exciting for me (or the kids) anymore.  I had such fun presenting this new lesson and it really stuck with the kids.  So, I would encourage you to do the same.  Take a break from your current curriculum, even if it’s just for a week or two!  Try some of these great Fill-in curriculum ideas here or try Molly Pickens, which was a big hit with our kids.
