Children's Sermons - (Bible /Gospel based fun object lessons for Children's church or Sunday School
Creative Sunday school ideas 4 kids: FREE: Children's sermons
July 19 2015 -Mark 6:30-34 Sheep without a Shepherd - Simple spontaneous drama: Have the children pretend to be sheep without a shepherd (going astray, bumping into each other, etc) Then show how a good shepherd protects the sheep and leads them to good pasture.
July 5th - Mark 6:1-13 The Apostles message of repentance -(This might fit) or I might go with the first part of the text - that Jesus knew what it was like to be rejected by his friends. I might arrange for people to represent Jesus' "friends" in Nazareth his home town. I'll dramatize Jesus being rejected and insulted and use that as a lead in to the idea that Jesus knows what it is like to be rejected. When we have people make fun of us we can know that Jesus understands and cares. (See Jesus rejected at Nazareth )
Devotions / Kids talk for Youth Group, Sunday school, or Children's Church -
Sunday School Teachers: Great ideas and illustrations for anyone involved in ministry to children.---
-Even the wind and the waves obey Him -Jesus calms the Storm (get the congregation to be the wind and the waves. Show how Jesus calmed the storm)
--Christ Centered / Evangelical - focusing on the Gospel as "Good News." -
Designed primarily for the short "Children's Focus" during Sunday Morning worship, these Children's sermons can be used in a variety of ways: An introduction to a Sunday School lesson, for Children's Church /Chapel, Youth Group or Kids club, etc. I trust these Christian sermons for Children will be a great resource for Pastors and Sunday School teachers. Blessings, Pastor Andrew -- Any feed back would be much appreciated! revhewlett(at) gmail (dot) com
- Biblical - Present good theology even if it's in a simplified form.
- Fun - Avoid the "O brother, here comes the boring message" reaction.
- Interactive - That's how kids learn. It's best when they use all the senses. I try to involve the congregation too.
Christ centered - Most of these stories are focused on Jesus and the love of God.
- Short - Most children have a short attention span. (Sunday school teachers know this well)
My prayer is the someday soon this web site would be a great, FREE resourse for children's sermons and Sunday school
Whether one is Anglican (Episcopal), Baptist, Catholic, Evangelical or Penticostal - children need to hear the gospel presented in a lively and biblical way.
Tips for making a good children's talk or Kids Bible lessons for the Sunday Church Service:
It should be a Biblical children's story: The theology for the Sunday Morning Kids Story doesn't need to be sophisticated but it does need to be Biblical. Keep it simple but keep it scriptural.
It should be an Interactive children's message. Don't preach to the children. Involve them in the learning experience.
It should be a short children's message. Most kids have a very short attention span. Don't let them get bored. Otherwise, the main thing they will learn is that church is boring. I would keep it under 5 minutes.
It should clearly present some aspect of the Gospel. If you get too abstract most kids will miss the point. Keep the thought progression simple.
It should be a FUN children's message. Ideally the children should look forward to this time in the service.
It should be a "risk free" children's message: Protect the kids from being embarrassed in front of the congregation.
