Creative Sunday school ideas 4 kids: FREE: Children's sermons
Children's talk for Valentines Day (click link for full story)- Explain to the children a bit about Bishop Valentine and how we went about showing practical love to others in need. The heart reminds of his heart of love for others. Asking the children to look around the church and see if there are any other great symbols that remind us of God's love. Hopefully one of the children will point to a cross. Hold up a Valentine heart and a Cross and explain how the cross reminds us that Jesus loved us so much he was willing to die for us.
The Transfiguration - Listen to Jesus! Here is a simple interactive lesson about listening to Jesus. Have everyone in the congregation call out at once some advise to the chilldren. (Have some fun with this) It will be a chaotic noise. Ask the children what it sounded like. Discuss with the children the many different voices and messages calling out to us. Explain how the most important voice to listen to is the voice of Jesus (found in the bible, through prayer etc. )
Epiphany - The Baptism of Jesus This is a simple spontaneous drama involving the children. Fun and instructive.
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.---
--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.
