Sunday School Teachers: Great ideas and illustrations for anyone involved in ministry to children.---

Jesus' Authority (Don't have anything for Mark 1 but you could try this idea on the Authority of Jesus from Matthew's Gospel. It's a simple interactive skit that drives home the point that we all need to listen to Jesus because he is the head of the church. 

  Fishers of Men- (Gospel of John or Mark) Try this with young children. Bring a fishing rod and a blanket (for a fishing net) Explain the different ways of fishing, highlighting how fishermen on the see of Galilee would use nets. Get someone to hold the other side of the blanket with you and "catch" (scope) some people into your "net". Explain how we are called to share the good news of Jesus and invite (catch) other people so they will follow him too. You could also make a net by getting the kids to join hands in a line. You could traval around the congregation and catch individuals in your net. This could be fun!

Come and See - Follow me - John 1:43-51 Demonstrate the importance of bringing along other kids to "come and see" what Jesus is all about. Hide some person (or it could be an object) somewhere in the church. Tell the kids about your friend (name, interests, age, etc). They explain how the best way to get to know them is to "come and see" the person. Take the children to the individual and introduce them face to face. Share a paraphrase account of Philip inviting Nathanael to "come and see" Jesus. 

--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  

Note: Stay tuned as I post stories on YouTube -Valuable to God- Gods Love - Secure in God's love- Repentance

These Sermon's for Children are:

  • 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)

Free Childrens Sermons 
- In the near future I will be including ideas on:

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.
