Reformation Day Party Plan

This weekend is not only Halloween, but it is also the 503rd anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Here is a lesson we’ve put together for this weekend’s Bible classes that highlights the themes of the Reformation–that only Jesus saves us from sin, and we learn about Jesus only in the Bible.

Lesson Highlights:

  • Only Jesus can save us from Satan, sin, and death.
  • We have the Bible to tell us that Jesus is our only Savior.
  • The Reformers…

Organizational Structure

When I started in my position as Fellowship Kids Pastor, the team I inherited was like most CM teams. The team was organized by area. We had an Elementary Director and a Preschool Director. For the size of our ministry and team I made a change right off the bat that seemed kind of weird but worked for us.

I re-organized by function instead of area. What I saw was a duplication of efforts and parts of the ministry that were in a sense in competition with each other. Both areas…

Ways to talk about the Gospel with Kids

During a recent CM Connect live chat we were sharing ways we talk about the gospel with kids. One of the ways my team talks about the gospel with kids is to break apart John 3:16 since this is a verse most kids are familiar with.

First we talk through what God has done for us (giving His only son) and why (because He loves us so much). Then we share how the verse says that whoever believes in him. At this point I talk about how words often change their meanings over time. I…

Is my child ready to ask Jesus to be Lord of their life?

Is my child ready to ask Jesus to be Lord of their life?

Use the following 5 questions to help you determine if your child is ready to ask Jesus to be the Lord of their life. Remember, there is no magic to the questions. The main goal is to determine if your child recognizes that their own sin separates them from God and that Jesus’ death on the cross makes them right with God. You will also find some things to say if your child doesn’t seem to be grasping these… Continue

The Road Trip formerly known as “The KidzBlitz Road Trip”

I have hijacked the KidzBlitz road trip and it is now called the CMConnect Road Trip.

Question Time

“Who do you say that I am? is the ultimate question required of every generation and every generation must answer it for itself.” (Frank Viola, Leonard Stewart - Jesus Manifesto)

The way in which we will be remembered and the legacy that we leave behind will ultimately be determined by our answer to this question. Our perception of Jesus will determine the life that we live and the impact we make.…

10 Commandment Trivia

So, this last week I had a Sunday School time class for the "kids" of

the church. I had about 16 in one little bitty room. But we had fun.

Ages 4 through 18 all in one room doesn't work very well for a typical

lesson so it was a game day. Not an "active" game as each kid only had

enough room to sit... really.

So, we played "10 Commandment Trivia". I had cards numbered 1-10 with

the commandments on the backside. The kids took turns drawing a card (2

sets of… Continue

Random Thought #4.75 "More Continuation..."

Sorry about my last post (Which I deleted)

I re-read it again and realized that I definitely wrote it late at night when that morning I only had 2 hours sleep!
Therefore I made the crucial mistake of posting while my "filter" was down.

Usually I'd like to think I'm good at keeping the emotional posts at bay (Typically anger-induced ones) but sometimes they get through the filter when it's…
