One Body In Christ

Posted on

One Body In ChristThis craft can be used to illustrate different characteristics of the church.

The church, those that have been saved repentance and by faith in Christ, is the body of Christ.

  • “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15

The one and only head of the church is Christ.

  • “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.” Colossians 1:18

Believers are baptized by the Spirit into the body of Christ.

  • “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:13

The unity, love and humility that must exist within the church.

  • “so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” 1 Corinthians 12:25-26

Every believer is spiritually equal before God.

  • “For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” Romans 12:4-5

As members of the body of Christ, we must use our gifts to serve one another.

  • “Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.” Romans 12:6-8

Instructions

  1. Print the template on cardstock. (Template)
  2. Color and cut out all of the pieces.
  3. Connect the arms and legs to the main body piece using metal brads/ paper fasteners.
  4. Glue the church image to the body and the cross image to the head.

The Church

Posted on

The church is the group of believers not the building itself. It is very important that kids have a correct understanding of what the church is and isn’t.

Important aspects to cover when teaching our kids about the church:

  • The difference between the local and universal church.
  • When the church was founded.
  • The reason we gather together every week.
  • Our responsibilities as members of the church.
  • How the church is organized.
  • The differences and similarities between the early church and the modern church.
  • Why it is important to teach sound doctrine in the church.
  • The responsibilities of the entire church.

This craft will be a great addition to your teaching of the church.

Do you treasure God’s Word? Do you treasure it in the depths of your heart?

The Bible is like gold to those who know its value. It is the very word of God.

  2. Color and cut out all of the pieces.
  3. Glue both sides of the chest together.

  5. Glue the Bible, gold coin piece and the smallest piece onto construction paper. This gives the item strength.
  6. Cut out the pieces from the construction paper.
  7. Cut out the rectangle from the bottom of the treasure chest.
  8. Glue the gold coin piece to the treasure chest.
  9. Take the smallest piece and fold on the solid lines, creating a crease. This will become the stand for the Bible.

If you like you can add glitter to the gold piece part.

Go Into All The World And Preach The Gospel

Posted on Updated on

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15

This commandment from Jesus shows us the importance of witnessing to others. Teach your kids that they can witness anywhere they are and with who ever they are with. They can grow up to be missionaries and preach the gospel around the world or they can witness with their friends at school.

“…and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Go 6

This simple craft will be a great reminder that they can witness:

Go 1

At Home

Go 2

In Their City

Go 3

In Their State

Go 4

In Their Country

I forgot to include a picture of the continent piece, but it is available in the template.

In Their Continent

Go 5

And Around The World

Instructions

  2. Color and cut out all of the pieces. For the state pentagon have the kids draw in their state. For the country pentagon have the kids draw in their country. You can also print a picture from the internet and glue it on.
  3. Glue on the continent to the continent pentagon.
  4. Hold all the pieces together with a metal brad or metal book ring.

I have included cover pieces if you with to use them. (Cover Template)

Let Your Light Shine Sun Catcher

Posted on Updated on

“14 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Let Your Light Shine Sun Catcher

Instructions

  1. Print the template onto cardstock. (Template)
  2. Cut out the templates leaving a white border around the lamps.
  3. Glue the templates onto black construction paper. This will help strengthen the craft.
  4. Cut out the templates from the construction paper, making sure to cut out every area of white space.
  5. Stick one of the templates onto contact paper or a self laminating sheet.
  6. Fill in the empty space with colored tissue paper.
  7. Glue on the other template to the back.
  8. Finish the craft by adding another sheet of contact paper or another self laminating sheet.

Using double sided tape you can now tape the craft to your house, car or classroom window. Remind your kids that they need to let their light shine before everyone so that people can see their good deeds and give all the glory to God.
