This craft is a great visualization of 2 Timothy 3:16; God as the author of Scripture.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching,rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16

Update: Scripture Explorers Club

Posted on

Last week I quickly mentioned that my church is currently working on creating and implementing our own childrens ministry program and that I would later explain it in more detail in a later post.

This post will be a quick rundown through the program. It will not cover every little detail, but it will give you a good idea of what the program will be like.

In the coming weeks we hope to create a website where all the material will be uploaded and available to be downloaded for free by any church that wishes to try out the Scripture Explorers program.

LogoThe program is called Scripture Explorers.

Club motto: “Worshipping God By Knowing Him And Making Him Known”

Club Verse: “and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:15

Club focus: Teaching children the foundational truths of Gods Word so that they can have a concrete understanding of God Himself and be equipped to share Him with others.

The club will be divided into different age groups.

Lamb Uniform Logo The first group are the Lambs.

Age: 3 to 4 years old.

Group verse: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

Mascot name: Wool.

Bee Uniform Logo

The second group are the Bees.

Age: Kindergarten to Second grade.

Group verse: “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalm 119:103

Mascot name: Pollen

Ant Uniform Logo

The third group are the Ants.

Age: Third grade to Sixth grade.

Group verse: “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11

Mascot name: Harvest.

Eagle Uniform Logo

The last group are the Eagles.

Age: Middle school to High school.

Group verse: “And how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:15

Mascot name: Feathers.

Workbooks

Children in each group will first have to complete an entrance booklet before they earn their main book. (Sample)

The entrance booklet serves two purposes:

  1. It will give kids a sample of what they will be learning in the main book.
  2. They will learn to get into the practice of memorizing Bible verses.

After they finish the entrance booklet they will earn and work on the main book. (Sample)

The book is divided into different sections with a variety of lessons in each.

Each lesson is divided into 4 sections:

  1. Biblical Truth- The main teaching of the lesson.
  2. QandA- The application of the teaching.
  3. Definitions- An explanation of specific word(s) that help kids understand the Bible verse.
  4. Memorize- The Bible verse that the kids need to memorize.

Every year the book will cover a specific doctrine.

Book One is The Bible. Kids will learn the answer to questions like: What is the Bible? How did we get the Bible? Why is the Bible important? How can we trust that the Bible is true?

The next books will cover doctrines like: God, Creation, The Fall Of Man, Christ, Justification, Sanctification.

Every group will use the same book, although adapted for their age.

The Bible Lesson

The teaching will be based on the lessons from the book. This way the handbook helps to reinforce the lesson and the lesson helps to reinforce the handbook.

So this was a very quick rundown/outline of the program itself.

When the website goes up we will also include other resources like: clip art, achievement pages, ideas for uniforms, ideas for book-bags, certificates, coloring pages, door hangers and flyers, postcards, forms (registration, weekly point sheets, sign in) and of course the logos.

Ill let you guys know as soon as the website is up and running. So keep your eyes out for that.

Treasure Gods Word

Posted on

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. 

“My son, if you will receive my words and treasure my commandments within you… If you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures.” Proverbs 2:1,4

Treasure Gods Word

Instructions

  1. Print the template. (Template)
  2. Color and cut out all of the pieces.
  3. Glue both sides of the chest together.
  4. Assemble the treasure chest.
  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.
  10. Glue one part of the stand to the back of the Bible piece and the other to the gold coin piece.

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

Wolves In Sheeps Clothing

Posted on Updated on

Some people are like wolves who pretend to be sheep. They act and dress like the sheep, only to destroy the lambs once they are among them.  We should teach our kids that the Bible tells us how we can figure out which sheep are true sheep, and which are wolves. This emphasizes the importance of reading and knowing Scripture.

Wolves In Sheeps Clothing

Instructions

  1. Print the template. (Template)
  2. Color the mask.
  3. Cut it out.
  4. Glue the mask onto a piece of cardstock.
  5. Cut out the mask again, including the eyes.
  6. Glue a large popsicle stick to the bottom of the mask.

Faith Comes By Hearing

Posted on Updated on

Children don’t understand everything they read in the Bible, but they should be taught the importance of reading the Bible at an early age. Teach them the importance of reading Scripture every day.  Let their lives be saturated by the Word Of God so they cultivate a habit of turning to the Bible for any question they might have.

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17

Suggestions

This craft can also be used for the story of Mary and Martha in Luke 10.

Faith Comes By Hearing

Instructions

  1. Print the templates. I have included three different sizes of ears. (Template)
  2. Color the head and the ears.
  3. Cut out all of the pieces.
  4. Glue the long rectangle pieces to each side of the head/hair piece.
  5. Wrap the band around your kids head. Once you have the desired length use a couple of paper clips or a piece of tape to hold the shape. Then add glue to set it in place.
  6. Fold back the square on each ear.
  7. Add glue to each square on each ear and with the band around the childs head stick the ears in place.

I have included templates for both boys and girls.

Jungle Jaunt Bible Crafts

Posted on Updated on

I have been hard at work and as equally excited because in the coming weeks we will be working on preparing our church’s Vacation Bible School for this summer. Every year we choose from one of two themes provided by Life Way. This year we decided to go with their jungle theme version Jungle Jaunt.

Jungle Jaunt Logo

So I have been busy as a beaver working and planning the crafts that will go along with our Bible story each day. Starting on Monday and continuing each day until Friday I will be posting our crafts for the entire week of Vacation Bible School. Each day crafts for a different Bible story.

I have noticed that many churches have already held their Vacation Bible School in June, but for those that still have not I hope these crafts will inspire you and help make planning your Vacation Bible School a little less stressful :).
