This is somewhat like musical chairs,
but no one is out. On Wednesday night when we want to encourage new
friendships, this is what we do:
1. Have someone play a CD. (The more exciting the music the better.)
2. Tell the children when they hear the music they are to go around all the
chairs, or could be tables or just the room, in the same direction and wiggle
and jiggle like a wet noodle.
3. Now tell them to look to their left and right at who is sitting next to
them. Most likely it will be a friend they usually sit with.
4. Tell them that when the music stops they are to sit next to two new people.
5. Once they are reseated they . . .

We asked our local pizza delivery restaurant to donate unused boxes. We
then used paper fasteners to reinforce the box at the back bottom corners.
Each box contains coloring sheets, blank paper, crayons, fruit snacks and a
pencil. The box gives the child a firm surface to color on, saving our
hymnals and pew bibles :). The children are welcome to take home the
contents and return the empty box to be refilled.
Bay Vista Baptist Church
taught his followers about the kingdom of Heaven by using everyday objects.
And since most children look with anticipation to the day they can drive, what
better way to explain the life-saving lessons of Godís kingdom, than by
using common objects such as street signs?
Street signs serve two main purposes, to warn drivers of possible danger ahead
and to point them in the right direction. Godís Word is like this too, it
warns us of what lies ahead and tells us the right way to go in life.
The Dead-End sign can teach us about God's kingdom because it is placed at the
beginning of a street to warn drivers that there is no exit. However, if you
ignore the sign and go down the street anyway, youíll discover that itís a
dead-end. When we ignore Godís Word and his commandments, we will also
discover that itís a dead-end. And like Adam and Eve learned, weíll find
out that our wrong choices lead to spiritual death. God wants us to go the
right way in life, which is why he gave us his Word to learn right from wrong,
and why he gives his Spirit to those who trust him. Get

I just wanted to let you know
what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's
church on Sunday nights and had ran out of ideas to use. I prayed that God
would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright! This website! I
was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful
site! I love it! It has such great ideas. Thank you so much! ~

Adult Devotional Made With Clay, but Created for a Purpose
The thought of "why am I here?" is very prevalent. So prevalent as to be the foundation to many books and philosophies. The desire to be relevant or impacting, the desire to be the hero appears to be a core desire of most people. And to find this purpose mankind has gone to great lengths to stand out. But what if that is all wrong? What if it is not
the what we do but the why we do it?
