    I am hoping you would be willing to share a link on your website for my newly launched children’s sermon blog:

    It will contain a children’s sermon for each Sunday, as well as various ideas and resources for children’s ministry.

    I am an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A., and have written a series of children’s sermon books entitled A Time With Our Children: Stories for Use in Worship, published by The United Church Press. I look forward to taking this ministry online with new stories and ideas.

    Thank-you for your kind consideration.

  5. Wanda Johnston says

    I would like to thank you for all that you offer us totaly free to use. I am so appreciative of those who do not charge for something that is for God or Jesus. I just do not understand why if being saved is so important, (which I know without a shadow of a dought we have to be saved!) why do people charge so much when a lot of people do not have money to buy their books, lessons, CDs or DVDs. I have enjoyed sharing the lessons with my Sunday School students now for about three years. Your lessons are so informative and fun. The lessons get the attention of the children. Thank you so much. God bless you all!!! Wanda Johnston

  6. Glory Rajan says

  8. Karina Schiaffino Campos says

    Hi! My name is Karina. I’m from Argentina and I work with kids. They are spanish native speakers but I’m teaching them the Bible (stories) in English. I hope giving them a tool (English) and the word of God for the missionary work. It is a hard work because I work with a lot of visual aids in order to make them understand English language. So pray for these argentinian kids and any suggestion is well received. Thanks.

    Thank you

  12. Opeyemi Olufoye says

    This is very interesting, we need to catch them young by presenting all these stories that can transform their little hearts for Christ. Keep up the good work.

  13. Susie says

    The children in my class had a chance to say what they would like a lesson on, as a reward. I told them I would do what they requested. I didn’t expect them to say, “cowboy story”, but they did. I prayed about this and I would hope it was God that set me on to an old record by Marty Robbins. It’s called, The Master’s Call . It is certainly a song about rebellion and redemption. I can do a story around the song and I think it will be a good lesson for them.

      Hi Pastor Pat,
      I’m sure you’ve already completed the Baptism lesson by now, but thought I’d post this for anyone interested.

      One of our FAVORITE ways to teach children about Baptism is by using a Cucumber object lesson…

      Before we accept Christ & are Baptised, we are just a simple Cucumber… but once we are Baptised we become like Pickles :-) … A Pickle is simply a Cucumber who has been “submersed” and soaked in vineger, and thru this decision and commitment it is forever changed into a Pickle… still a Cucumber, but a CHANGED Cucumber…. just as a Christian who has accepted Christ and chosen to be Baptised, to be changed both internally and externally (thru a visible life change) and making a commitment to follow Christ!

      Don’t know if that helps, but as you can see MANY object lessons from the Cucumber / Pickle object lesson can be made to help children understand (and adults too!) the commitment of Baptism!

  17. Brenda Morrow says

    I just wanted to thank you for all the lessons you ahve sent me. All the children in my church have enjoyed them. Even some of the adults have told me they enjoyed them too. Keep them coming and keep up the good work. God has blessed you.


  18. Jennifer Gamboa says

    Do you have anything on the Parable of the Great Banquet? I don’t know where to start and what activities to do with the children…

    Thanks so much, in advance, for your consideration in this matter!
