“New Year’s” Ideas for Children’s Ministry

Children's Ministry Ideas for the New YearThe beginning of the new year brings a special opportunity for your children’s ministry. Kids are thinking about the new year and many will even stay up late with their families. I’ve even heard very young ones making grown-up sounding resolutions.

Since the holiday has their attention, use some of these free ideas to teach them God’s Word.

Several readers also like to use the Sunday after Christmas for the kids to write “Thanks You” cards for all their presents. We’ve uploaded a printable thank you card template for children and an object lesson to accompany it.

We hope you enjoy these ideas and find them useful in your ministry. Please leave a comment below to share your thoughts.

    Your list of websites is priceless and will save many hrs of searching . I have used many of them in the past but did not have a complied list. Thank you for that and all your inspirationaly ideas. I use them for my own grandkids and my SS class and pass them on for others.
    Thank you!
