“You’re Invited” Bible Craft Ideas on the Parable of the Wedding Feast

The parable of the marriage feast is a great opportunity to include party-like elements in craft and story-telling. The message we hope to convey to kids with this story is that God invites and accepts all people to be part of His family, and all we have to do is choose His gift of salvation. With these crafts, celebrate that fact with a decorative “invitation,” a “pinata,” and a reminder that we are clothed not with wedding garments, but with the blood of Jesus.

Bible Verses or Craft Captions to Consider…

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 6:23

To him (Jesus) all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” -Acts 10:43

The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. -Romans 8:16-17

Clothed with Christ…part of His family!

All are invited…to God’s Heavenly party!

You are invited into God’s family! Just believe!

No excuses…accept God’s free invitation!
