What is a children’s sermon object lesson?

The children’s sermon is a brief lesson for kids during the adult church worship service. These typically feature an object lesson to illustrate a Bible theme or passage.Often, the presenter will ask open-ended questions while the congregation enjoys their frequently humors responses. In many churches, the children are invited to gather at the front of the sanctuary and then dismissed to age-specific classes. The even is sometimes called a children’s message or ministry moment.

A children’s sermon object lesson is a way to teach a Bible story or spiritual concept in a way that’s fun, interactive, and memorable for kids. Here’s how it works:

1. The Object:

  • Simple and Familiar: Choose an ordinary object that children will recognize (a ball, a glass of water, a flashlight, etc.).
  • Relatable to the Message: The object should have qualities or symbolism that connect to the message you want to teach.

2. The Story:

  • Biblical Foundation: Select a Bible story or a specific Biblical principle.
  • Engage the Object: Demonstrate how the object represents an idea from the story or illustrates the principle you’re explaining.

3. The Lesson:

  • Clear and Concise: Explain the connection between the object and the Bible message in a way that children can understand.
  • Make it Personal: Help children apply the lesson to their own lives in practical ways.

Here’s a simple example:

  • Object: A mirror
  • Bible Story/Principle: We are to reflect God’s love to others. (James 1:22-25)
  • Demonstration: Hold up the mirror and talk about how it reflects what’s in front of it. Ask the children what we should be reflecting if we are God’s children.
  • Lesson: Explain that just as a mirror reflects light, we are to reflect God’s love, kindness, and goodness outwards to others.

Why object lessons are great for kids:

  • Hands-on: Kids learn by doing, and object lessons make the message tangible.
  • Visual: It creates an image to associate with the concept, helping it stick in their memory.
  • Engaging: Kids are naturally curious; using an ordinary object in a surprising way sparks their interest.

  1. I came to this site early last week. I tried returning to it and now all of the lessons say they cant be found. Does anyone know why this is?

  5. Thank you for all the great ideas. I’ve used several of your object lessons with our children and they loved. So did the adults.

  6. Hey everyone, Dap here from Meghalaya N.E India. I have recently been asked by my Church to speak for the next months first Sunday for the Children Sermon Service. I have never really spoken in such a setting and I don’t feel worthy enough either but I feel this is God’s way of reaching out to me since I have started to be so distant. I always have this idea that kids usually really grasp on tightly to anything you say so I really want this opportunity to be able to give the kids of this day an age a lesson that this generation can really relate to, but I’m not aware as to what I should speak about. I would really like your opinions as this is where I was led to when I was saying “Lord what do you want me to do or speak about?” I really feel God led me here. God Bless you all
