This part of my blog is for resources that I have been equipped with. I hope that the ideas posted here can be useful to other Ministries to further the kingdom of God.
This past week I was at CPC and held a workshop on “Teaching Kids To Love Devotions”. When I was finished presenting I told everyone I would post my ideas on my blog. So here they are.
I will be trying to give more information on how to use each idea in up coming resource blogs but for now here are the raw ideas for you to take and use in your ministries.
Portion taken from break-out session of
Teaching Kids to Love Devotions
Presented by Butch Hunter
Practical applications / Resources:
Assign a book to read with questions to answer.
What’s more important the education of this world or the success in our spiritual lives for the next life to come?
On your take home sheet provide suggestions for parents to get scripture into the kids hands in creative fun ways.
Write a freaky fact that can tie to memory verse for the week. Suggest parents stick it in their lunch.
Send home illustrations for parents to get ideas for getting kids to focus on a bible verse. ie: Fun size Milky Way with God created the heavens and the earth. Gen 1:1 The milky way is a part of the heavens above the earth that god created!
Send an extra sock in their backpack with: Romans 10:15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” the good news is Jesus took all our sins away. Or stick it in their shoes.
Have parents or you e-mail or text a fun message or perhaps a clue to a secret message with a Bible address.
Mail a puzzle that needs solved with Bible verses to the kids and have them bring it in for a prize.
Send a You Tube link to have the kids go to and watch with their parents. Give a few questions to be answered and some verses to look up and have them e-mail the answers back to you.
Text or email Bible trivia questions to them.
When kids are looking to becoming a Christian help them establish a devotion time with a reading plan and journal customized for them.
