I just wanted to let you know
what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's
church on Sunday nights and had ran out of ideas
to use. I prayed that God
would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright! This website! I
was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out.
What a wonderful
site! I love it! It has such great ideas.
Thank you so much! ~

ARMOR of GOD
Bible Lesson, Game, &
The Bible says God's children are protected by
supernatural armor; it is invisible, you canít see it or feel it. We
are told to "put on the full armor of God" to
protect ourselves from Satanís power and influence, "his
schemes," as the Bible puts it. Schemes means to plot or to conspire
against someone. Satan is plotting and conspiring to defeat us. (Spend a few minutes discussing
sin and how Satan tempts us.) The Bible gives
us a description of an ancient Roman soldier's armor and tells us how
we can put on supernatural armor to protect and defend ourselves from
Satan's fiery attacks.

Please Pass the Fruit
What You Need
A Bible, a
tangerine for each team, a permanent black marker for each team, and teaspoons
for each player.
Divide into teams. No more
than nine players per team. Have the players read Galatians 5:22-23. Each
player must choose one of the "Fruits Of The Spirit" and write it on
the outside of their teams' tangerine. (If you can't find a tangerine, use an
orange. A tangerine is best because it is easy to peel and has
easy-to-separate sections.) Designate a large playing area. Starting at the
center of your playing area, the
teams will work together to
reach the outside edges of the playing area. (See animated diagram of red and
blue teams, below.) Player #1 at the outside ends of each team begins to pass
their 'fruit' using only their spoons, no hands! When the fruit reaches the
last player on the team, that player rotates to the front of the line and
begins to pass the fruit as before. Players continue to pass their fruit,
advancing one player at a time, until one of the teams reaches the outer edges
of the playing area. The first team to reach the outer edges of the playing
area is the winning team! Play as many rounds as you prefer.
players have finished playing, have them sit down with their teams in a circle
and discuss how they can show the 'Fruit of the Spirit' that they wrote on
their tangerine. "Who can they show . . . read

The Lord is My Helper
we mail packages we use special wide tape to seal the boxes. But, when I was
about your age, we covered the boxes in brown paper and then tied a long piece
of string around the box so it held the sides and the ends. You might still
seal some boxes this way. (Cover a box with a heavy brown paper and begin to
secure it with a long piece of string.)
But, when you get to the part where you tie the knot in the string, it is
difficult unless you have someone to help you. (Ask for a volunteer to hold
his finger on the knot as it is being tied.)
In the story for today a woman came to Jesus and asked for help. At first
Jesus did not help her. He was making plain to everyone the strong faith she
had. She kept on asking Him because she really believed He could help her.
He daughter had a demon living inside her and causing all sorts of problems.
We do not know what those problems were, but someone else described similar
problems this way, "Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit
that makes him mute. And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he
foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid." (Mark 9:17-18)
The help she asked for uses a special word to describe it. Usually that help
