Signs of the Times

(Begin lesson time by asking students if theyíre looking forward to driving a car someday, and then show pictures of various street signs.)

Why are street signs and signals necessary? (Receive answers)

Can you imagine driving on the roadways without street signs or signals? In fact, when cars were first invented, street signs didnít even exist! It was dangerous to drive! Street signs serve two main purposes, to warn drivers of possible danger ahead and to point them in the right direction. Godís Word is like this too, it warns us of what lies ahead and tells us the right way to go in life.

(Show picture of a Dead End sign.) 

What do you suppose is the purpose of the Dead End sign? Is it a warning or directional sign? The Dead End sign warns drivers that a particular street has no exit. A Dead End Street might look like the right way to go, but at the end of it, thereís no way out; itís dead. Likewise, the Bible tells us that living life apart from God might look like the right way to go, but in the end, it leads to deathóeternal death.

Godís Word tells us the right way to go. We are guided by the Ten Commandments and hundreds of other commands to keep us on the right road in life. These include love one another; love your enemies; bless them that curse you; and do good to them that hate you. However, when God first created people, he gave Adam and Eve only one commandment. Do you know what it was? Learn more about Signs of the Times.

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! ~ Another sister in Christ, Mable D.

I appreciate these ideas for Sunday School . . . they come in very handy. ~Tessa, East Africa

Yummy Devotion: Manna Wafers*

What You Need: Small flour tortillas, soft butter or margarine, honey, sesame seeds, non-stick cookie sheet pan, plastic knives, parchment paper for baking.

What You Do: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Give each child a sheet of parchment paper, a small flour tortilla and a plastic knife. Cut the tortilla into fourths. Pour some honey into the
butter or margarine and mix well. (Sweeten to taste) Spread the honey-butter onto the tortillas. Sprinkle on top with some sesame seeds. Bake until golden brown. Allow to cool before eating.

*This recipe is intended to remind you of Godís faithfulness to provide food for his people. Real manna was a miracle from God and not made by human hands.

Easter Drama
The Un-Passionate Christ


Ages: Older Teens - Adults

Focus: What if Jesus came to earth out of selfish ambition, rather than to die in our place?

The actors pantomime their parts while the Narrator speaks slowly. (Optional: Allow Jesus to speak his lines rather than the Narrator. However, the last line should be spoken by Jesus).†Jesus moves from one scene to the next with the actors remaining "frozen" until it is their scene. You may want to darken the room and use a spot light to focus on each scene while it's being acted out.†

Characters: Narrator, Jesus, Bartimaeus the blind beggar, Disciples, a few Townspeople, Woman caught in adultery, Pharisees, Judas, Roman Guards.

Set Up: On your stage or chancel area set up five vignettes
. . . Go to the "Un-Passionate Christ" Easter Skit
