The Scariest Words in the Bible

Ask children to think of scary words or things that scare them. When you say go, have them shout them out loud. 


"Oh my those are scary words! But there are much scarier words in the Bible than those, and Jesus said them! Let me read them to you." 

Read Matthew 7:21-23 from a child-friendly Bible.

"What do you suppose we must do to keep from being sent away from Jesus? The Bible tells us we must turn from our sin and turn to God. We are to say with our mouths, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead." Get the rest of this activity.

I tell the kids that we are taking a trip through the Bible but will never leave our seats. I begin by saying "I took a trip through the Bible and found "Abraham." The next child will repeat what I said and then add something they found that begins with the next letter in the alphabet (eg. Beersheba). The second child then says "I took a trip through the Bible and found Abraham and Beersheba." The third child says, "I took a trip through the Bible and found Abraham, Beersheba, and Canaan." Play continues as such for the whole alphabet.

Choose a topic such as Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, Jesus, Books of the Bible, Heroes, Old Testament, etc. Choose ONE topic per session. Write the topic on the board. Below the topic write each letter of the alphabet with two blank lines to write-in words next to each letter. Create teams and have each child take a turn giving a word from scripture that begins with any of the  letters. (IMPORTANT - The words must be pertinent to scripture. For example, if the letter is "t" then an acceptable answer would be Ten Commandments, Thomas, or tithe; answers that are not acceptable are normal everyday words such as "the, them, tomorrow, to.") Once those two blanks are filled in for each letter, no one may give another answer beginning with that letter. Have the children "justify" some of their questionable answers. You'll be surprised what they learn and what you will learn!

Poor in Spirit: Gettin’ Empty

Present various items to the class which are empty such as an empty bag of cookies, an empty piggy bank or an empty jewelry box. Create anticipation for the kids to see what’s inside. Ask, “What do you expect to find? Who wants to be the first to open one of them up?” (You might allow a few kids to come open them.) “Did you expect to find them empty? Is being empty ever a good thing?” Most often we like things to be filled up. When we go on a trip, we want our gas tanks filled. When we’re hungry we want our stomachs filled. When we get a box of candy, we want candy in it. In fact, I can’t think of anything that when empty, it’s a good thing! 

When Jesus began his teaching, he said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” What do you think of when you hear of someone being poor? (Discuss) 

When we think of being poor, we think of someone who doesn’t have a lot of money or nice clothing or food to eat or who doesn’t live in a nice home, but this isn’t what Jesus is talking about. Being poor in spirit means . . .

It is a blessing to have these great ideas for children and youth ministry. Thank God for your great work. May God continue to bless Sunday School Network. ~ Uli

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.

Its hard for a small church like ours to afford Bible curriculum and
yours is so affordable and fun!

Been Changed Ice Breaker Game

Teams are determined by a colored spot or number on each nametag. After the teams of 2, 3, or 4 are assembled, give them large index cards on which have been written three verses of Scripture. Slightly alter one of the verses. The group has to identify the incorrect verse. (Jeopardy-type answers are also very good.)
