Children's Sermon: The Big Inning

from the book, It's in the Bag, 52 Bible Talks for Children's Ministry

children's sermon, sunday school Bible lessons
Focus: Jesus, Creator, and Peacemaker – Genesis 1:1, Colossians 1:15-19. For use in Sunday school, Children's Church, midweek programming, or Bible clubs!

Place a Baseball Cap and a Bible in a tote-bag or paper sack.

(You will need two people to present this sermon.)

Person 1: (Removes baseball cap from bag, places on head.)

Person 2: We don't wear baseball caps in church. It's not appropriate. 

Person 1: Sure it is! The "big - inning" is today, right here at church!

Person 2: What are you talking about?

Person 1: Wow! Don't you ever read your Bible? It's right there in the very first book. It says, in the "Big - inning" God created everything.

Person 2: Oh brother, it doesn't say the "Big - inning." It says in the beginning, at the start of time, God created the heavens and the earth.

Person 1: Well that's disappointing!

Person 2: Why do you say that? 

Person 1: Because I love baseball!

Person 2: You can still love baseball, but creation is a much bigger event than a baseball game! 

Let me read something to you. (Remove Bible from bag, read Colossians 1:15-16 from a child-friendly Bible.)

Person 2: These Bible verses are about Jesus.

Person 1: You mean to say that Jesus created everything?

Person 2: That's what it says! Not only that, it also says that God became a man to make everything right for us. (Read Colossians 19-22 from a child-friendly Bible) Jesus made peace for us by dying on the cross. This means we don't have to be God's enemies any longer! 

Person 1: God's enemies? That's scary!

Person2: Yes it is. But, we don't have to be his enemy. We can become God's children by trusting in Jesus to be our Savior and Forever Friend. The Bible says, "If we confess our sins, that is admit we do wrong, God can be trusted to forgive us and take away our sins" 1 John 1:9.

(Close in prayer.)

Home Connection Item for children to take with them (optional): Baseball signed with Genesis 1:1 and "The Big-inning" written on it. Find more Children's sermons like this, check out It's in the Bag, 52 Bible Talks for Children's Ministry.

Summer Bible Lessons


Bible skits for childrens ministry

I've always thought it was important to teach something different during the summer—to change our regularly scheduled midweek Bible lessons or Sunday school curriculum. For one thing, families go on vacation, with some children attending one week, but then they might be gone 1, 2, or 3 weeks at a time. If you're teaching Bible curriculum that builds on the previous lessons, then your students are going to miss out. With that in mind, I was inspired to develop our Lights, Camera, Action Bible Skits. These Bible skits give children a change of pace, and keep them actively involved in telling the Bible story. Each skit has discussion questions too. They can also be used throughout the year with your existing programs.

We have found that children have fun helping to prepare the sets and dressing up in character. We film them too, which is an extra level of excitement for the kids, as well as a great way to review the lesson the following week by letting them watch their performance! 

Do you change your teaching methods for Sunday school or midweek programs during the summer months? If so, we'd love to know what you do! Email us at info@sundayschoolnetwork.com

We'd love to know how you use our skits to teach the children in your ministry. Email: info@sundayschoolnetwork.com

 



Survivor-Temptation Island TM

Summertime programming for Youth Ministry 

Bible game event for summer time youth ministry


You will love our outdoor Bible game adventure!

Goal:
Through various fun games, activities, challenges, and group Bible discussions, participants will learn that temptation is from Satan and can lead to sin. Participants will also learn how to receive God's power to resist Satan's temptations. Event lasts approximately 3.5 hours. For grades 5 and up*.

Introduction
From the time we begin to walk and talk, we are tempted to choose our way of living and making our own choices, and not God's way of living or choosing his ways. Our parents didn't have to teach us to do wrong, because we are sinful from birth. When we are young, we might be tempted to steal a cookie or disobey our parents. However, these sins, though seemingly insignificant, still separate us from Holy God. As we get older, our sins can destroy our health and relationships with others. The Bible says that Satan is like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. Satan wants to defeat God's children and will do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal. God has given us his Word so we can defend ourselves against Satan's fiery attacks.
