We've also got some fun Bible games for
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.

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*.
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.
