What they don't finish on Sunday, they'll work on throughout the week because the word searches, puzzles, dot-to-dots and other activities in them are fun and engaging.
Customizable bulletins draw children back to your church
Give children a church bulletin that clearly identifies your church, encouraging them to return. Each Children's Worship Bulletin is customizable so you can include your church name and address, your youth pastor's name and even your church logo!
Educational bulletins make it easy to create entire lessons
Children's Worship Bulletins are designed by professionals who use proven educational methods to teach basic Scripture knowledge, not doctrine. It's easy to create an entire lesson plan from a single bulletin.
In this short article, we show you how to create two classroom activities by using our children's church bulletins about Pentecost.
Children's church bulletin about Pentecost for ages 3-6: Peter told the people ...
- Print a bulletin for each child
- Print the memory cards sheet and cut out each card
- Gather enough pencils for everyone
- Have a white board and dry erase marker or blackboard and chalk. Write, "Everyone who calls on the name of the name of the Lord will be saved. — Acts 2:21" on the board
- Give each child a bulletin and pencil.
- Explain the activity, "Today, we're going to hear a story about Pentecost. Then, we'll play a game that will help us memorize a verse from our Scripture lesson."
- Instruct the children to solve the puzzle, "Peter told the people …" while you read aloud Acts 2:1-21.
- Explain the game, "I'm going to give one of you a card onto which is printed part of our memory verse. As we say the verse together, the person with the card will jump up when we get to the part of the verse that's printed on his or her card. Then, I'll give out another card. We'll say the verse again, but this time, two of you will get to jump up when we get to the part of the verse that's printed on your card. We'll take turns so that everyone has a chance to have a card and to jump up when we recite the part of the verse that's on your card."
- Select a volunteer to go first and hand them a card. (Cards do not have to be handed out in order.) Lead the children in reciting the verse and reference. If needed, help the child with the card know when to jump up.
- Continue, handing out a new card until all 12 cards have been handed out, reciting the verse together each time. If necessary, redistribute the cards so that everyone has the opportunity to jump up.
- After everyone has had a chance to have a card and jump up, put all the cards away and see if the class can recite the verse and reference from memory.
