April 23, 2016 Becky Fischer Moms, plan your summer now! Directors of Christian Education and Children’s Pastors will want to start planning next year, now after hearing this interview from 2009. Re-visions children’s ministry.
And next week, we will start a short series on healing, since I see I haven’t talked about that in a while. Please pray for me as I attempt to expand. We need a more professional podcast platform and that means a little money input. We have been many times asked to go to visual and of course that takes a little more money. Already time budget is over-full. Please pray for inspiration, protection, help, and provision. Thanks.
Bicentenary of founder of Sunday school movement
Thanks to Tom Broadbridge @thekidsbible for sharing this with us.
Children’s programming is something we all too often take for granted. Here is a celebration from Britain of a fellow who founded Sunday School there. Notice how much good it has done, as is well stated in the article. Notice too, that in its time it was controversial.
The Great Shalom Broadcast will be discussing religious education next episode, as we consider loving our children.
HI you all! I had a wonderful time in the Church Effectiveness Conference of the Southwest Texas District of the Pentecostal Church of God a couple of weeks ago. (If you are jealous because they got a mention, then just you have me out too, so I can mention you!) We had a great time. We talked about how to improve teaching.
One of the things I like to do, and did that day, is ask for a great idea from everyone. Great ideas come from everyone and wow! rich!
This time, I found a little slip that I had missed when I was in the podium. And it is great. So let me share it here.
Always include a practical application of the lesson for the children to experience. Read – Experience. For instance, for the story of the Last Supper, flatten a table so it is flat on the floor. Don’t use chairs, but everyone sit on the floor. What was there? What was the purpose? How we remember it today? Experience meaning.
Also, imagine a lesson on footwashing.
Too bad this participant had only a little slip of paper (because that is what I passed out.) Don’t you wish I had passed out big sheets now?
Thanks, to whoever passed this in! So glad I saw it.
It was great. I learned a lot too, as there were several speakers.
