Are You Leading a Summer VBS or Neighborhood Bible Club?


Are you leading a summer VBS or Neighborhood Bible Club?

This is a great way to share the gospel with kids.

You can do it on your driveway, in the church parking lot, or even on a dry erase board.

You can make it small or make it huge and sit the kids around the square…the kids always love it!

A Creative Way to Share the Gospel

My degree at Moody Bible was Evangelism and Discipleship.  This technique is one we used in the subways and on the streets.  After graduating from Moody, I used it during Neighborhood Bible Clubs.  It’s so easy to gather kids around the big square on the ground and then tell them the “greatest love story of all time.” 

It takes less than 4 minutes to do – so check out the video to see how it’s done!

 

(if you are reading this in a feed or email click here to see the video)

This video took me two takes and BOTH times I messed up the word sin. lol!  I didn’t want to RE-DRAW the set-up so I just went with it.  Sorry that the word doesn’t look quite right!

I said a few verses in the video without references so here are the references:

John 3:16 – “ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Romans 6:23- “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 5:28 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

I John 5:12 “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

I John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

This little light of mine – I’m gonna let it shine!!!  Let’s shine together!  Please pass  this on to Sunday School teachers or friends who could use this and if you have a creative method please share it in the comments below!

Do You Know Christ?

Do you journey to the grand canyon for the souvenir T-shirt or snow globe with the snowflakes that fall when you shake it? No. The reward of the Grand Canyon IS the Grand Canyon. The wide-eyed realization that you are a part of something ancient, splendid, powerful, and greater than you.

em>The cache of Christianity is Christ. Not money in the bank or a car in the garage or a healthy body or a better self-image. Secondary and tertiary fruits perhaps. But the Fort Knox of faith is Christ. Fellowshipping with Him. Walking with Him. Pondering Him. Exploring Him. The heart stopping realization that in him you are a part of something ancient, endless, unstoppable and unfathomable. And that He, who can dig the Grand Canyon with his pinkie, thinks you’re worth his death on Roman timber. Christ is the reward of Christianity. Why else would Paul make Him his supreme desire? “I want to know Christ.” (Phil. 3:10) – Max Lucado, Next Door Savior

Do you know Christ? Have you placed your faith in Jesus, not in your good works, but solely in Jesus’ work on the cross and his resurrection? Have you told Him, “Jesus I believe and I am sorry for the sins I have done”? Then you know Christ as your personal Savior.

But that’s only the beginning. There is so much more! Open the Bible and read for yourself. Jesus is amazing (that’s an understatement!). I am reading through the book of Matthew right now in my morning quiet time. I am amazed that though I’ve read it numerous times, I continue to learn new things about Jesus and new things about myself.

It’s Christmas Eve, a day of remembrance. The Christ child, “Immanuel, God with us” was born so that the God, who carved the Grand Canyon with his pinkie, could know you personally. God went to great lengths to know you…is it so hard to open our Bibles for just 15 minutes a day to know him? It shouldn’t be, but I’ll be the first to admit that it is.

Do you know Christ? I know President Obama but not personally. I know a lot about him, what he thinks and how he acts. But I can’t call him up for a chat on the phone. But then there’s my husband. I know all his ways, his likes and dislikes. I know him intimately and we share in a deep and meaningful relationship. Do you know Christ personally?

“We are about to begin a new year. I love a clean slate! In the new year resolve to know Christ more deeply than you ever have. Resolve to allow Jesus to touch your marriage, parenting and home and transform it. He can do a new thing in your home in the new year! Join me in the journey as we Walk with the King!

Merry CHRISTmas!
