This week I have done a Sermon Note Round-Up for kids! Sometimes children who grow up in church can get bored with the routine sitting in church listening to long sermons scenario. Having a ready sermon note sheet for your child(ren) may help them to pay attention more to listening to the service. Many of these sheets have various activities printed on the paper besides a note-taking section. Explore the different styles and see what might work best for your child’s age and maturity.
Another idea: Make these sheets available for all the children in your church. They may help children who may be new to the concept of sitting in a regular church service as opposed to being in a regular children’s service during the worship hour, particularly those who may be guests or children who only come to church on Sunday mornings. Don’t be afraid to challenge children to better listen to and incorporate God’s Word in their lives by using a tool like this. It can help them grow spiritually and teach them to sit more attentively in the church service. I can’t promise that a sheet like this won’t be used for passing notes from time to time but I do believe that it can be a resource to direct their focus on the Lord.
Right now I am working on a set of sermon note sheets for missions conferences!! They will be available within the next week or two. I am very excited to be back involved in providing ministry and Christian parents with tools they can use for their families and in their ministries.
