Sample Service Format

Are you looking for some exciting ways to vary the different lesson segments for your Children’s Church or Sunday School class?

All of us like to be in familiar settings. It makes us feel comfortable, secure, and at ease. Kids especially need this consistency in your classroom. However, consistency doesn’t mean doing the same thing in the same way week after week after week. Kids also need some change! So let’s spice it up this week! Now, don’t get carried away and change everything at the same time. Try presenting the Bible story in a different way. Do a special opening crowd breaker activity. Then next Sunday, try doing something new with the memory verse like a rebus puzzle. The next page is a basic Children’s Church service format filled with hints and ideas for adding zest, zeal and zip to your teaching and getting your creative juices flowing.
