KIDS MINISTRY RESOURCES

Resources to empower, equip and support parents as they lead life change in their home.

Kids Ministry Resources

Here at SFF Kids, we strive to see your child grow in their relationship with Jesus. As a team, we desire to come alongside you as the spiritual leader of the family to empower, equip, and support you along this journey. This season, our support looks very different than previously, but that does not change our heart, mission, or perseverance in seeing this happen. 


We believe the best LifeChange happens when parents are intentionally involved in their child's spiritual life. That intentional time will look different in every home but is necessary! 


To support LifeChange during this season, we have put together this email resource, followed by social media posts throughout the week with activities, thoughts, and questions to empower you to lead LifeChange in your home.

Early Childhood

It is always so amazing to watch how God reveals Himself to kids. In our Early Childhood Ministry, we understand the importance of teaching at their level, and in a method they understand. The curriculum we use focuses on a particular topic for the month; using this repetition is effective to help them understand who God is and how He desires a relationship with them. This month in SFF Early Childhood, Kids will go on an adventure to discover how we can worship Jesus. 


A fantastic resource that is a FREE app called "Bible for Kids." CLICK HERE This is a Bible app is specifically created for children to experience the Word of God in a fun and interactive way, and it also goes along with our curriculum on Sundays.

ELEMENTARY

Our passion at SFF Kids is to disciple a deep understanding and love of the promises and truth in God's word. We desire that every kid would fall in love with Jesus and the Bible!


In elementary kids ministry here at SFF we desire for kids to understand and grasp ahold of the promises of God! We believe that as they hide the Word and His promises in their heart, they can face anything with His help.

BIG GOD STORY

Grab a Bible, read Genesis 2-4 then tune in as Pastor David shares this part of the Big God Story. 

REMEMBER VERSE

We hide His word in our hearts, so we don't sin against Him! This week our remember verse comes from Proverbs 3:5-6.

PRAYER/BLESSING

There is something powerful when God's promises are spoken over us. A Blessing is a powerful way to help children know their value and worth in Christ. 


Open a Bible and read the following blessing from Matthew 6:31–33:

So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” … Your heavenly Father knows that you need [these things]. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you.


Invite the children to clench their hands tightly. Encourage them to ask God to reveal something they may be worrying about or holding too tightly. Give the kids a moment to hear from God. Then, explain that they can slowly open up their palms as a symbol of giving their worries to God as you speak the following blessing over them.


May you know that God is your Provider. May you praise Him this week for His goodness in your life.


EXPLORE

In this game children will toss craft sticks into cups of water to recall that God made water sweet.


SUPPLIES

• Disposable cups (20, 18 oz.)

• Water (approx. 1½ gal.)

• Craft sticks (1 per child)

• Masking tape


SET UP

Fill a cup about halfway with water. Set the cup on one side of the room. Place a small strip of masking tape on the floor about three feet away from the cup, to mark where children should stand.


RELATE

stand behind the tape.


In the desert, the Israelites came to water that tasted so bitter they couldn’t drink it. God told Moses to put a piece of wood in the water to make it drinkable, and it became sweet! To remember this event, we’re going to play a fun game.

REFLECT/REVIEW

One of the most excellent learning times is when we have to explain what we believe, or we have to articulate what we have learned. The reflection time is a great way to start processing deeper what we just learned and helps us think through the information presented. Grab a Bible, answer the questions, and see how God helps your kids grow.


• What did the Israelites do when they were thirsty and hungry? Exodus 15:24; 16:3

• How did God give His people the water and food they needed? Exodus 15:25; 16:13; 17:5–6

• How did God give His people the rest they needed? Exodus 16:23

• Why is it important to take a Sabbath day (a day of rest)?

• How do you trust God to take care of things in your life?

• When you have experienced hard situations how has God shown you that He will take care of you?

October 4th Resources

BIG GOD STORY

Grab a Bible, read Genesis 11-12; 15, then tune in as Mr. Don shares this part of the Big God Story. 

REMEMBER VERSE

We hide His word in our hearts, so we don't sin against Him! This week our remember verse comes from Isaiah 40:28.

PRAYER/BLESSING

There is something powerful when God's promises are spoken over us. A Blessing is a powerful way to help children know their value and worth in Christ. 

Invite the kids to form a circle to receive a group blessing. Encourage them to hold their hands in front of them, palms up, as you open a Bible and read Psalm 139:1–5:

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.

Finally, offer the following blessing over the each child:

May you always remember that God has a good plan for your life and that He is working to make His good plan happen. May you find peace in knowing He will lead you wherever you go. 

EXPLORE

God's people spent hundreds of years in Egypt. With the following activity, help your children discover a little about this country.


SUPPLIES:

Hydrographic Paper

Ben or marker


PREPARE AHEAD:

Print a copy of the Hieroglyphics chart for each child. Cut each sheet of paper into fourths. 


RELATE:

Invite each child to take a Hieroglyphics Chart, and a marker or two. Explain that the hieroglyphics are similar to the type of alphabet used by the ancient Egyptians many years ago. Encourage the kids to use the hieroglyphics to write secret messages to others in the group. When they’re done, the kids can trade papers and decode the notes. If time permits, invite children to create their own symbolic alphabet and write more mystery notes to trade with friends.
