One year's worth of sermons for pastors and children's ministry leaders to teach children about God and the Bible. Each lesson highlights a specific Bible verse and provides an insightful children's message complete with suggestions for easy-to-find visual props for object lessons.
Children's Sermons to Go is a collection of 52 sermons for children. Each sermon first gives a Bible verse and then illustrates that verse with a short anecdote. Each sermon lists easy-to-find household materials the preacher or worship leader can bring to give a visual demonstration that illustrates the truths presented in the sermon. The distinguishing feature of this sermon collection, however, is the small, inexpensive gifts or trinkets - mementos - that each child carries away from the children's sermon, thus giving the children a concrete object that helps them remember the message given in that day's children's sermon.
