  1. I’m a music director at an Episcopal Church and there are times when I get to lead the children during the service – something I love to do!

    I really enjoy your Dollar Store ideas. There is much inspiration here. Thank you so much for posting these online.

  2. Children’s messages are very important. Thank you for your time and effort with your videos. I tweek your messages to fit my children’s group, and they all love them so much. Thanking God for your life, and continue to be a maker of disciples for Christ. To God be the Glory!

  3. Pr. John,
    Thanks for this great, no-prop take on witnessing! This will work quite well, especially because I will be presiding at an infant Baptism this Sunday and can use this to link things together. The kids can be “witnesses” of what happens.

  4. Always great ideas from this site! This is my go to spot for children sermon ideas! I’m a lay leader and many times have referred to these posts for ideas! Thank you!

  5. Oh, my goodness. Thank you! You pulled my calf out of the fire. I couldn’t get a hold on Exodus 32 with the children, and you’ve struck just the right note. Buzz Lightyear or not.

  6. Any way to send a donation with a credit card? I don’t have paypal. I’m the minister at trinity United church in collingwood Ontario Canada. Love your work!

  8. I just found your blog and I love the videos and the ideas! I teach in our Parish School on Sunday’s at a Catholic Church in California and sometimes I am at a loss as to what to do with my 4th graders, you have inspired me! Thank you so much

    Many blessings

  9. I enjoy your insights and the inspirations they give me. The ideas I have used from here have been very well received. I love your star sticker idea and the God Positioning Star! Thank you for all you share and the work you put into this, it is an invaluable resource to me in my ministry.
