The WORD: A six-session Bible Game Series

Session One Objective: to understand and memorize—in abbreviated form—John 1:1-14.

When you think of beginnings, what comes to mind? (Receive answers. eg. Beginning of summer, new jobs, vacations, school, etc.) In the Bible are two very important events that tell of beginnings. Can you guess the first one? (“In the beginning God created….”)

The second one is very similar to the first, and is the one we will learn about and memorize over the next several weeks.

Say the verse, and then have children repeat one phrase at a time.

1) “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
2) Through him, all things were made…nothing was made without him,
3) but the world did not know him…even so, some people followed him.
4) To them he gave the right to become children of God.
5) The Word became a human being and lived on earth.” John 1:1-14

Play Vanishing Words (included with purchase)

Discuss and Discover

The first part of John 1 speaks of the beginning, the Word and God. What was there at the beginning? (The Word) What is a word? (A word—written or spoken—expresses or represents a thought or idea) What or whom was the Word with? (God) Who was the Word? (God)

Play Bible Bumpers  (included with purchase)

Our six-session Bible game lessons are included with the purchase of Bible Games Explosion.

I was intrigued with the Amazing Parable Race description [and purchased it]. It allows me to add another resource to my "bag of tricks" for very little additional cost . . . huge plus! I have many of your resources and appreciate the quality of the materials you provide. For a broadly graded class, I find I can easily reach the youngest and the oldest (Preschool through 5th grade) children. Thank you! ~ Lauren F.

We used the Parables of Jesus as a starting point for our neighborhood kids Bible study and adapted the lessons to suit our needs. The lessons provided fun and easy ways to teach the parables. ~ Michle

We have a very small church (28 to 30 people total on average) and it is hard to find programs to do for VBS. So when I went looking for something that I could do with a group of kids, the Prayer of Jesus stood out. There are six, two-hour lessons and we did a lesson a day. The book has game and craft ideas to go with each lesson. . . . I am already looking into buying more books from Sunday School Network. I feel that learning to pray together as a group, a family, we have grown even closer to God. ~ Thank you, April G.

[The teacher's newsletter]
is an awesome resource for anyone that works with kids! You never know what will come from it. I met a new friend in South Africa and the Lord is doing a great outreach there---so many children have been reached and so many teachers trained and given resources, and it started with this connection. ~ PTL for this site.

Wise & Foolish Builder
Sundae Food Devotion

food devotionAs we've been discussing this past semester, Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount so his children would know how to live in his kingdom. He likened those who obey his teachings to wise builders, because they are building their lives on a sure foundation, which is Jesus. And those who do not follow his teachings are like foolish builders who build their lives on sand, those things in life that are not sure, earthly treasures such as money, health, and possessions are temporary and can be taken away. Jesus wants his children to store up heavenly treasures that are eternal.

Today we're going to build ice cream sundaes to remember to build our lives on Jesus, the solid Rock.

Where will you spend eternity?

Are you going to heaven?

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas.  Thank you so much!  ~ Another sister in Christ,
Mable D.
