Teaching Communion to Children

Communion is a tricky subject to teach to 4-10 year olds. I think you have to start with your denomination's doctrine first. Once you have figured out what your church believes then you can begin teaching... To read the rest of this lesson, follow this link:


3) Teaching Communion to Children

In teaching communion to 4-10 year olds it seems to me that it should be kept as simple as possible. 

If they can hear about Jesus as the good shepherd who doesn't run away when the wolves come, who gave his life for the sheep, and can receive that he is the bread which came down from heaven and that in following his commandments causes us to suffer because of our weak nature at times, and finding ourselves falling short of what is required, we in that condition do partake of his suffering on the cross, and by that we later on find new life
in him. This walk is our way of life in Jesus and by partaking of the bread which represents his body and the juice or wine which represents his blood, we remember what manner of people we are and who his is and the life that is ours being connected to him.

I suppose it's not easy to keep simple. If children find it hard at times to obey their parents, parents also find things hard at times. We all need Jesus. 

Games Using the Bible

> I am trying to get some ideas for games to use for the youth at my church that would involve using their bibles

Bible Book Clues, Bible Names Scramble and Bible Jeopardy are great Bible games. You can find them listed in the Anytime Bible Games section at:

8) Holy Week Museum 

Last year I made a mini- museum of stuff for Holy Week. Such as a basket of flat bread and a cup with a picture of the last supper, a cross and nails, folded cloth bandages and a picture of the empty tomb. My kids loved it, and several adults did too!
