1) Whose Armor Are You Wearing?

With so many ministries to admire, and spiritual mentors to turn to, it is common for people to emulate those who are "accomplished" and "successful." Although the accomplishments of others in ministry can serve as a testament of Godís faithfulness ó like the shepherd boy, David ó we must not put on someone elseís "armor"; especially when it does not fit. 

The Word of God teaches that we have been... To continue reading, Whose Armor Are You Wearing, an adult devotional, visit the following link:

2) December Outreach?

We are planning an outreach on December 11. We are going to advertise in the community for a "parents day out". Children from K-5th grade. Thought I would do all 4 sessions with different "Stars" in the biblical Christmas story each week -- Mary,
the Shepherds, the Wise Men, and even terrible King Herod who thinks he's the "Star"  -- with games and lunch in between. Any ideas on games for in between? We will be giving door prizes as well. The day should last from 9 AM to 5 PM.

3) High School Activities

> I teach high school students in Sunday School and I generally will have a cross-word puzzle or word-search
> puzzle for the students to complete at the end of each class session. What are some other fun activities 
> I can have the students do at the end of a lesson?

REPLY: There are lots of other puzzles they can do including some that require actually looking up the bible verse for the answer (You can create some for your specific lesson, or find them online). Having them work in teams gives a little competition and helps them to work together vs. one student 'giving away' the answers. Hangman type puzzles, scrambled word puzzles are also good. 

Using the current lesson (or previous ones) you could create a "Password" type game, or even a version of other popular games like Taboo (teammates guess the word, but the player has a card with certain words he can't say - ie - Noah, can't say flood, ark, water, - there's lots more they CAN say - ie dove, float, boat, etc.). 

Hope those help.

5) Skit With 3 Characters?

Our church is very small, maybe 25 members, most of them older adults. I have a Sunday School that varies from 2 to 8 each Sunday, various ages. What I need is a short Christmas program with just three characters. I have two high school students and one middle school age that attend pretty much every Sunday. Help! Thank you. =
