Bible Skits for Children's Ministry


1) It's ROCK-tober 

Time to reflect on the avalanche of God's love and his ROCK steady goodness! This October, let us focus on Scripture that points us to the ROCK of our salvation. Click the link below to find a few "ROCK" verses to get you started. You may want to provide concordances and Bibles for children to look up more ROCK-tober verses! Challenge them to find one ROCK verse for each day of the month that refers to God being our strength, our stronghold, our sure foundation, etc., and then choose one verse to memorize during the month of October! 

Get the ROCK-tober Bible verses.



2) Christmas Skits

Good morning could you please tell me how I could order one of your Christmas skits. I would like to use it for our Church Christmas program this year. Thank you and have a wonderful day

--from SSTN: Hi Dwayne, the Christmas Skits in our website are from the free resources we provide, which by the way is made possible in part by our wonderful Support Partners! Before printing, please do see our copyright / permissions page too.

God's blessings!

3) Halloween Outreach

Many Christians object to celebrating Halloween, and understandably so. However, can you think of any other day in the year that brings a bunch of kids, who you don't know, directly to your front door? Therefore, why not use this holiday as an opportunity to share God's love with them? We've got several Halloween tracts that you can print and distribute (with candy of course), to the children who come knocking! You may find them on our Gospel Tracts Halloween Outreach page. 

And if YOU have an outreach idea, please share it here on SSTN!

4) Jack O'Lantern Poem

I am a Jack O Lantern
My lights will shine so bright
For Im a Christian pumpkin
My symbols tell whats right

My nose is like the cross
On which our Savior died
To set us free from sin
We need no longer hide

My mouth is like a fish
The whole wide world to show
That Christians live in this house
And love their Savior so!

The story starts at . . .

Jack O' Lantern Poem.
