Cheering on Jesus

Buckeye Bible Buddies met for their January meeting on Thursday, January 19th.  (Reminder:  Bible Buddies will now be held on the third Thursday of the month)

When the children entered the church, they were greeted with a balloon arch and a cheering squad to get them excited about attending Children’s Church.


The meeting started off with the cheerleader’s getting the children involved in a few cheers about Jesus before prayer requests were given in.  When all the prayer requests had been heard, the children, cheerleaders, Caleb, and Sandra all gathered around the alter to pray for those requests.

Caleb started off the lesson by asking the children how Christians cheer on Jesus.  He told the kids there are a number of ways a Christian can cheer on Jesus– telling others what He has done for them or praising Him during a church service, just to name a few.  Caleb then asked Jesus to come out and greet the kids.  Jesus was able to “heal” Cayden’s leg, which he later thanked Jesus for.

Last Sunday, Sandra had a couple special quests help teach a lesson on “words” to the Primary class.

Sandra started off by asking the children if they knew the definition of “word”.  If you’ve never really thought about it, defining “word” is a pretty hard task to do.  The Primary Class had a difficult time trying to explain to Sandra what it actually meant.  After a few minutes of repeating “word” over and over and trying to pass that off as the definition (and a fit of giggles), then Sandra brought in three special guests, Tracy, Lacy, and Stacey, to teach the children what the Bible has to say about words.


The scriptures tell us the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  There are many, many scriptures in the Bible that tells us which words we should keep out of our mouths and which words we can use to help someone and lift someone up. Continue reading “Word!”

Warm the Heart

Since we’re in the middle of winter (well, supposed to be in the middle of winter…), Sandra used the cold weather as an opportunity to teach her class about staying warm.

No, not staying physically warm.  But instead, keeping our Christian hearts warm.

To do this, Sandra showed the class a pair of gloves and a pair of mittens.  She had a couple of the kids put the gloves and mittens on their hands and after a few minutes, asked the kids which one of their hands were the warmest. Continue reading “Warm the Heart”

Happy New Year!

For many people, a new year brings around New Year’s resolutions.  Most of us know that a  New Year’s resolution is simply a goal or a promise to ourselves that we are going to do something different in the New Year, whether that is lose weight, travel more, or learn a new language.

Sandra used New Year’s Day as an opportunity to teach the Primary Class about making resolutions, or promises, for Jesus.  Sandra explained to the kids that the promises we make to God are promises that we should do everything in our power to keep.  These are promises that we should not break.  She asked the kids what kinds of resolutions they might make in order to improve their Christian walk.

Go to church more. Continue reading “Happy New Year!”
