Hey families!

Welcome to our Church of Christ Kids Corner!

Each week we are gathering resources here to help engage your whole family in our Sunday morning live stream service.

Starting February 13, 2022, the stories here will follow along with the same stories kids are learning at our in-person Sunday School classes each week. Check in here for Bible story videos, fun worship songs, activity pages, and ideas to engage with the story as a family.

And if it ever works for you to join us in person, we’d love to see you at 10am at our Highland Park or Mission Heights sites!

This Week…

Welcome kids!  This week we sit back and hear another story from the great storyteller: Jesus.  Do you remember what the stories that Jesus used to teach people are called?  They are called PARABLES.

On one occasion, Jesus was invited to eat at the house of a very important Pharisee.  Jesus noticed how all the guests picked the places of honor at the table.  Jesus told them that it is important to include EVERYONE and treat them all with honor.  Jesus then began to teach them about the Kingdom of God and how everyone is invited.  But who will come and who won’t?  Watch this week’s video below to hear the parable He told!

Get up, sing and move along!

Memory Verse Games and Activities

We’ve collected some fun games and activities to help with memorizing verses below.  You can even create your own activity pages!

  1. Erase a Word—Write the memory verse on a whiteboard. Erase the verse a word at a time, each time asking the children to say the verse.
  2. Write each word of the memory verse on a slip of paper. Children must place the slips in the correct order.  For an additional challenge, hide the papers around the room.  As children find them they can being to place them in the correct order.
  3. Write the first letter of each word of the memory verse on a whiteboard or piece of paper. Children then try to write the verse.
  4. Ping Pong—A child calls out the first phrase of a verse, then someone else calls back the second phrase, and so forth.
  5. Make a word search using all the words in the verse. (Easily create a word search you can print, play online, and share with friends here: Word Search Maker )
  6. Hot Potato—Sit on the floor across from each other or in a circle, depending on how many are playing. The first child says the first word of the verse and rolls a ball to anyone in the circle. The child receiving the ball says the second word of the verse and so on.
  7. Picture It—Have the children write the verse, drawing as many pictures for the words as possible.
  8. Double up with printing or cursive handwriting practice by creating templates of the verses for children to copy.  Worksheet Works has an easy generator that can create worksheets for any stage your child is at.
