Children’s Sunday Sermon
February 4, 2018
Good morning girls and boys. Do you talk to God? We can think of ourselves as talking to God when we say our bedtime prayers. That’s one of the times we ask God for things — like watching over members of our family or helping people who are sick to get well. And that is like a conversation with God. But did you ever think that God is talking to us, always? Well, He is. But the problem is most of the time we’re not really listening. God is always there to tell us what to do — if we just listen. Try listening to God and He will let you know in your heart what to do.

But God also wants us to be good listeners with other people — and that’s not always easy. It’s not just when they are talking to us. We can also listen to them by trying to understand how they are feeling — if they need help, or extra attention, or just someone to be a friend to. That’s listening with your heart, the way God wants us to.

Good morning boys and girls. We all like to take walks, don’t we, especially if the walk takes us to someplace nice. Some of you may have walked on the beach alongside that big beautiful ocean. And I guess all of us like walking in the park.

Once there were four men who went on a walk together through the woods. Because there were so many big trees all around them, they couldn’t see very far ahead. That’s why they were surprised when they saw a high wall in front of them. They all had the same idea: “Let’s see what is on the other side.” So they found some heavy branches that had fallen from the trees and they built a ladder.

The first man to climb to the top of the ladder looked over the wall and he saw the most beautiful flowers he had ever seen. And there were all kinds of beautiful trees with all sorts of fruits growing on them. Seeing all that beauty, the first man just couldn’t wait so he jumped right in. The second man climbed the ladder and did the same. So did the third man.

When the fourth man got to the top of the ladder, he wanted to jump right in also. But then he thought of his family and friends. And instead of jumping right in he went down the ladder to tell them about the beautiful land on the other side of the wall. He wanted to share that good news with them.

The Lord Jesus brings us Good News about how much God loves us. And when He does, He tells us not to keep it to ourselves (like a secret) but to share God’s love with our families and friends and neighbors.

And will they love you for doing that? Of course, they will!

Good morning boys and girls. On this Sunday we begin the religious season that members of our Christian family call “Lent.” This special season actually began four days ago on “Ash Wednesday,” and will last for forty days, ending on Easter Sunday. But what does the word Lent mean to us?

The season of Lent is a time of “repentance.” We’ve talked about this word before. To repent is to admit things we have done wrong, ask for God’s forgiveness, and then decide to change so we won’t do those wrong things again. This sounds easy, doesn’t it? We all know when we do something wrong, don’t we? We all know how to say we are sorry. The really hard part for all of us is to change — that means to change the wrong behavior.

You may have heard some adults say, “I gave up coffee for Lent,” or “I gave up sweets for Lent.” Giving up something you really like — making a sacrifice — can help to be a reminder during Lent. Every time someone thinks of that thing that they miss, they remember the meaning of this season — that Lent can be difficult because it is a time to be sorry for the wrongs we have done and to try to change and do right!

Girls and boys here’s a funny way for you to remember this message. If you LENT your friend 50¢ for lunch yesterday, and tomorrow he brings you a dollar, you would owe him some CHANGE!

Lent is a time for Change! Because to “Repent” means that first, we must be sorry for doing wrong, and then we must change, so we will do better in the future.

Now you know what is expected of you and of all members of our Christian family during the season of Lent — and you have from now until Easter, not to just think about it, but to actually change for the better.

Children’s Sunday Sermon
February 25, 2018
Good morning girls and boys! I’m sure all of you know Rev. ________, the Pastor of our Church. As the spiritual leader of our Church family, Rev. ________ has certain things that God has asked for. What are some of those things that Rev.____ has been asked to do?

That’s right. Rev. ________ conducts our Church services and preaches the sermon each Sunday. What else?

That’s right, Rev. _______ visits church members when they are sick or are in need. And of course, when someone from our Church gets married, Rev. _____ conducts the ceremony. These are all a part of Rev. _______’s ministry. Rev. ____ _, like all ministers, is someone who has been asked by God to do His work here on earth. And remember, the most important work God has asked all of us to do is to Love one another as He has loved us.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? That’s right — in a way, all of us — all members of our Christian family are like ministers. God expects us — every one of you girls and boys — to do His work here on earth. And you already know what some of those works are — being kind to your friends, helping others, listening with your hearts, obeying your parents and teachers, and most of all — to show your brothers and sisters, mother and father, teachers, friends and neighbors how much you care about them as members of your Christian family.

That’s being a minister of God. Now this week, as you go to school and spend time with your family and friends, remember what an important job God has given you! It’s the most important job of all!
