We spend about 3 months on gospel activities and Jesus’ ministry. There’s so much ideas and activities to cover in this that I had a hard time paring it down. I did split off the parable activities from the gospel activities because otherwise this page would become way too long.
I have separated out the Christmas Story from the rest of the gospel activities because that is a whole different subject area to my head.
Gospel Activities for kids
We start off our gospel activities with a John the Baptist lesson. We get to learn about the man who got Israel ready for Jesus’ ministry and see how everyone, even Jesus, needs to obey God.
This is a great lesson for kids who think they’re the only ones who ever had a problem with temptation. It shows that even Jesus was tempted, but he had the power to resist temptation. We also see the benefits of knowing scripture.
If you, or your kid, has ever thought Jesus can’t use me because I’m ordinary, this lesson will show you how God took 12 ordinary men and trained them to change the world.
Not all miracles are big and showy, sometimes they are small things. This lesson also shows us how God cares for the small things in life, like a groom being embarrassed at his wedding.
Not only does God care about the small details, but he cares if we are hungry. God cares for our physical needs.
Trust in God because he still loves us when we fail.
This story is a great example of the value of goods friends. It also shows God cares for our physical needs and can heal us.
God cares for our emotions, and He has control over life and death.
Jesus loves his friends and cares for them.
God loves the outcasts and takes the time to talk to them.
God cares for our suffering and heals us. I just love how ever and over God shows his care for our physical needs.
We can have two responses to Jesus, obedience or rebellion, which response will you choose?
Nicodemus meets Jesus at Night
It is not up to us to save ourselves. God has done all the work, and we can choose to follow him.
Jesus shows the lost how to find him.
I’ve also separated out the Easter story activities into their own page, so hop over there to check them out.
