Fall Sermon Notes for Kids: How can you help kids feel welcome in an adult service?
Let’s face it: It’s hard for kids to pay attention in a service geared towards adults.
You want to welcome families and children into the adult worship service at your church.
You want the kids to feel included in the service.
But, you also need the kids to be relatively quiet. (You know the visiting family that shows up with the bin full of loud, clanking plastic toys, super noisy snacks, and the child who asks in a stage whisper when the service will be done every 3 minutes. You know who I’m talking about… And, quite frankly, I’ve been that mom, too!)
Sermon Notes for Kids
Sermon Notes are a great way to welcome kids into your adult service. They also offer parents a simple solution to help them keep their kids quietly occupied and engaged.
This Fall Sermon Notes Page prints double sided. On the first page, there is a simple “Today I” checklist designed to help your kids prepare their hearts for worship. (I also love to throw in random and funny things – did you remember to wear your shoes?)
It also includes a “This Week” section to be completed later. This section has simple questions to help your kids review what they heard in the sermon later in the week.
The back of the page includes a place for your kids to write the sermon notes. They can also write down the main characters in the the sermon. Finally, your kids can write down two things that they learned in the sermon.
Your child can also write down a couple of questions or things they may not have understood from the sermon.
Finally, a word bank gives the kids words to listen for in the sermon.
Ushers can hand this fall sermon notes page to children as they go into the auditorium. Teachers can give it to children after the Sunday School class. Greeters can give it to families as they come through the church welcome center.
When your someone in your church gives these sermon notes pages to a visiting family, you are saying, “We welcome your family into our service. We care about you and your kids!”
