Here’s a simple quiz we used along with a lesson about Jacob and Esau. This quiz seemed to help humanize Jacob and Esau so that our kids could better make practical applications from this vital story. We hope that it does the same for yours. If this resource has been helpful for you, please let us know in the comments!
Have you ever thought about making a children’s ministry blog but didn’t know where to start? If so, the series we are putting together on website building might be helpful for you! There are tons of tutorials out there about putting together web pages. However, we have heard from our friends in ministry that some of the existing tutorials start with a certain amount of assumed technical knowledge. So we’ve tried to break down the concepts and explain them clearly. If you decide to hop on the train to learn about website building, and you fall off the train at some point, just let us know in the comments where we lost you and we can possibly make a special video just for you to help you get back on track.
To access the first video, you can simply click on the video link above. If you’d like to watch the second video in the series, here is a link to the second episode. The first episode is called Domain Names & Hosting and the second episode is called Selecting and Uploading a WordPress Theme. We plan to add more videos to this series, so stay tuned!

Today we have a Jonah maze printable for you! We’re developing a free interactive iBook for children about the book of Jonah, and one of the assets that we created for the project was a Jonah-themed maze. We think this resource might be helpful for you if you are teaching about Jonah because it shows how Tarshish is in the opposite direction of where Jonah was supposed to be headed (to Nineveh). If you’d like to check out this resource, here is the link to the PDF:
We also have a .PNG version of the image below for you to preview. Thanks for visiting RemGen.org! Blessings to you and your ministry.

For You and Your Ministry
We have for you today a great crowd-starter or icebreaker. It’s a fun brain teaser called Johnny’s Mother. But since it’s much easier to show you how it works rather than describing it to you we’ve provided a video demonstration. Try not to read on until you watch the video above and can have an opportunity to try the riddle for yourself.
Today we would like to bring you a great game you can use in any children’s ministry context, be it a small-group session or a large group service like children’s church. It’s a simple take on rock-paper-scissors themed to the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den (from Daniel chapter 6). It works like so:
Two players stand back-to-back and choose one of three poses: Daniel’s praying hands, the angry fist of the governor, or the claws of the lion (see photos below).
On the count of three both players turn around and compare their poses.
Today we will be suggesting books that have NOTHING to do with children’s ministry! Yes, I know, it’s brilliant. So why, you may ask, are we suggesting books that are not related to children’s ministry? Well, for many reasons.
