For today’s post we have a Bible verse game that we recently read about at HopeinGod.org. For this game, you will need to find a church member that will record your memory verse before the church service begins. During church, you will play the recording of the memory verse spoken by the “Mystery Voice” and the children have to guess who is the speaker.
For added difficulty in a smaller church setting, we suggest using character voices while reading the Bible verses. If you try this out in your church, please let us know what worked or didn’t work for you in the comments! Thanks for checking out our blog today here at RemGen. May God bless you and your ministry to children!
Things have been a bit of a whirlwind since we moved to Illinois! But we do have some (hopefully) exciting news. We’ve decided to switch our video hosting over to YouTube so that our content would be more easily indexed and searchable. We still plan to use Vimeo for when we create a video that churches might want to download and use for various purposes. But we hope that the switch to YouTube will help us connect with more children’s ministers and begin tailoring our content to our viewers/readers. As for our blog, in September we are planning to update our website theme so that it will be mobile friendly for the first time (in forever).
Speaking of Frozen (you see what we did there), I found in my e-mail a link to a free unFrozen Christmas program (normally a $25 value) through Children’s Ministry Deals. You can click here to see if the deal is still available. The website says that the deal will only be available for a limited time.
We’re starting a new adventure in life as well as on our blog. Recently we (the writers for this blog) packed our bags to move from Johnson City, Tennessee to our new home state of Illinois.
Here in Illinois we are serving as children’s pastors at a small but growing church called “Living Stones Church of God.” This church is located in the city of Carlyle which has approximately 3,281 residents. We’re told that for a while, many community members wondered if the church was closed. But then when a sign was put up in front of the church more residents realized that it was open.
With autism spectrum disorder rates continually on the rise, we as children’s ministry leaders should equip ourselves with knowledge about the disorder; seeking out information that teaches us how to support autistic children within our ministries as well as their families. Interestingly enough, one way that we can potentially support autistic children and their families is through technology. Technology has even gone so far as to give some autistic children a voice for the first time in their life. As a disclaimer, the apps listed in this article are not free apps, but we believe that having knowledge about them is important.
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.
Greetings! Today we are excited to announce the launch of a brand new ministry: Remnant Generation or RemGen for short. We’re sure that you’re just brimming with curiosity concerning what RemGen is and what it has to do with you, dear reader.
