Christian Armor for Kids Curriculum
Is it really important that the children in your class learn to pray? Do they really need to put on the armor of God? I think both the armor of God and being a person of prayer are vital in light of current and future events.
Just as a turtle needs armor for protection, your children need the armor of God. But unlike the turtle, your children are not born with it. They have to put it on! As Christian educators it is our mission to help them see the vital importance the armor of God and prayer will make in their lives. We're convinced we can help you accomplish that goal with a children's church curriculum that is fun, meaty and easy to use. This children's ministry curriculum goes beyond fun, it provides a spiritual depth that children are really hungry to discover. We've deliberately kept the cost low so anyone can afford this exciting program designed this go beyond entertaining to training.
This children ministry curriculum contains drama skits. Mojo is a Gomer Pyle type character that wants to be in God's army, but he doesn't have any muscles. After the teacher convinces Mojo you don't need muscles to be in God's army, you just need to have Jesus in your heart, he is ready to sign-up! Each week he'll discover another piece of the armor from a viewpoint that is unique to Mojo. He heard the army was suppose to be a ball, so he brought his own. He thinks the breast plate of righteousness is a dinner plate. He insists he will never wear a girdle. You'll involve several of the kids in your class in the elite God Squad. Teach them to march, echoing the army cadence designed for this unit. Mojo never quite learns how to march, so he's constantly bumping into the group or the wall or worse, the Drill Sergeant. Watch the fun and laughter grow as Mojo is taught powerful lessons.
In this children ministry curriculum, you'll use true and amazing stories from Corrie Ten Boom's Hiding Place to illustrate these lessons. The Bible stories are not an afterthought, they are used to emphasis the truths necessary for today's child to be an over comer in life. These principals are clearly portrayed in the Bible lessons of David, the shepherd king and lover of God.
There is no one-size fits all children ministry curriculum. Every church, every class has specific needs and goals. There is ample resources in this unit for you to pick and choose according to your needs and tastes.
If you have activity centers you can let the children make and act out the Turtle Tune Skits. Let them make the simple turtle puppets and then sing along with a song or act out one of the skits. Turtles are an excellent example of protective armor and this Children's Church Curriculum has four. Tucker Turtle is the macho, muscle building type. Tucker, Tina and Tubby make up the singing trio called Turtle Tunes. Use them each week for the musical specials of your choice. Telle wants to join the Turtle Tunes, but the group doesn't want one more member. Telle learns the importance of prayer and finding God's will. He discovers the right motives for service. Use the simple patterns in the book to make the black light sock creations.
