Children's stories for Sunday morning worship

Stories

Worship with kids should be wholehearted, adventurous and fun! The worship stories on this blog were designed to make preparation for Sunday morning simple, so you can put all of your energy into the actual adventure of leading kid's worship. Each lesson speaks to multiple ages, takes 15-20 minutes to prepare and uses props that can be found around your house.

Keep in mind, these stories are written the way the writer would tell them. Like all good stories, these were meant to evolve as they are told, so don't feel like you have to share exactly what is on the screen. We all have unique perspectives on life that can speak to children. Share yours!

Children have a lot to learn in their lifetimes, but it is never too early to begin to teach others what they do know. At times, children will know more than even the adults around them, just as Jesus did in the temple, when he was 12. All of us have…

All of us have giants in our lives that try to intimidate us with big voices and large weapons. We don’t have to be big and strong to defeat them, though. We just have to have great hearts and a good relationship with God.

My son asked me "How do I know God is there?" What a tricky question to answer. I remembered this story from Exodus, one of my favorite as a child. God gave the Israelites tangible ways to see Him and know he was with them all the time. Sometimes the signs…

The world is a messy place. At times, from our earthly perspective, it looks like there aren’t any solutions to all of the problems that happen to us and the people around us, but God has a much bigger perspective. If we could see with His eyes, we would…
