As Kids Ministers, we all have had the last minute texts, phone calls and emails of a leader notifying us that they will not be at church to teach due to a sick child, etc. Many times we send out multiple texts searching for an “approved volunteer” to cover the class. Often there is little to no time for the volunteer to prepare a lesson.
We desire to intentionally lay spiritual foundations every time kids attend our church. By providing Emergency Bible Skills Kits in our ministry area, we provide instant teaching activities that allow spiritual foundations to be laid.
Here are some things that I have chosen to put in my Emergency Bible Skill Kit:
Foam Numbered Cube (Dollar Tree)
Books of the Bible Bookmarks
Colored index cards
List of Bible Skill Games and teaching instructions
You can download the list of games that I have in my box.
Tip 1: You may want to create a couple of these activities ahead of time for your volunteers so that they are ready to go when they open the box.
Tips 2 – Many of these Bible Skills activities also can be adapted to teach/review the Bible Story.
What would you include in your Emergency Bible Skills kit?
