Teach Kids About God Using the Fall Season
Fall is finally here, or as some of my friends like to call it, pumpkin spice season. Fall is a special time of year. The weather starts cooling down, school schedules are set in place, and some fun activities are around the corner. I personally love the first chilly morning and the first whiff of smoke from the wood-burning furnace. I also love fall because there are some great ways to use this season to teach kids about God. Today, I have three fall-themed activities you can do with kids that will teach them more about the creator of this great season.
Teach Kids Why We Go to In-Person Sunday School
For some people, it’s hard enough to get back to church in person let alone go to Sunday school too! But if your family isn’t going to Sunday school, let me tell you why you’re missing out.
Teach Kids Why We Attend In-Person Church
Even though COVID restrictions have lifted, some people are having a hard time getting back to church. We got comfortable staying in our PJs and watching something online and having more time for ourselves on Sunday.
When I was four years old my mom opened our home to a Good News Club®. Though Mom was not saved, she would sit in the club each week and listen as the lesson was taught. One day after club I told my mom I wanted to be saved. My unsaved mom led me to the Lord, repeating what she had heard in club each week. Soon after that Mom was saved too. Today there are about 15 different family members in some form of Christian ministry—pastor, missionary, etc.
When I was only three, I was led to the Lord by my brother who’d been trained in a Teaching Children Effectively courseTM. A couple of years later I started going to 5-Day Club® and Good News Club® then attended Christian Youth in Action® (CYIATM) and began teaching at age 12. After six fruitful years of summer ministry as a student and one as staff, I was excited to be called into the ministry full time and be following God’s path for my life.
I started to attend Good News Club® in Sioux City, Iowa when I was about four years old. My older brother went, and I liked to go along. I so clearly remember our teacher, dear Mrs. Dora Lock and her helper Betty Ritchie. She had GNC® in the basement of her home. I remember the day she had the lesson on the crucifixion like it was yesterday. She talked about how Jesus died to pay the price for our sins and all we had to do was believe on Him and accept His free gift. I was ready to accept him that day! I attended for several years and the Scripture that I memorized and the songs we sang have stuck with me to this day. I am forever grateful for my time spent in GNC and am loving being part of it again.
