Kid's Ministry this morning

I'm taking the Pre-Kindergarten class this morning in Church. I'm looking forward to it. I do it, in part, because Jesus commands us; in part, so the other teachers know that someone on staff knows what its like in the Children's program; and in part, because I'm a parent, and we want all parents to be involved.

I've got The Little Man and The Little Lady in class today.

Hope they behave!

So how did it go?

rd --

They did behave, which is good!

We did Moses as a baby, which is quite a gripping story. The lesson wasn't Christological (the point was 'God cares about us'), so I had to 'tell them a secret' -- that 'years later, God cared for and protected another baby, and that baby grew up to save not only his people, but people from every nation. His name...?'

And I had a chorus of answers...

But it was fun. We played 'hide the baby' (no real babies were used in the game.)

Thanks for asking.

Sounds great. I was chatting with AB the other day about how important I think it is for ministers to occasionally to children's ministry things to show others, (and sometimes themselves) that children and children's ministry is valuable. Bit of a HH of mine I reckon!

Glad your children behaved, I bet they were very excited to have you teach them.

Ruth,

We played 'hide the baby' as a concrete way of thinking about Moses in the reeds. The kids had to block their eyes; the leaders then hid a little baby doll; and then gave the kids a clue as to the whereabouts of said baby; and they go find it.

Fun.

My wife asked The Little Man if it was Baby Moses that they were finding. He replied: "No. It was a girl baby."

Good point.
