…from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:15 (ESV)


THE SALVATION POEM (MUSIC VIDEO)

Take it to the next level:

  • For young children: Consider teaching the song to them so they can sing along
  • For older children (readers): Consider giving them a Pocket Testament of their own. In the back, they will find the salvation poem and can sing along by reading the words.


Why am I here?

YOUR STORY

Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? How can my life have purpose? Find out in this simple whiteboard presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Take it to the next level:

  • For older children (readers): Do you have an artist in your home or group? Consider asking them to draw a series of simple drawings to the Salvation Poem above. Then, talk about how they can share their drawings as they share the Gospel.


How can I memorize Scripture?

Scripture Memory

Psalm 119:11 reads, "Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee." But how can I hide God’s word in my heart? Jack Lannom, speaker and author, created steps for remembering things. See how he "visualizes" The 10 Commandments to make them easier to remember.

Take it to the next level:

  • For all children: For all children: Use these FLASH CARDS to learn the 10 Commandments.
  • For older children (readers):
    1. Talk about why it’s important to memorize scripture.
    2. Talk about why the 10 Commandments are important to us. (Remember, the Old Testament points to our need for a Savior and the coming of the Messiah.)
    3. Choose a verse (like John 3:16) and make your own flash cards for scripture memory.


SHARING POCKET TESTAMENTS

Extinction

Psalm 90:12 tells us, “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” This humorous video encourages us to share the Word of God…before it’s too late.

Extinction

What do you carry so that you’ll always be prepared to share God’s Word?

Take it to the next level:

  • For older children (readers), ask them what reasons they think Christians have for not sharing the Gospel? Consider having them script their own “dino” video on why we should share the Gospel. We’d love to see it!

How can I involve older children?

Older children may have a desire to share God’s Word through pocket testaments but feel afraid. FEARLESS is a wonderful series to teach older children – and adults – why we share and how we can share and be FEARLESS. Each lesson includes a 1 - 2 minute video to watch, a lesson to review and a challenge.

Have you ever wondered what the best Bible verses might be for sharing your faith? We found a few that cut right to the heart of the gospel message. You'll find them in the How to Share section of our web site.
