Introduction

The most important aspect of Christian education isn’t skits, crafts, or games. It’s the conversation between leader and student that is most important. It’s the leader’s explanation of what the Bible says, ability to answer students’ questions about things related to scripture, and ability to listen to how students are doing in their spiritual growth that makes the biggest difference in Christian education. Let it be clear right now that no skit, craft, or game can make up for the actual verbal conversation between leaders and their students. However there are many types of activities that can help support or even help begin those positive spiritually-based conversations. This is the mind set to have when reading this book.

The book you are holding in your hands is designed to share tested and well-received skits, games, and craft activities aimed at elementary school age children in church-based programs. In addition: there are also several brief devotionals for both leaders and students. The vision behind creating this book however is not to present church leaders with a full-fledged season’s worth of curriculum. Rather, the goal behind this book is to present church leaders with additional and alternative activities to their already existing curriculum. While this book will not show favor to any major publishers that provide churches with curriculum, it is recommended that church leaders are always open to pulling new creative ideas from multiple sources rather than just one publisher (including leaders trying to simply come up with their own original ideas).

Another thing that should be made clear before reading any further into this book is what kind of perspective someone should have while teaching about what the Bible says to children in a church or Christian organization setting. Any organization that is dedicated to the Christian education of children, should be in the business of building positive relationships between leaders and students, and should always be using the most creative activities possible to teach children and inspire them to become amazing God serving adults. This is to be accomplished through creating a learning atmosphere that is highly entertaining (through the use of skits and other forms of entertainment art), creating activities that challenge students to carry out lessons that they have recently learned (such as collaborative craft activities and games that push students to work well together and contribute to a greater cause), and having an opportunity to discuss Biblical scripture with students through the use of bringing up topics with the class body and allowing students an opportunity to ask questions and/or speak on something they already know about related to scripture.

One of the most important perspectives that is to be upheld by an organization dedicated to the Christian education of children is that an opportunity to impact the lives of children isn’t a smaller, less important thing; it's the most important kind of opportunity there is and ever will be. The important thing to remember about children is that they don't stay children for very long. Keep talking long enough, and you're talking to adults. And the lives of those future adults can be changed by what you do with the opportunity you have with the children around you now. Taking just a little bit of time out of every day you're given with children to consistently teach them lessons directed specifically at them about true values and what real love is, can turn the tables of a future marriage or a growing relationship with God. In a church or Christian-based setting, a program designed for children shouldn't be more simple, stupid, down-played, or taken less seriously than a program for adults. It should be better. Just that. Better.

Chapter 1 - Skits

Important Key When Reading Skits:

Bolded Words Indicate New Character Who Has Just Entered

*An important piece of information to note in the skit plans you are about to read is that the majority of the skits are not scripts, but merely outlines to stories with the intention that well skilled actors will simply be able to use improvisation to make up the appropriate amount of dialogue in order to get the skit moving along.

A Sticky Sin Chair Skit

Theme - Forgiveness

*This skit involves using a narrator. The other present actors will not talk when the narrator does but will improv their dialogue when the narrator is not talking.

-Narrator: There once was a boy whose name was Johnny B. Goode. Johnny B. Goode wasn’t exactly the type of boy a teacher at school would describe as a trouble maker… although he had made some mistakes in his life. However
