At our church we have an annual Easter Egg hunt that brings in our families as well as people from the community. Part of this hunt is a short worship service. During this time we sing songs and have fun and I like to show a short video that tells the story of Easter. This is the video that we will be using this year. It does a really good job of sharing the story on a kid level. If you are looking for a resource for your Easter or Good Friday service be sure to check this one out!
This is a little long and a bit rough, but I think it would be a great way to open a Good Friday worship service. Bring your lights down, play some soft music in the background and deliver this more as poem than sermon.
At our Winter Overnight a couple of days ago we did a time where we set up prayer stations. One of those stations you will find below. It used sand as a way to help students realize they were making impressions on the people around them. I didn’t want to make a mess with real sand so I got some kinetic sand. Let me tell you this stuff is amazing! Check out my video below. It is now my favorite desk toy.
So something a little sillier. Here is the text of the prayer station. I set up two bowls of kinetic sand for them to make impressions in.
Read Acts 1:8
Right before He went back to live in Heaven, Jesus commanded his followers to take His truth around the world. Your life is affecting the lives of those around you. As you move through your days and weeks you are leaving marks that others can see. You are impacting the people around you for eternity, but are you impacting them for good or for evil? Are you pointing them toward God or away from Him?
Spend a moment making impressions in the sand. As you press the sand notice how you leave your fingerprints. In the same way as you move through your life you are leaving your prints on the people around you. As you make impressions in the sand ask God to mold your life into one that points people towards Him.
To continue this act of commitment, choose one of your classes at school. On the back of this sheet write the names of all the people in that class. As you write their names pray for each person. Pray that God will help them see the truth about who He is and that He will use you to make an impact in their lives.
It is FINALLY here. You can pick up the complete Faithcraft package by following the link below.
I am re-teaching Faithcraft at our church so while I am doing that I am redoing the videos and such and making them a little more useful for you guys. I am adding 2 more weeks and changing the order of the weeks a bit. I am also making 3 video devotions for each week that will be online. I will try to include a copy of the script when I finish the full package. Until then check out these 3 new videos below. Also, I am wondering if people would be willing to donate some money to help me finish putting this package together. I have fixed the donate link in the sidebar and I have in my head a way that people who want to get the study for free can have it and those who are willing to pay can have it too. Please let me know in the comments if you would like to pay now to have the final process sped up.
