The next it Bible Curriculum series I am writing is called RIDDLE ME THIS! It will be about the strange sayings of Jesus, including: The least will be the greatest? Water that is alive? Love your enemies? Lose your life to find it? It will be filed with RIDDLES and PUZZLES! So, send me your favorite RIDDLE, JOKE (that is a riddle) or verbal puzzle and I might just use it! OR POST TO THIS FACEBOOK THREAD THANKS! Pastor Karl
The Ultimate Jesus Action Figure! A friend of mine made this, Cristopher Osorino, and sent me pictures. Y’all know I created Toyboxtales.com and have DVD’s of Bible Stories told with action figures and newer ones on PastorKarl.com – but this was just so amazing. Here is his Here’s is hia “recipe” if anyone is willing to make me one: (Note the wounds on his hands and feet.) From Hasbro Marvel Legends: – Namor the Sub-Mariner (body) – Malekith (hair) From DC Multiverse – White Knight Azrael And the tunic he has I got from some old McFarlane figure from spawn or something. The fore there is from a power Rangers Sphinx but that’s just like, extra, not really necessary. The white night comes with a good flame already I just liked this one more. If someone wants to make this, I’ll pay for it!
I just created a FUN on screen word puzzle to get kids talking about biblical phrases. Put the phrases on screen and see if the kids can figure them out. You can download high resolution 16:9 images or a PDF version to print. An answer key is also provided. Here are a few SAMPLES: See them all and download at: Kidology.org/hiddenmessages
A super cool Magic Trick / Object Lesson that illustrates why sometimes God says no to our plans. He has a bigger plan! THE EFFECT: You show a piece of paper that says MY PLAN on it and describe how sometimes you go to God with YOUR PLAN and God rejects it! You then RIP UP THE PAPER in front of the kids. But as you talk about how sometimes God rejects our plan because He has a bigger better plan, you slowly unfold the ripped up paper to reveal a completely restored LARGER paper with no tears any more that says GOD’S PLAN! It is the classic Torn and Restored Paper illusion with a new application! PRESENTATION VIDEO: Watch the explanation video and download templates to do the illusion at: Kidology.org/myplangodsplan
Finally got to update my Kids Church set! I’ve been using a blackboard wall and some curtains for two years while I saved up to be able to finally build what I wanted. We call our kids church The Outpost because I want the kids to know that church isn’t the destination in our faith, it is only where we get trained and equipped, the Adventure is out there in the world during the week. We’re in Colorado, so we love the outdoors and the mountains, so our entire ministry is themed that way, Basecamp for Nursery, Scramblers for 2-3’s, Explorers for 4-5’s among others. But back to The Outpost! Here is a time lapse of the first day: Then it was time to get to finish it! We had only two days to completely build it to kick off on Sunday! Some of our goals were: TV Monitors so no more turning out the lights every time we needed to show something on the screen via projector. A stage door for actors to come and go. A puppet window for puppet guests. Places for fun props out of reach of curious fingers. A cool entrance – the…
