  • Object Lessons For Children

    $9.50

    Jesus used object lessons: a fig tree, a coin, a child. He spoke of taking an axe to a tree, entering in at a narrow gate, and letting our light shine like a candle. Comparisons and contrasts to everyday objects illustrate many Bible truths.

    Object Lessons for Children offers forty object lessons to help you capture children’s attention and communicate truth. In addition to instructions, each lesson plan includes verses to consider and practical applications. If you ever are called upon to share a Bible lesson with a group of children, this handy resource provides you with ready-made lessons to use or inspiration to create your own.

  • What God Is Doing

    $19.99

    Old Testament Object Lessons for Kids

    Many adults today don’t know how Old Testament biblical characters fit into the big picture. They don’t understand why God does what He does. There is a generation of biblically illiterate people in our churches. Our children need to understand how God’s plan relates to them today!

    What God is Doing is Anne Marie Gosnell’s guide to teaching children from the Old Testament, with 26 interactive Bible object lessons that create a fun and engaging atmosphere while teaching Biblical truth.
    Discover why the Old Testament is so important

    The Old Testament depicts how God brought about His plan of salvation. God worked through imperfect people and used a nation as a channel to provide a way of forgiveness and salvation for all of mankind.

    Children will not understand why Jesus is a big deal, until they understand that the events from the Garden of Eden were a big deal.

    Scripture quotations taken from the NASB (New American Standard Bible).

    We want children to groan when reading time is over because they want to learn more!

    Learning God’s Word should be delightful and memorable, engaging to our children, with Bible lessons that challenge and enhance their spiritual development and growth!
    What is a Bible Object Lesson?

    A Bible object lesson uses a common item to tie together Biblical truth and life application. Items can include tangible hand-held objects, pictures, science experiments, and drama.

    When Jesus taught He used object lessons: a mustard seed, the birds, the lilies of the field, a storm…

    If Jesus used object lessons, then perhaps we should use them, too.
    How to Use This Book

    Each lesson includes a scripture reference, object lesson, Bible lesson, and life application section. The simple lessons tell you exactly what to do, what questions to ask, and how to apply the Bible truth to the lives of your children.

    Perfect for HOME, Sunday School, Awana, small groups, homeschool, or Children’s Ministry.

  • Preaching In Pictures

    $19.99

    How often do poets, advertisers, and movie makers influence Sunday sermons? Perhaps these image experts have much to offer pastors. Author Peter Jonker looks to these professionals as he examines the importance of having a controlling, vivid, dominant image that repeats throughout sermons. In Preaching in Pictures, Jonker details how a controlling image helps to unify the sermon and to communicate the sermon’s central thought. The best sermons center around a compelling image that embodies either the trouble present in the Biblical text, or the trouble destroying grace of God that the text proclaims. Jonker offers exercises designed to help pastors find strong, controlling images for their sermons. Preaching in Pictures is the third book in the Artistry of Preaching Series.

  • Gospel In Genesis

    $17.99

    If you’ve ever asked, Why am I the way that I am? Why is life so hard? Is there any hope? you’ll find answers in Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s study of Genesis. In this series of never-before-published sermons, beloved teacher Martyn Lloyd-Jones walks readers through the early chapters of Genesis. The Gospel in Genesis starts with the fall of man and ends with the call of Abram as it examines portions of chapters 3-12. Along the way Lloyd-Jones talks of serpents and sin, of the Word of God and the Babel of man. But the destination of The Gospel in Genesis is clear: readers will be moved from fig leaves in the garden to faith in the gospel. Thus Lloyd-Jones preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ from the pages of Genesis. These nine sermons will snap nonbelievers out of their apathy toward God and will embolden believers to share the only gospel that offers answers to life’s biggest questions.

  • Retelling The Story

    $12.95

    Is the typical didactic sermon still an adequate vehicle for communicating essential biblical truth? In this provocative and enlightening volume, Larry Lange contends that story sermons are a far more effective way to proclaim the Good News in a modern world that largely communicates through narrative-driven multimedia spectacle.

    The powerful stories in the Bible don’t need to be turned into morals or ideas to convey the gospel. But because they were composed in a radically different cultural context, they may require additional explanation or interpretation to make them relevant for contemporary audiences. So how can a preacher add narrative elements to these stories without diminishing their dramatic impact or changing their meaning?

    Retelling The Story outlines an innovative process for retelling biblical stories that utilizes fictional elements and contexts yet remains faithful to the scriptural text. Several creative and homiletical issues are comprehensively examined, and six sample sermons are included to illustrate various aspects of this process at work. Inject exciting new life into the old, old story with this primer for developing dramatic sermons that touch hearts and minds and souls.

  • Childrens Sermons A To Z

    $19.95

    Anyone who has done children’s sermons will sooner or later hear from someone that I learn more from the children’s sermon than I do from the real sermon. And indeed, the truths of scripture are so simple that even a child can understand them. So it’s no accident that children’s sermons have become a central part of the worship service in many churches.

    Brett Blair and Tim Carpenter offer a year’s worth of object lessons that engage children and impart profound lessons for all ages. Two sermons are provided for each Sunday in Cycle C of the Revised Common Lectionary, one based on the Second Lesson and one based on the Gospel. The messages are structured in two parts: the lesson uses an object to draw out active responses from children, then the application connects that object to the assigned scripture reading. Each message includes a clear statement of its exegetical aim.

    Bright, innovative, perceptive, creative, grace-filled Brett Blair and Tim Carpenter are all of those and much, much more, and that is reflected beautifully in their new book Children’s Sermons A To Z.

    Imagine the curious anticipation of the children and the congregation as the pastor/leader reaches into a plastic garbage bag and distributes empty pizza boxes, old newspapers and soft drink cans to introduce God, the Recycler, the One who can make everything new. Watch them readily grasp the concept as they observe a game of tug-of-war in which all the participants are on the same team, demonstrating how in the church we all pull together for a common purpose and no one struggles to pull anyone into the mud. These brief sketches are representative of the many well-loved children’s sermons created, collected, and delivered during the years of this staff pastor’s ministry.

Those who are frustrated by the process of selecting Bible texts and themes for their loved one’s prayer vigil now have a resource to help guide them in their hour of need. On Eagles’ Wings provides ten thematic prayer services designed for use at funeral vigils or as alternative funeral services. Each service is complete and ready to use (including a bulletin format), yet there is flexibility for individual input. Brief descriptions of each service’s theme help family and clergy select the one most appropriate for the deceased. And the services can be led by either clergy or lay leaders, an especially helpful feature for congregations that are serviced by part-time clergy.

  • Object Lessons For A Year (Reprinted)

    $10.00

    52 Object Lessons In 112 Pages

    Additional Info
    OBJECT LESSONS FOR A YEAR: 52 Talks for the Children’s Sermon Time

    Each lesson in this new release commands the attention of children while at the same time communicating a significant truth of Christian faith. All are pretested, having been used effectively in both television and worship service settings.

    These messages reflect the author’s awareness that children need to know that they are very special and that they possess unique, God-given qualities. In writing these object lessons David Claassen was motivated by the example of Jesus, who used objects such as birds, rocks, bread, lost coins, and water to communicate his message. Though simple and direct, these lessons do not underestimate the imagination and comprehension of children. Adults as well will benefit from the clever analogies made. Jesus did not limit his object lessons to children and every pastor knows that no adults ever fall asleep during the children’s message!

  • Time With Our Children

    $13.00

    With simple props-glitter, blocks, candles, and cookies-Dianne Deming brings Scripture and theology into the world and understanding of children. She speaks their language-to them as equals, not at them or down to them-and God’s love for children and her love for them shine through with every word. She recognizes the dignity of children, their worth as unique individuals and to the church, and creates stories that respect how children view the world and their place in it. A TIME WITH OUR CHILDREN is a collection of stories designed for the pastor or teacher to help children share in the faith of the congregation-not as a separate part of the worship service but integrated into the seamless whole of the people of God worshiping together. Deming believes that the most important benefit children receive from their special time in worship is the underlying message that they are valued and loved by God and their church. Her gentle, charming stories do that with grace and aplomb. The stories are keyed to the New Revised Common Lectionary (NRCL) and indexed by topic for non-lectionary use.
