10 Bulletin Board Ideas for Children’s Church

bulletin board ideas

In this digital age, it’s important to keep your children’s ministry website and social media pages updated. But don’t overlook the role of low-tech yet high-impact bulletin board ideas. Kidmin hallways, Sunday school classrooms, and children’s church areas can use bulletin boards to share schedules, news updates, photos, and the good news of Scripture.

Bulletin board ideas range from Bible studies and themes to seasonal and holiday displays. For fall and back to school, a bulletin board can welcome new children and families, provide directions and classroom assignments, showcase teacher and volunteer photos, and even feature pockets filled with forms and handouts. As winter approaches, bulletin boards can keep people updated about Christmas rehearsals, family-focused activities, and donation and service opportunities.

During spring, use bulletin board ideas to chart attendance, memory-verse progress, fundraising goals, and more. Be sure to publicize Promotion Sunday too, congratulating children for moving up to a new class — or to the next age-based ministry within your congregation, such as preteens or youth. Summer bulletin board ideas include VBS, camps and daycare programs, and updates about the children’s church schedule.

Craft stores and the internet are filled with supplies that make it a snap to bring unique bulletin board ideas to life. If you’re short on time, ask a creative parent or youth volunteer to contribute their ideas and know-how.

To jumpstart your brainstorming, we’ve gathered some innovative bulletin board ideas for children’s ministry. Try them out to capture the attention of everyone who walks through your church or its children’s church space!
