Providing age-appropriate sermon notes is a great way to keep children engaged with worship. These resources also help kids make connections between Scripture and daily life.
If you offer children’s worship bags or kits, include sermon notes and writing utensils to encourage kids to participate in the service. I recommend including a notes printable every week. To add variety for young learners, feel free to change up the look, layout, style, or format each Sunday. Then start over and cycle back through them. Before long, your kids will have favorites!
