Sermons are difficult for kids to understand. When they don’t understand what’s being said, they often lose interest very quickly. Can you really blame them?
Kids need something geared for their age, especially when it comes to understanding spiritual things and the natural world around them.
Even Jesus had to use parables with the crowds and His disciples, like The Seed and The Sower, to try and bring a spiritual truth.
So, if your kids are sitting in a Sunday sermon, what can you try and do to keep their attention on what’s being said, even if it’s for a little bit?
Free Printable Sermon Notes For Kids
The best way to help steer our kids and their thinking skills when it comes to sermons, is to offer prompts and questions.
Using a notebook or paper, kids can write down the following points as their template for each sermon:
- Today’s date
- Message title
- Bible verses in today’s message
- Important points in today’s message
- Words I didn’t understand from today’s message
- Make a tally mark every time you hear God, Jesus, love or pray
- Questions I have from today’s message
Another great tool is to use this free printable sermon notes from Wildly Anchored which incorporates these prompts and questions.
Keep a few copies of this printout on hand to help your kids take interest in the sermon.
Also, encourage your kids to keep the notes storing them in a binder. Life is a journey and they may find that over time God has opened up more and more to them in His Word as they’ve continued to spend time with Him.
