Children's Sermons


Putting together a creative, visual children's sermon or lesson has never been easier. Blue Box Children's Sermons are downloadable resources comprised of a complete script, prop instructions, and lesson plan; most also include a small group activity. These lessons are designed to creatively engage children within the context of a worship service, but can be used anytime and anywhere — and adults love them, too! 

The original Blue Box children's sermons were developed by Jane Van Antwerp during her 25 years as a Children’s Ministries Pastor at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Northern California, each featuring a prop or illustration pulled from a Blue Box. The popular Blue Box Board Books originated from these children's sermons.

We’ve been using the great Blue Box messages for our camp talks (to 3rd-5th graders) over the last four years. Our kids love them. Our counselors love them, too, as well as the engaging cabin conversations they have initiated. I’m more relaxed seeing how God continues to use these short talks year after year to connect personally with kids. They are creative, Biblically sound and understand where kids’ hearts are.
— Steve Mercer | Children and Family Pastor, Peninsula Bible Fellowship
Some of the most memorable sermons I’ve heard in my lifetime came out of the Blue Box. Joy, creativity, and humor combine to communicate the Good News — not just for kids, but for grown-ups, too. These timeless lessons are appropriate for camps, worship services, Sunday School classes, chapel programs, and anywhere kids gather to learn about God’s love for them. If you work with children in a ministry setting, you need the Blue Box!
— Jan Thomas | founder, performing arts ministry for kids


The Thanksgiving Habit

This children’s message is the story about two neighboring classmates: Ollie Oblivious and Nellie Notice. Their teacher challenges the class to see who can make the longest list of things they are thankful for. We find that taking time to notice what God is giving and doing in your life brings not only thankfulness, but a close relationship with God.

Biggest Present Ever

The biggest and best present ever is a relationship with Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

This Blue Box skit needs to be done by two people that are (or can act) different ages. The presenter is the parent and the assistant is the child. We recommend the child is played by a pre-teen or teen who has drama and memorizing experience, or at least an adult who can dress and act young.

6 downloadable PDF pages include: Summary/Scripture and Family Conversation Starter; 2 Person Skit; Prop Instructions. (Note: Small group activity is not included.)
