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


My Real Identity

In this sermon, the presenter has lost his/her wallet. Searching in a Lost & Found box, the presenter finds similar-looking wallets, allowing the opportunity to try on a few different identities. When the real wallet is finally found, an adoption certificate is inside revealing the presenter's true identity — a child of the King.

U Turn

When we sin, we can make a U turn by admitting we did something wrong, working to make it right again and receiving forgiveness from Jesus and the people we hurt.

This sermon tells the story of Miles the car. One day Miles gets in trouble at school and at home and finds that he’s going down the wrong path. Miles learns to make a U Turn and return to the one way path back to God.

Unread Mail

God’s Word is an important message He has sent us. He wants us to read it daily! In this lesson, the presenter goes through some mail. The presenter looks at each piece of mail, talking about how special and important it is, but Scripture then puts it away without reading it. This absurd exercise illustrates what people often do with the Bible, God’s message to us.
