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
