Silly Scarecrow Day
September 27, 2015
Farmers plant seeds in his garden. The Scarecrow protects the farmer’s seeds in the garden. God plants seeds in our hearts. Every word in the Bible is a seed that God wants to plant in our hearts. We have to become like scarecrows and protect God’s seeds that are in our hearts.
Our next lesson is “Silly Scarecrow Day". We want to encourage as many kids to participate. We have a fun filled lesson planned and want the kids to participate and be excited about learning about Jesus. Below is what we need:
We want the kids to come dressed as a scarecrow or a farmer.
Bring at least 1 can of vegetables or more if you would like to be delivered to the Christian Crisis Center.
We want to encourage kids to bring their Bible so they can follow along with our lesson and actively participate.A treat will be given to those who do.Even if your child is not of the age to read we have helpers to assist them.
Memory Verse: “Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.” 1Timothy 4:15

Children's Church at Antioch meets in the Fellowship Hall every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. The children meet in the Sanctuary and participate in the first part of regular church service. At the designated time the children are then led to Fellowship Hall by Children Church chaperones and are picked up by their parents at the end of worship service.
The leaders use creative and fun ways to share God's love with the children by using special characters, skits, puppets, object lessons and much more. Each lesson is based on the Bible. This is a very interactive time where children learn about Jesus. Children participate in the lesson, learn Bible verses, sing songs along with characters or puppets, make crafts, and participate in game time.
A recent lesson from Children's Church
"Playing For God's Team"
Bottom Line: When we put God first, the victory is already won.
Objective: Kids will learn to put Jesus first.
Key Passage: 2 Chronicles 20:1-24: The story of Jehoshaphat and Judah's victory over their enemies.
Memory Verse: "Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's." 2 Chronicles 20:15b (NIV)
Summary: When Jehoshaphat and the nation of Judah were faced with a great enemy, they cried out to God. They put God first and God gave them the victory. God will give us the victory, too, when we put him first and let him fight for us.
While we do have fun at children's church our main focus is to teach children about God's love. "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6
