Sports Fun Sunday

A Fun Sunday based on sports is a great idea. Most of the students in your children’s ministry participate in sports.

Theme: Being a Winner in God’s Kingdom

Verse: Hebrews 12:1 (NIrV)  A huge cloud of witnesses is all around us. So let us throw off everything that stands in our way. Let us throw off any sin that holds on to us so tightly. Let us keep on running the race marked out for us.

Theme Song: All Star (Uncle Charlie’s Made 2 Praise Vol. 5)

Decorations: The decorations for this theme are easy. Just use a variety of sport’s equipment.

Bible Story: Talk about how Paul ran the Christian race.

Message: Talk about how to get into the race (salvation), how to train for the race (Bible, prayer, church), how to lay aside the obstacles (sin), and how to run the race.

Here’s some link to free children’s ministry lessons about running the race that you can use.

Snacks: You can make the lunch easy but include healthy foods athletes might eat. Peanut butter sandwiches work because they have protein. You can also serve fruits and vegetables. Sugar cookies could be shaped like tennis shoes.

Craft Ideas: Here’s some links for craft ideas that will even work for people who aren’t crafty.
