Links for My Children’s Liturgy Resources for November 27, 2011

Dear Children’s Liturgy Leaders, Leaders of Children’s Church, or Sunday School Teachers,

I thought I would let you know the resources available on my website: For example: For the first Sunday in Advent, November 27th, 2011 I have the following items: a devotional explaining the Gospel in language children understand. A wordsearch puzzle that can be worked online (interactive one) or printed out (pdf). A crossword puzzle that can be worked online or can be printed out. I also have a skit for this particular Sunday. I’d like to have a skit for each Sunday. If I had people who told me they would act them out with their classes, it would inspire me to go ahead and write them. The skit for November 27th is a brand new one. It’s not using the Gospel for that Sunday but it’s appropriate for the beginning of Advent.

I have links to all of the works like this in a file called: Related Links for Cycle A,  Related Links for Cycle B, and Related Links for Cycle C.

To print more than one copy, you must have permission from me.

November 27, 2011 B1, 1st Sunday in Advent, Be Alert, Mark 13:33-37

Children’s Liturgy Is a Wonderful Thing

Instead of writing a newsletter or having a yahoo group to send messages about Children’s Liturgy, I decided to change and write a blog about Children’s Liturgy. I hope people will ask questions and give their opinions. I’ll give references to my website with devotionals, wordsearch and crossword puzzle, and skits for children’s liturgy. I’ll also post about other resources for Children’s Liturgy on my website:

You can sign up to receive my blogposts by email  so I can contact you if you win a prize.
Thanks for reading. What would you like to read here? What resources do you need for your children’s liturgy service or children’s church?
