Picturing Jesus: Children's bulletin ideas for Lent
Some parents asked our Worship Ministry team to consider ways of drawing children into our worship services, and as a parent of two school-aged daughters and a toddler, I concurred.
When I read the Lenten series “Picture Jesus” (Reformed Worship 54), it struck me that the article and the artwork would lend themselves quite well to a kids’ bulletin series. Our pastor had planned on preaching a series in Lent concerning the questions that Jesus asked during his ministry. Interestingly, almost all the Scripture texts in the series prepared by Howard Vanderwell and Norma deWaal Malefyt contained some of Christ’s most poignant questions, so the two series blended together well.
