Evidence for the Resurrection – PowerPoint teaching

Image by ChristianWallpaper.org

As Easter is approaching, we have been keen to create a free PowerPoint teaching aid for you to use with kids, teens or even adults.

Only Part 1 is ready at present. It covers 9 powerful evidences for the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Part 2, when it is ready, will deal with  5 common objections to this core belief of Christianity and answer each one.

Part 1 – The Evidence covers details of

  • The broken seal
  • The stone moved away
  • The grave clothes intact
  • The  empty tomb
  • The evidence of the women
  • The guards evidence
  • The appearances of the risen Christ
  • The transformation of the disciples
  • The unbelievers who changed their minds

Accompanying the PowerPoint presentation is a set of Presenter’s Notes. They are in PDF format for you to download and print out. These will guide you through the presentation, with cues indicating when to advance the slide. The notes are full enough for you to read aloud as they are, but we recommend that you “make them your own” and adapt them to suit the age and culture of the people you are working with.

Here are three sample slides, to show you the type of visuals that are included.

Oh, one more thing, this has been completed to the best of our ability,though quickly, to get it to you in time for Easter.  So there may be some typos or something might not work as it should. Lin is using the 2010 version of PowerPoint, and we are not sure if the slide animations will behave themselves if you are using an earlier version. We would value your feed-back in order to get this as good as it is possible to be and help you all we can.

Please let us know if you are having problems by visiting our contact page.

Don’t  forget to download your notes as well as the PowerPoint!

Free Valentine’s PowerPoint game

Free PowerPoint game for Valentine's DayThis new PowerPoint game, like all the others on EffectiveChildrensMinistry.org, is completely free.

It is simple to play and has the added bonus of additional slides, suitable for a brief comment on the eternal nature of God’s love, and how it is seen in Christ’s sacrifice.

After the title image, the game is played on one slide. The children choose a number (if played as a review game, they earn the right by answering a question correctly). Once that number is clicked, it reveals a chocolate.  Ordinary chocs score 25, but heart chocs are worth 50 points!

Full instructions are included on the slides at the end, together with a suggested commentary on the bonus extra slides.

Simply Nativity PowerPoint presentation

Last year we made a PowerPoint presentation with simple The shepherd going to Bethlehem from a free Christmas Powerpoint Presentationillustrations.  It was  intended for children aged 5-7 years. But, of course, you can adapt the language to any age group.

As the post announcing this resource is deep in our archives, we are flagging it up again here, to let you know that the free PowerPoint is still available for download, as is the PDF with notes for a simple presentation of the Bible story of the first Christmas.

Detail from a free Powerpoint Christmas nativity presentationWe have found little children are not the only ones who love to hear this story retold. Older children and adults alike have enjoyed this presentation, with the colourful and endearing pictures. We hope you might find it useful in whatever context you are working.

Free Christmas Powerpoint game: Cookie Count

Christmas Cookie count free Powerpoint gameFree PowerPoint Christmas game - Cookie CountChristmas Cookie Count is a simple but effective PowerPoint game. It can be played quickly as a stand-alone game, or used effectively as a review game after a Bible lesson.

Here’s how it works…

  • Two teams play alternately
  • After answering a review question correctly and being awarded points (we suggest 50 for a correct answer) the first team chooses a cookie. It is fun to have them describe the cookie, rather than simply point to it. This encourages the children’s powers of expression.
  • The PowerPoint operator then clicks once on the selected cookie.
  • that cookie will slide off the screen and a Bonus Score will then be revealed and should be added to the score so far.
  • The next team will win their chance to play by answering a review question.
  • They then choose their cookie and the revealed score is added to their total.
  • The game continues until all the cookies have gone, or the time alotted has finished.
  • The winning team is the one with the highest score.

Is Christmas a Myth or Truth?

We made this PowerPoint teaching available a year ago. It was one of the first items we uploaded onto this blog.

Since then, many more visitors have joined us here, so it seems apt to flag it up again, as older blogs can sink to the bottom of the archives!

Myth or Truth? is a  PowerPoint presentation which may be used as one element in a service, or as the basis of a small group Bible study.

It is a brief introduction to the main areas of evidence which prove that Jesus is the promised Messiah, Saviour of all who trust in him.
Develop this as you wish. It is absolutely free to download.

A script is provided in PDF format, to guide you through the slides.
