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. We are 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 PowerPoint teaching: When I am afraid

We can cope with fear through the power of Jesus ChristJust in time for Hallowe’en (though useful all year round), this free PowerPoint presentation for children, deals sensitively with with how to cope with fear. It begins:

We have all felt fear at some time or another.
Some fears are good. They keep us safe. For example, fear of being hit by a car will help us watch out when crossing a street. Fear of being burned will help us to be careful when we are near camp fires or barbecues.
But sometimes there are fears which are harmful to us. They can take over and spoil our lives and even control what we do, so that we are held back form doing good things we would enjoy and are compelled to wear ourselves out doing other things which are not helpful.
But fears can be zapped, so that will no longer upset us or spoil our lives.

Using scenarios that children can identify with, (including “spooky stuff”, creepy-crawlies, the dark, bullying and others sources of fear)  this presentation gives you visuals and full presenter’s notes. It suggests how you might lead the children in discussion, as well as give the biblical answer to the question “What can I do when I am afraid?”

It focuses on the mighty power of God and shows in very practical steps how we can use the Bible effectively, and how to rely on Christ at all times.

By the end of this session, the children will have learned how to zap some fears by themselves, how to ask for help when they need it and how to trust God to zap the fears that only he can deal with.

Memory verses: Out-loud learning really works

One sure way to help kids memorize bible verses is to say them out loud. An article on the Psychology Today website confirms what we have probably known all along!

They looked at people’s memory for items like a list of words. They found that if people studied the list by reading half of the words silently and the other half by saying the words out loud, that he words spoken aloud were remembered much better than those that were read silently.

There are lots of games and strategies to make out-loud repetitive learning fun. Speaking out the Word of God is a proven help to remembering.

Kathy Vincent (aka Scripture Lady) has some great ideas from making out-loud learning fun for kids.  Here is a great one. Check it out and see if you would like to use it this week with your class or club

10 weeds that choke kid’s ministry

We both love our allotment garden. We grow veggies, fruit and flowers  there, but the crop can be ruined by weeds and pests.
So we sat up and took note when we spotted  one article highlighted  in the Childrens Ministry magazine newsletter.

ChildrensMinistry.com is a great site, stuffed with useful resources and tips from experienced kid’s workers.

Walter Norvell, a children’s minister in Tennessee, writes  about 10 “weeds” that threaten the growth of your children’s ministry. It’s a great check list to run through from time to time.

Free visuals: How to cope with Temptation

What do running shoes and a warning bell have in common? They both feature in this free visual presentation.

The download is a PDF containing full instructions and images to print out and laminate. It is what we call an Adaptable Application, because although it was first intended to illustrate practical teaching from the life of Moses, it is adaptable for any Bible lesson where temptation features.

The simple outline gives children and others a four-step strategy, so that they can cope better when they are tempted. Piece by piece, as you open out the teaching and apply it to real life, the visuals help the kids to retain the teaching.

Here is an outline for How to Cope with Temptation.

REMEMBER what you have been told.
Our teachers and the folk who look after us at home tell us right and wrong.

REALIZE the danger.
Every action has a result. We need to think things through; think ahead to what might happen to us, or to others, as a result of our actions.

RUN AWAY from the situation.
It is not cowardly, when you are tempted, to go off do something else. It takes courage to run away from doing wrong!

RELY on God.
Christians believe he has the power to help us do right, and follow God’s plan for life.
