How to Make a Blessing Bag

My niece sent me a link to a site that makes blessing bags. Love this idea.  You can make these bags up as a group and put them in your trunk.  We have all seen homeless people that we have wanted to help but have held back because  it's not a good idea to give them money.  Click here to visit the site for ideas of what to put in the bags.  Be sure to read the comments, there are a lot of great ideas there.  One idea was to put wipes instead of the soap so the smell of the soap doesn't transfer to the food.  Coupons are a great way to get products for these bags.  They can end up costing next to nothing using coupons.

Funny Things Kids Say About the Bible



If you have ever taught children in Sunday School, you can relate to this very well....the bible according to Kids.
 

In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God,
darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, 'The Lord thy God is one, but I
think He must be a lot older than that.
Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did.

Then God made the world.



He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't

embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet.

Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from
the Garden of Eden.....Not sure what they were driven in though, because they
didn't have cars.

Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel.

Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived

to be like a million or something.

One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of his

kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and some

animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said they would

have to take a rain check.

After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his

brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some pot

roast. Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat.


Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston.

Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after

God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh's people. These plagues included frogs,

mice, lice, bowels, and no cable.


God fed the Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then he gave them His Top

Ten Commandments. These include: don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet

your neighbor's stuff.

Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more: Humor thy father and thy mother.


One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to use

spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the town.


After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a

slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500

porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn't sound very wise

to me.


After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was

Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed up on the shore.



There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don't have to

worry about them.


After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of The
New.

He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had been born in a barn
too,
because my mom is always saying to me, 'Close the door! Were you born in a

barn?' It would be nice to say, 'As a matter of fact, I was.')


During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees
and

the Democrats.


Jesus also had twelve opossums.


The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a

terrible vegetable after him.


Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some

Germans on the Mount.


But the Democrats and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the

Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead.



Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He went up
to

Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminum. His return is foretold
in

the book of Revolution.

Candy Handouts with Bible Scripture


 I thought it was a good idea as a witnessing tool. Our church has a float in the upcoming Christmas parade. Our pastor's wife made up these hand outs to give to onlookers as the float goes by. It has our church name, pastors name and the contact number at the bottom. This way, you are passing out candy with a purpose.Great witnessing idea for a church project.

Snowman Paint Can and Gift Ideas


Here is  a Snowman paint can craft project  I did for Christmas several years ago.  
You can make a snowman face in psp or the graphics program of your choice. I used a snowflake background and put a poem on the back. I bought a pair of earmuffs and removed everything but the part you see and wired them to the paint can. Another idea would be to put the face on the lid. This paint can was really a hit with family and friends. You can fill it with gifts.

 What do you fill it with? Here is what I put in mine:

  •  Carrot cake mix(the bagged cake mixes) 
  •  Canned frosting
  •  Christmas towel set (snowman of course)

 Let your imagination be your guide.

Christian M & M Candy Craft /free printable


 I made these ministry tranquilizers a few years back..   It is a fun craft for a pastor  using a canister of M & M's for a pill bottle. It has a poem that thanks a minister for all he does for the church.  I'm thinking of making one for youth directors, Sunday School teachers and other church leaders.  Here is the free printable candy wrapper.  Click on the wrapper and print.  Run a line of glue (stick) on the side and wrap around the bottle.  This has been  a fun project that I will probably make more wrappers for.
