Use this fun children’s message to help transition kids back into school-year mentality. Theme: Homework Bible Verses: Proverbs 1:5 Time: 8 minutes Preparation: None needed Say: It’s time for school again! Who’s excited to go back? I have homework for you today. I want you to find out what it takes to be a good student. And our congregation members are going to be your teachers. On “go,” ask someone in the congregation these two questions: What was your favorite part of school? What’s one secret to being a good student? After you ask these two questions, return to me. Repeat the questions and send kids off. When kids return, ask them to tell what they learned. Ask: Did you have to work hard on this homework? Why or why not? Is school hard work? Why or why not? What’s one thing you’ve heard today that you can do to be a better student? Let’s see what God says about how we can learn and grow. Read Proverbs 1:5. God helps us learn new things! Let’s pray. God, thank you for giving us schools and teachers where we can learn and grow. May we rely on you to help us each and every day. Amen. Looking for more back-to-school ideas? We have you covered!
