Father’s Day Children’s Message: My Father, the Encourager

Use this Father’s Day Children’s Message with children to focus on fathers and other men who encourage children.


Father’s Day Children’s Message: My Father, the Encourager

Form pairs. Give each pair a book. Have one partner walk across the room and back with a book balanced on his or her head. Have the other partner walk along and encourage the balancing partner. Then have the children change roles.

Afterward, ask:

  • How did it feel to have someone there all the time encouraging you?
  • Can you think of what it might feel like to not have someone there to encourage you?

Read aloud Acts 11:22-24.

Ask:

  • How does your father or another male family member encourage you?
  • How does one of the men here at church encourage you?
  • In what ways can we encourage our fathers?

Close in prayer, thanking God for the gift of fathers and other men who encourage children.
