Minion Day

2020-07-06T22:18:47-07:00

Minion Day was our most anticipated Summer Theme Day by far for the kids and leaders (myself included). We did a Minion Day back in 2013 before minion merchandise was everywhere, and it was so popular that we decided to bring it back with some serious upgrades. Just for fun, here is a picture of our set from 2013. What a difference!? 2013 Minion Day Set Set Design: Stage Left Stage Right You can see that we used pretty much the same elements on both sides of the stage for this set design. You can't [...]

Scripture Sunday

2020-07-06T22:18:57-07:00

Red, White, and Blue Theme Day

Theme Days are some of my favorite events to do in kid's ministry. I love going "off curriculum" to theme out an entire service for one Sunday. Three years ago, I came up with the idea of theme days by having a different theme and set each Sunday in July. I have continued that tradition, and I am currently in the middle of my third annual set of Summer Theme Days. Our theme days always include a themed set design, lesson, games, a costume contest, and sometimes a special snack. Since our first theme day fell on 4th of July weekend [...]

Kid's Camp is one of those events that we attend every year as kid's pastors or ministry leaders. Maybe you've been to what seems like 100 camps, or maybe you're just getting started.

If you are taking your kids to camp for the first time, or want to reference my camp packet, feel free to check out my camp packet here: Camp Packet 2015.
