COVID-19 RESOURCES

CORONAVIRUS DISEASE: HOW YOUR CHURCH & CHILDREN’S MINISTRY CAN RESPOND –  List of ideas that you can use to address the COVID-19 pandemic with your parents & children

COVIBOOK – Dear families and educator all over the world, I have created this short book to support and reassure our children, under the age of 7, regarding the COVID-19. This book is an invitation for families to discuss the full range of emotions arising from the current situation. It is important to point out that this resource does not seek to be a source of scientific information, but rather a tool based on fantasy. My recommendation is to print this material so children can draw on it. Remember that emotions are processed through repetitive play and stories read multiple times. Share COVIBOOK and help ease kiddo’s anxiety all over the world.  Manuela Molina – the author

PRIMARY TREASURE – With most churches cancelling services, you might not have a chance to pick up your family’s copy of Primary Treasure and Our Little Friend. That’s why we’re offering PDF versions of each week’s paper here until the Coronavirus crisis has passed. Enjoy reading stories with your children that point them to a kind and loving God.

GUIDE MAGAZINE – Yes, you can read all of this week’s Guide online. Since many of you get your Guide magazines at church, and there’s a good chance your church is closed today in order to keep everyone healthy, we are providing the current issue as a FREE PDF.

GAMES

GAMES FOR KIDS CHURCH – You’ve worked hard on your Kids Church lesson, but you still need to find one more fun activity to round out the hour. If you have served in children’s ministry for long, then you know that down time is the enemy. One great strategy is to always have additional learning activities or games.
