Theme: Serving another

Serving another in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

The theme of serving and servanthood is an important aspect of the Christian faith. Serving means putting the needs of others before your own, and helping those in need. In the Bible, we see many examples of serving, from the prophets and priests who served God, to Jesus who came to serve and not to be served.

As children learn about serving and servanthood, they can gain a deeper understanding of how they can live out their faith in practical ways. By putting the needs of others before their own, children can learn to be compassionate, empathetic and kind, and develop important character traits such as patience and selflessness.

On this page, you will find a variety of creative ideas, resources, and activities that can be used in your children’s ministry, kid’s church, Sunday school, or Christian primary school to explore the theme of serving. Through engaging activities and thoughtful discussion, children can learn about what it means to serve, how they can serve others, and how God serves us.

Questions that children can consider include: What does serving mean in the Bible? Why is serving important? How can we serve others in our everyday lives? How can we serve God? How does God serve us?

Through these activities, children can learn about the different ways in which they can serve others, including volunteering, donating to charities, or simply helping out a friend or family member in need. They can also explore how God serves us through His love, grace, and mercy, and how we can reflect His love to others through our acts of service.

Activities such as object lessons, group discussion, and creative projects can help children explore these concepts in a fun and engaging way. By providing children with practical tools and ideas for serving others, we can help them develop a deep sense of purpose and compassion that will guide them throughout their lives.
