All Access St. Patrick's Day for Kids

Why should children celebrate Saint Patrick's Day? This lesson includes his story, a PowerPoint lesson, and song that will give children a reason why this is an important holiday for the church. We can learn many lessons from the life of St. Patrick about listening to God, obedience, evangelism, and forgive others who treat us unkindly.

All Access The Steadfast Action Figure

This is an entry level skit which requires three adults and very few props. While it was written for Valentine's Day, it can be performed at any time of the year. The skit is about what toys do after everyone leaves a toy store, but it's also about abstinence, i.e. waiting until you're married to have sex. It's done in a very innocent way - there is nothing sexual or romantic in this skit.
