Here is what I do for a kids water baptism. First of all, we require a 2 day class for an hour. We want to make sure that kids fully understand the commitment they are about to make. I use a curriculum by Brian Dollar called "Should I Be Baptized?". The cost for the curriculum is $14.99, but its good! I'm also in the process of writing my own curriculum for a kids water baptism. Second, we perform the water baptism in kids church. We want other kids to see what other kids are doing and the commitment that their very own friends are making. Thirdly, we give them a nice little gift and certificate to take home. As you see above, we hand them a wristband that says "I Got Baptized!". Kids love it! They go around the church, school, and home showing off their brand NEW wristband.
Let me know how you do your kids water baptism.

At my kids church we provide different kinds of centers where kids could come in and enjoy free time with other kids before service begins. We offer TONS of centers! Couple things that I like about having centers is that; 1) it helps kids get to know each other, 2) friendships are being built, 3) It keeps them from running around, 4) it's FUN! Here are some of the centers we provide at my kids church:
-Tic Tac Toe (I made 2 sets)
-Video Game Stations
If you have any ideas, please let me know!

Here is another crazy game we played on Sunday. It's called "Duct Roll". What we did was, we had 2 boys and 1 adult male VS 2 girls and 1 adult female. We wrapped each person with duct tape (duct tape is facing out) and gave them 3 minutes to roll around the floor collecting as many index cards as possible. The team with the most index cards wins. Here is the catch though, we blind folded the adult leaders. It made the game crazier. We laid 2 packs of 100ct colored index cards. FYI: Duct tape might come off if not put on properly!!
Here is what you will need for this game:
-Rolls of Duct tape (we used a total of 3 rolls for 2 services)
-3 Minute countdown

This is a crazy game we played on a Sunday during kids church. It's called "Worm Race". Worm race is a race from start to finish. We had a child go inside a sleeping bag face first and when we said "GO", they went. It's funny! Kids went all over the place, why?? because they couldn't see the finish line. Kids were going under chairs, pumping against walls and pumping against leaders. It made the crowd go wild. We had 4 kids from each team go at it. After one team member crossed the finish line, they would run back and hand over the sleeping bag to the next person. At the end we had an adult leader finish the race for their team. Try it and tell me what you think. Here is what you will need for this game:
-2 sleeping bags
-duct tape or painters tape (start to finish line)

Volunteers need to feel appreciated every week. One of the things I love to do is to send text messages about once a week, thanking them for all they do and appreciating them for everything. I have written hand written notes to them, sent letters through the mail, emails and also giving them a little gift. As you see on top, I gave those little bags of goldfish to my leaders, reminding them that they are fishers of men. They love it! I heard "Awww that's so cute!" or "Thank you for thinking of me". Do something special for your leaders, remember that they don't get paid to help you.

One of the things that I use to communicate with my leaders is "Planning Center". Planning Center is a website where you can create your very own order of service and you are able to send to your leaders. You can find out if your leaders are available to help and they can also see what part of the service they will be a part of. It's very simple to use and affordable. If you would like to see my order of service, just send me a quick email and I will respond back to you.
