August 2, 2015 — “Passing Out the Holy Spirit Gifts” A 10 minute sermon for kids, followed by a 15 minute sermon for the adults making use of the kids sermon as foundation.
Notes for the above: I hope to acquire the video from which the above audio was captured. It will show what was taking place in the first few minutes of the kids sermon, not easily determined only listening to the audio (but possible). I prepared for the kids sermon by creating large name-cards of many of the spiritual gifts, as noted especially in 1 Corinthians 12, but elsewhere as well. I used 11 x 14 stiff, colored, construction paper. Then, written in wide tip, black or other dark colored marking pens, were individual spiritual gifts but with the word “God” preceding another word that could be understood as synonymous. For instance, God-speaker for prophecy, God-worker for worker of miracles, God-gatherer for pastor (shepherding), etc. As the kids got settled I literally “passed out the spiritual gifts” as I chose, and then we were on to the sermon. With that knowledge it will be easier to hear and understand what is happening especially at the beginning of the kid sermon, at the altar rail.
