One special treat for GiveNOLA 2021 was the opppurtunity to participate in the CEF 2021 Internaitonal Conference. At the conference, we connected with Lyn Oerting (Longbeach, MS) and Gladys Burgos (Lima, Peru). Watch this brief video to hear one way GiveNOLA Day donations make a difference.
Here’s a great Easter resource from CEF Press you can use with your children, grandchildren, neighbors, Good News Club or church kids.
Damon Dupart, Sr, of Greater New Orleans demonstrated the lesson in 2017. We edited for use with children or volunteer training.
Damon read the Memory Verse in the Lesson. Here is a visual you can use to help teach the verse to the children in your life. (CEF Press suggests having the children pass a pretend crown from child to child as they repeat the words of the Memory Verse, for interest, speed it up or slow it down, or use silly voices.)
May God bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you in 2021. We are grateful for the MANY unique and new ways we could “Tell His Story, Train Parents & Volunteers, and Teach Little Ones” in 2020. Watch this video we created to celebrate His goodness:
Phil created a prayer that can help us all grow in Spiritual maturity in 2021. You can download it free here:
Each Christmas we enjoy these simple favorite songs that teach the Christmas message with a simple tune.
First, John 20:21 Song. We like to teach about missions during Christmas. We will use a penny as an object lesson and tell children that a missionary is like a penny, they are “one sent.” They trust in God, “In God we Trust.” They teach people how to have “liberty” from sin. John 20:21 is a great scripture verse to reinforce these truths.
Phil’s favorite Christmas lesson is CEF Press‘s, Evangelistic Christmas Party Kit, “Whose Birthday is it?” The story about a boy who has a dream of his birthday party where everyone exchanged gifts but they don’t give him one. This is the song set to the tune of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”
Another song that compliments the “Whose Birthday is it?” lesson is “What Can I Give Him?” Song. This is a poem set to the tune of “Away in the Manger.”
Finally, we enjoy using these three songs when teaching preschoolers at Christmas. The “J-E-S-U-S” song set to the tune of “B-I-N-G-O;” the “Mary has a Little One” Song, set to the tune of “Mary had a little lamb.” We also included a fun game suggestion.
