Children gain confidence when they see their art and writing featured in a live event in which parents and relatives see childlike faith in action. Let children become the subject of ministry instead of the object by empowering and equipping them to share their faith.
Kids’ Christmas Arts Festival
“When I look up at the stars I see
a big star, and then it reminds
me of Jesus.” – Jed, age 7
Christmas is a favorite time of year for many children. Their enthusiasm and inspiration make it a great season to encourage them to draw and write about Jesus. Their work is sure to provide many touching reminders of what Christmas is really about.
Mother’s Day Arts Festival
"The Lord loves me so he made a person of
love and faith to tackle the job of me,
and that is my mom.” – Erica, age 7
There's no better Mother's Day activity than to create a forum for children to draw and write about their mothers. This is one of the most powerful festival themes because children speak from the heart about their moms. Adults and children will laugh and perhaps shed tears when they hear and see what children have said about their moms. In a previous festival a young boy said he loved his mom so much he would die for her. No one doubted his sincerity. This provided a great opportunity for the gospel to go forth effectively.
Custom Arts Festival
"Yellow dogs are in heaven because
the streets are made of gold.
They are both yellow." - John, age 6
Choose your own subject or holiday. The Bible is full of great subjects, such as heaven, angels, children in the Bible, creation, and so on. Or you may want to have a festival for Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Presidents’ Day, Thanksgiving or Easter, for example. You could even choose a current event as the focus. Get creative, and encourage kids to show through their writing and drawing what God and the Bible have to do with your festival’s subject.
