Friday Fun - Happy Birthday Jesus Cakes



This is my family's favorite Christmas tradition:

I bake everyone in the family a round, single layer cake. When the cakes have cooled, everyone gets to frost and decorate their own cake. We use various colors of frosting, candy, flaked coconut, marshmallows, and sprinkles. When the decorating is done, we light a candle in each cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. Then everyone gets to start eating their own cake.
I've also invited the neighbor over to make cakes with us as an evangelistic activity.

Tuesday Hero - Robert Raikes

The story of Robert Raikes is very inspirational.

God used this man
to start many new Sunday Schools. Plus he made going to Sunday School popular. He was a real hero.

I hope you enjoy reading the story of Robert Raikes for kids.

You can also take a 6 question Quiz

Here are some questions for you to answer.

  • Can you imagine working 6 days a week, up to 12 hours each day? Why would these overworked, poverty-stricken children spend their one free day going to school?
  • Why were the children hesitant to come to Sunday school at first? What are some things that keep children from coming to Sunday school today?
  • The new Sunday schools taught two kinds of lessons. They taught reading and writing part of the day and Bible lessons the rest of the day. Which do you think was more important for helping the children and why?
  • What difference has attending Sunday school made in your life? Have you ever invited a friend to Sunday school?
  • Many other adults were aware of the white slaves of England, but did nothing to help. Why do you think Robert Raikes chose to do something to help the children? What resources did Robert have that he could use to further this cause?

Monday Ministry - Christmas Evangelism

You can pass these out in December. They look like money, but they have a gospel message on the back.

Here are some ways to give them away: at Christmas parades and events, in zipper lock baggies with candy, at Christmas parties, and to friends, relatives, & neighbors.

You get 100 Santa Cash tracts for $4.00 from CustomTractSource.com



This is what it says on the back of the gospel tract:

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice... he’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice! If Santa used the Ten Commandments for his standard, how would you do? Let's find out... Have you ever lied? Have you ever stolen anything? (No matter the value.) Ever used God's name in vain? Ever hated anybody? The Bible says “Whoever hates his brother is a murderer”


If you are guilty of these things, it shows that in your heart, you are a lying, thieving, blasphemous, murderer-at- heart. Many people don't know that God will use the Ten Commandments to judge the world. Forget about Santa, "naughty" and "nice"... how will you do on Judgment Day? If you are found guilty, that means an eternity in Hell... 2,000 years ago, God sent Jesus to the earth to pay for your sins. When Jesus died on the cross, He took the punishment that you deserve for breaking His Law (The Ten Commandments). God's wrath came down on Jesus, instead of on you. The Bible says, "God commands all men everywhere to repent, because God has appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness."

Remember if you try to get to Heaven on your own, you must keep every Commandment in thought, word, and deed! Jesus paid the penalty for your sins on the cross. Then He defeated the power of sin and death when He rose from the dead. Repent (turn away) from your sins. Place your faith in Jesus Christ alone to save you. God will grant you eternal life. Read your Bible daily and obey what you read.

    I like v
    isiting Christian blogs, reading Christian books, and listening to Christian radio stations. All of these things teach me more about Jesus.

    However, my pastor reminded me that these Christian things do not replace reading the Bible and praying. It is more important that we read the Bible; it is God's word. It is our Christian instruction manual, telling us the best way to live. Prayer also needs to be a priority, because it is the time when we actually talk to God.

    I don't want to just know about Jesus, I want to have a personal relationship with Him. That means that I must spend more time with Him - reading the Bible and praying to Him.
