Body of Christ Sunday School Lessons
Use this children’s sermon and object lesson to help kids understand how the church works together to serve the world in Jesus name. It’s based on Romans 12:1-8.
Children’s Sermon Lesson on 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
Children need to understand the importance of their place in the body of Christ. It takes a group of individuals with unique talents and abilities to contribute God’s work in the church. This lesson uses a jigsaw puzzle to illustrate how all “pieces” (and people) are significant. Just as a puzzle needs all of the pieces to complete a picture, the body of Christ needs all members to carry out its purpose. Even kids can and should be part of ministry!
Crafts about Being the Body of Christ.
Use these craft activities in your Sunday School class or children’s ministry when teaching about the Church as the “Body of Christ.”
