Baking through the Bible

Ever stuck for ideas?

Well you’re in the right place…

If you enjoyed yesterdays edible resurrection garden and you’d like more Bible inspired baking ideas then I’ll happily point you in the direction of this amazing book (which quite frankly contains a far better version of that resurrection garden meal).

I discovered Bake through the Bible when I worked as a nanny and one of the parents bought it so that her daughter and I could talk about the Bible as we baked (which we quite often did). I loved it at once because it’s full of delicious things! Although it’s designed for at home baking some of the recipes are easily adaptable for group settings. Just leave yourself time to prepare, don’t flick through on a Sunday morning and think ‘I’ll do that today then!’
(As always with Sunday school, whether you’re baking for them or just bringing in snacks, find out what their allergies are and make sure you have emergancy contact details in case you discover a new one!)

Have a cheeky look inside this amazing book and then buy it here.

Next Monday I’ll be back with a brand new series looking at your favourite Old Testament characters and how they foreshadow Jesus. Subscribe so you don’t miss out!


Happy Easter

He’s Alive!

and it’s a great time to celebrate!

Happy Easter from the Disorganised Sunday School blog, I’ve written an Easter themed ‘how to’ today so if you’re stuck for lunch ideas try an edible resurrection garden. It’s great to make with kids so if you’re looking after children this Easter holiday why not add this to your crafts and activities list.

I’ve also collected all the cross and resurrection themed stuff we have so far together on one handy page for you guys. You’re welcome. There will be more to come of course, so don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already.

Please do comment (at the bottom of this page) and let me know what crafts, games, illustrations etc. you’ve used to teach this Sunday – I’d love to hear from you!

Jesus still meets people today

Sorry it’s late…

what else do you expect from a disorganised blog?

I hope it was worth the wait though as Jesus meets us is the conclusion to our series in John’s gospel. Jesus meets a truly diverse group of people and it just goes to show that he is definitely for everyone!

For God so Loved the world he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

We planned this one to show you don’t have to have physically met Jesus to be able to know him and that the very same Jesus is still working in people today, including you – the leaders of your Sunday School/afterschool club/children’s church!

As a bonus, and because even I had noticed it was nearly Easter, here is a play I wrote for our 11-14’s. In it Luke investigates the mysterious tales of one man’s resurrection.
Introducing Doctor Luke and the Mysterious events in Jerusalem!

Jesus meets a poor witness and a good friend

Jesus meets Mary Magdalene

and sadness turns to joy!

While, as a woman, her experience would have counted for nothing in a court of law what Mary Mag saw that day changed the world forever!
I always have this verse (1 Corinthians 15:17) in mind whenever I read/teach about the resurrection:

 if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

He has been raised FACT
Our faith is fruitful FACT
We are free from sin and alive in Christ FACT
And Mary’s testimony tells us just how wonderful that is!

Jesus meets Peter again

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

I wonder if there is space in heaven for books of all of these extraordinary ‘other things’, certainly on an e-reader I guess and we’ll have time to sit and peruse them.

The events John recorded here might not be one of the most extraordinary but it is beautifully poignant. Peter rejected all relationship even all knowledge of Jesus and yet Jesus takes great care to forgive him for each of those things, without any need to make it up to him. Not only that he trusts the forgiven Peter with the care of his church – a great responsibility for someone who was such a massive failure. And his story is my story – one ransomed, healed, restored and forgiven. Get games, songs, drama, teaching and more here.
