Feasting on the Word: Children’s Sermons for Year C by Carol A. Wehrheim is a great resource with practical suggestions for preparing and delivering children’s sermons. Whether you are clergy or lay, staff or a volunteer, this book is for anyone who who leads children’s sermons/messages every week, once a month, or even on occasion.
After explaining the purpose of the children’s sermon, noted Christian educator Carol Wehrheim provides a story for each Sunday of the church year based on the Revised Common Lectionary. In addition, a few stories are provided for special moments in the church’s life, such as when a mission group is commissioned, church leaders ordained, a death occurs.
“In a day and age when all ages could probably use help hearing and better relating to our sacred stories, this children’s sermon book delivers.” – Rev. Janelle Hooper (her review)
