Kids Ministry:  Wisdom

To help YOU thrive and flourish in your leadership role, we are putting all our lessons learned, tips, ideas and free downloadable Children’s Ministry resources in one ever-expanding FREE PDF file called KIDS MINISTRY: WISDOM (that’s KM:W for short). Over the weeks and months we’ll give you our best take on subjects like recruiting, making class super fun, what to do when your pastor is mad at you, flourishing on a paltry church budget, the fastest way to get fired and much, much more. All things we wish we knew sooner!

To help YOU thrive and flourish in your leadership role, we are putting all our lessons learned, tips, ideas and free downloadable Children’s Ministry resources in one ever-expanding FREE online magazine called KIDS MINISTRY: WISDOM (that’s KM:W for short).

All things we wish we knew sooner!

Our initial edition of KM:W, all about igniting the FUN level in class, contains a link to a MAJOR free resource, our nine-week ADVENTURES of DANIEL Sunday School course. It features four age levels from Pre-K to Upper Elementary with all the activities, posters and whatnots you need to teach a fun yet Biblically profound series. The course comes with the amazing Watchables resources, for those with Windows computers hooked up to classroom screens.

Here's What Happens When You Sign Up...

You’ll hop over to a page that has a button to click to open the magazine PDF file. Meanwhile, a confirmation will be sent to your email inbox.

The next time we add to KM:W (every couple of weeks on average) we will send you an alert email with a link so that you can view the latest update immediately. Only the KM:W will have links to our growing list of free resources, so you'll definitely want to keep up with it all. You will never receive marketing emails from us; anything we may wish to interest you in will be mentioned in the KM:W.

Here's Your First Free Resource... 

Click the cartoon to learn all about our ADVENTURES in DANIEL Sunday School curriculum. This is a full-blown nine-week course with a total of 36 lesson plans (four age-levels times nine weeks) with lots and lots of activities, comic cartoon/Bible activity take-home pages, even educational games to play on your classroom screen! 

And Available Now... 

Are you struggling to run a great kids ministry on a paltry church budget? Check this: In twenty years we've never ran a fundraiser, never charged for anything except camps, given literally every penny of the SS collection to missions, don't recall ever asking for money, and still stayed in or PRETTY CLOSE to in the budget. We’ll explain how that's possible.

And the free download is one you'll want to tuck away until Covid lockdowns have ended. It's KIDS PARTY, a program we ran Friday nights (since the 1990's!) to draw in Middle and Upper Elementary kids like flies. This grew the number of families in our fellowship; it'll work for you too. Check out these videos on the parts and pieces of KP Free:

Click the cartoon to get a fast run-through of the articles and pages in the KP Leader Guide. The KIDS PARTY program solves a lot of challenges facing your need to grow your group, but will it work for you? The video helps you decide.

We quickly flip through nearly 50 pages filled with about 140 games kids love to play. Team games, draw names from a hat games, crazy stuff that get the kids laughing and shouting. Every game has been tested in our own Kids Parties.

Download our dynamic animated activities for your Windows computer and big screen. These games are NOT played by the kids. Instead, teams watch as the KIDS PARTY points roll up amid cheers and groans. Very fun and totally unique.

More resources are now up! You'll want to know more about all this, so. . .

FAQs

How often will you add new stuffs to KM:W?

We are SUPER excited about KM:W and all the great resources coming up; that's why this is our full time job now. We are hoping for an average release of once a week. However it goes, you'll be alerted by email each time.

 

Do you have a YouTube channel?

Will Watchables be available for Mac?

We hope so! We think the Watchables are a huge plus-factor in KIDS PARTY. And we have many more Watchables--educational ones--for our up-coming CLAMbake Sunday School/Discipleship program; we would love to have them all available for Mac users! But we need to purchase a Mac computer and learn a few things first, so we are waiting to see if there is a lot of interest before we dive into all that. Answer hazy.

What is that "Buy Tom and Dain a Coffee" button?

The Buy Me A Coffee program is rapidly gaining popularity with Internet content providers. It is the easiest way for a supporter to send a tip to people like us. A "coffee" costs $3. You choose to buy us one or more. We pay Buy Me A Coffee only 15 cents, we pay your card charges (so you pay an even $3 per coffee) and we pay PayPal who oversees the transaction details. We end up with about $2.40 per coffee. Cool! Click the Buy Tom and Dain a Coffee button above to see how easy it is; you don't open an account or anything. Thanks!

 

Are you going to be selling stuffs?

We will! The free KIDS PARTY download tells you all you need to know to run your KIDS PARTY program, but you'll see how great it would be to have all the forms, posters, upgraded Watchables and more. We'll have that in our KP Premium resource. Coming very soon.

And we are really excited about our two-year Sunday School/Decipleship course we call CLAMbake. It looks exactly like the Daniel course. It's huge, so it's pretty far away at this moment. But it's a major priority, so we are chipping away at it. Dozens of people have tested our lessons and love them!

 

Is there a catch to all this?

There's really not. Let me (Tom) tell you my exact motivation in creating Christ's Love And Majesty Ministries and why you'll be pleased.

First, my life Bible verse: "Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come." That's Psalm 71:18, NIV. I am now old and gray, but the thing that really stands out to me is the second part. Starting when I was in High School, I have spent my entire life teaching people younger than me about our Lord and Savior Jesus. This verse really describes me, especially now that I'm a geezer!

And so the time has come to give my stuff away as a legacy to all the good God has done for me. It's there to help you carry the torch to the kids you work with. That's my first of two purposes in putting together the CLAMcentral website.

The second is in deference to the realities of life. That is, I do hope to sell some quality resources to continue to pay those pesky little bills we all know and love.

That's it, no catch.

 

Uh...so Dain and Tom...Why do you call your site CLAMcentral, anyway?

The CLAM in CLAMcentral stands for Christ's Love And Majesty. His Love is everything He says and does, and His Majesty is Who He is: The Son of God. With Christ's Love And Majesty as our guiding principle we have developed an outstanding Sunday School/Discipleship program for kids in Preschool to Upper Elementary. We call it CLAMbake, of course! Sign up for KM:W; it will tell you when CLAMbake is done to a T. Click this ABOUT link to learn more about us.
