  1. This is so great! I have been trying to find something like this for my SS kids I have the 8-12 year olds and I believe they should be learning to sit in services. I also want them to enjoy it and not be entertaining themselves with things. Thanks again for all this!

      1. Thank you Kim for these wonderful sermon notes 😀 surely my 7 yr.old and 15 yr.old will love it. Stay Blessed and continue to inspire others 😀

  2. I have been trying to design something like this for my kiddos. My oldest uses the note outline our pastor has printed on our weekly bulletin, and she helps her brother to fill out the major points, but I have been really trying to figure something out for my two youngest. Thank you so much for giving these away. They are exactly what I am needing. I am so glad to have found your blog and have been very blessed to read it for several months now.

  3. Great ideas! I teach sunday school and once a month or so I keep the kids upstairs and I’m teaching them to take notes during the sermon. Such a good thing for kids to learn.

  4. First, thank you so much for this. I have been trying to figure a way to get my son to pay better attention to the sermons in church! I so appreciate you sharing this! My question though…..What size is the printed version? When I downloaded it, it looked like it was half a page size but I do not get how to assemble it to look right. Can you help? Do I print it double sided? Thanks!

      1. Hi! I tried printing them double sided, and the pages are all out of order when you assemble the booklet. Maybe I’m doing it wrong? Do you mean print it double sided and then fold like a booklet? If so, I think that’s what I did. Do you think you could describe how to put the pages in order to make the booklet? Thanks so much!


        1. I actually didn’t fold them. The main pages are actually super easy. The first few might take a few minutes of positioning to get them just right. One option, if you can’t figure it out is to just print the first few pages without being back-to-back. Then you can do the main pages after that. Hope that helps!

          1. Hi! This is such an amazing resource and I am so excited to have found it! However, I am also a little confused on how to put this together. Did you cut the pages in half and staple? It very much looks like it is meant to be a booklet but I can’t seem to get the pages to line up right. What order did you put them in? I would really appreciate any help you could offer. I’m sure I am making this more difficult than it has to be! Ha!

  5. Wow! My child is getting baptized this weekend, and he struggles with listening to the sermon. He already has a Bible and a worship basket (for personal devotions- contains Bible lesson study papers, ruler for underlining, Bible marking pencils, journal and pen, devotional, & his Bible stays there when it’s not in use), so I was at a loss about what to do for a gift for his baptism. This is it. Thanks so much!

  6. Thank you for this. I have been paying my girls to write down the scripture references (1 cent for each reference 5 cents if it is spelled correctly and 10 cents if they write the whole scripture) pastor uses to keep them listening. I love this writing the main points also. I may have to reconfigure the sermon page a little to fit our service but the rest is lovely. Our pastor uses many many scripture references throughout the sermon.

  8. I couldn’t get it to let me enter my information. The fields were there, but no button to submit them. I so want this outline as my son just recently decided to leave the kids class to attend the adult service so he can “learn more”.

  10. Hi,

    Thanks for this post, it has really helped my husband and I. We have just started ministry in a church w no kids programs, we have been looking for new a creative ideas for our 5 – 11 years olds. We have a total no technology in church or on Sunday just give us all a day off a week. Do you find it difficult talking to other parents that allow technology in church? We find it difficult as our kids gravitate to screens and think we are the bad guys when we ask them to turn away. So good to hear what you have to say.

    1. At my present church, it’s not a problem. Parents are rather serious about discipling their children, especially in the service. At previous churches, there were many things that I found that I was the “bad guy” on. I just always try to explain to my kids that I am accountable for the decisions in our family and that I have to make decisions based on what I believe God is telling me through His Word. I never make it about other people, but it does naturally point out that others are doing it. The bottom line in this case is that if we are Christians, we should be thirsty for what is going on in the service!

  11. I wish I’d have found this before I got my son in the bad habit of taking his iPad mini to service. I can’t wait to start implementing it and having some interesting conversations about what was learned.

    1. It’s never too late to start over. Whenever I change something like this with my kids (and it happens often enough), I’m usually very honest with them. I just tell them that I messed up and that I should have let them do that. I tell them that it’s my job to parent and I failed them. It’s amazing what this kind of humility does for the situation. Seems like it makes them so much more willing to make the change!

  12. thanks for sharing! I love the “rules”! I think it’s great to set the expectation of participating during service. Great job!

  13. I gave this to my 7-year-old last Sunday and she LOVED it! The best part was watching her give the completed sheet to our pastor. He got to see evidence of a young child who was enthusiastically and whole-heartedly listening to his sermon. Thank you so much for providing this resource.

  14. I love this idea and use something much like it for my older daughter. I keep seeing a picture with a pink and lime green “theme” that leads me to this page every time…is that one available for download? I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Thanks for any help!

  15. I have been looking for something to use with 11 and 12 year old girls. The youngest is very new to church, but the older has grown up in the church. This is perfect! It is simple without being childish. This is a great beginners guide to worship notes. I plan to print them out and put them in a binder so wet can just add more as needed. Thank you so much for this wonderful resource!

  16. Thank you so much for making this available not only to families, but to ministries as well!! I’ll be sharing your site with the families here at Wesley UMC so they can look for more resources to meet their needs as well. 🙂

  17. God Bless You!! Thank You so much for such a wonderful resource. Our church just launched a Spiritual and Academic Program for our youth. I’ve looked all over trying to find a sermon notebook for the Kids. Again Thank You so much!!! This is AMAZING!!!

  18. Hello. I really like your ideas here and I’m wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing how you had these produced (like what company or service?) I just know that my girls would prefer a different cover design and type of book (a slim stitch bound I’m thinking) and I would like to tailor the pages inside to fit better with the structure of our services. I’ve tried looking at Vistaprint and Staples Copy and Print services and a couple others but I can’t find a book printing service that let’s me choose the inside pages. Appreciate if you could share your resource. Thank you!

    1. Have you checked out Amazon’s self-publishing service (CreateSpace)? It’s a great place to start!

  19. Are these no longer available as a free printable? I’m looking for something to use for the children in our church when they join us for worship.
