For Kids: Christ the King | Year A

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed

Big Idea: Jesus is Our King (the Gospel)

Story: "Christ the King" - Spark Story Bible, pg. 474

Bible Story Video: Kingdom

Ask: Did you guys know that the church has its own calendar? What's the last month of the year in a normal calendar? Did you know today is the very last day in the church calendar? It's called "Christ the King".

Next week, it will be a new church year! So today is almost like New Year's Eve in the church. How do you usually celebrate New Year's Eve? ... Well, in the church, we have a party too - that's why the Sanctuary is decorated in white and gold, why we sing certain songs, and why we carry the cross in and out of the Sanctuary. It's a special day.

Say: All year, we've talked about Jesus and His upside-down Kingdom. So, to end the year, we are reminded that Jesus is our King and we are a part of His Kingdom. That mean, we want to act like Jesus and follow the ways of His Kingdom, which means loving God, and loving each other.


Song: Jesus is the King

Activity Sheets or Play

After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play out a story that fits with the lesson).

End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.

(If you need more time)

  • Go around the room and ask the children to share something they are thankful for this week.

  • Ask them if there is anything or anyone they would like to pray for this week.

Ending Song: The Lord's Prayer
