Item description for Story Time at the Altar: 86 Messages for Children by Elaine M. Ward...

Overview
Jesus told stories, and the scriptures are the sacred story of God and his people ... and since children love stories as well, what could be a more appropriate way to plant the seeds of faith than with stories? This outstanding collection provides 86 enchanting parables that you can share during "children's time" on Sunday morning, as well as at home, school, camp, or any other setting where young people are gathered together and want to hear a story. Brief talking points and questions in each message help youngsters clearly understand the good news of God's incredible grace and unconditional love. Many of the stories illustrate biblical themes -- but a wide variety of other topics and approaches are included, along with a convenient scripture index. Written in a simple, direct style that children of all ages can easily relate to, these delightful stories will inspire joy and hope. Stories include: * Elijah And The Voice (1 Kings 19:11) * Timothy's Questions (Psalm 100:3a) * The Aspen And The Wind (Mark 10:44) * The House On The Rock (Matthew 7:24-27) * Teach Us To Pray (Matthew 14:22-33) ... and many more!
