The Children’s Sermon
You’ll Need:
● A crown

Do This:

SAY: The crown is a symbol of power and authority. Who do you know that wears a
crown? (Pause for responses.) A king or queen wears a crown, right? Being a king is
different from being the president of a country. A president is elected by the
people, but a king isn’t elected, he is born to be king.
Have you seen the movie "The Lion King?" As a lion, Simba was born to be the
"King of the Beasts." Simba sings, "I Just Can't Wait to Be King." Simba was
anxious to become king because he didn't want anyone telling him what to do. He
also wanted to tell everyone else what to do.
Simba had a poor idea of what it means to be a king. The real role of a king is to
look after the needs of his people. A good king is more concerned with caring for
his people than he is in being served.
During His last days on earth, Jesus was arrested and put on trial. When asked if
He was a king, Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this
reason I was born, and for this I came into the world." (Pass around the crown).
Yes, Jesus was a king, but unlike Simba, He was only interested in doing the will of
His Father, God. He was born to be king, but His kingdom is not on this earth -- it’s
in heaven. He only came to earth to make a way for us to live with Him in heaven.
Jesus "just can't wait to be your king." He has invited you to enjoy eternal life in
His heavenly kingdom. Will crown Him as your King today?

PRAY: Heavenly Father, we thank You for sending Your Son to be our Lord and King.
Help us today, and every day, to honor Him, obey Him, and follow His will for our
life. In Jesus' name, amen.


Crown Him King

You’ll Need:
● “Crown Him King” video
● Something to play the video
Do This:
Show the video.

ASK:
● Is it hard or easy for you to think of Jesus as your King? Why?
● Why might caring for people be an important part of being king?

Crown Snacks

You’ll Need:


● Crown Him King How-to video
● Paper plates - one per child
● Napkins - one per child
● Plastic knives - one per child
● Sliced bread - one slice per child
● Small red grapes
● Small round cereal
● Kraft Singles sliced cheese - one per child

Get Ready: Have kids clean their hands.
Do This:
Follow these steps for the “Crown Snacks”:
● Give each child a paper plate, a napkin, a plastic knife, a slice of bread, and a
slice of cheese.
● Instruct kids to cut a crown shape out of the slice of cheese, then lay it flat on
their slice of bread.
● Invite kids to decorate their “Crown Snacks” using the grapes and round cereal
to look like jewels.
● Enjoy.

SAY: Jesus didn’t walk around with a crown on His head, but Christ is the King.
Jesus came to testify to the truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Paper Plate Crowns

You’ll Need:
● Large paper plates - one per child
● Markers
● Scissors
● White glue
● Jewels or beads 

Do This:
Have kids follow these steps to make the “Paper Plate Crowns” craft:
● Give each child a paper plate and a pair of scissors.
● Invite kids to decorate their paper plate using only markers. They can write
today’s memory verse, or draw Jesus as king.
● Once they’ve colored their paper plates, have kids fold their plates in half.
● Instruct kids to draw three lines on their folded paper plate: one down the
center and one on either side of the center line. (It should look similar to a half
of a pizza pie).
● Help kids cut along the lines, stopping one inch from the outer edge of the
plate.
● Open up the plate and you should see eight even triangles.
● Place the paper plate bottom side up and carefully pull back each of the
triangles so they stand up like a crown.
● Invite kids to finish decorating their crowns using beads or jewels.
● When dry, invite children to wear their Paper Plate Crowns on their heads as a
reminder that Jesus Christ is King.

PRAY: Dear God, Thank You for Jesus, the one true king. Thank You for sending
Him to the world to speak the truth and rescue us from sin. In Jesus’ name, amen.
