This new downloadable KidMin lesson is a spin-off of the popular app and gives your kids’ ministry a brilliant lesson created by 19 games that teach points from God vital for our families to live “well,” as in Deuteronomy 4:40:

  • – Obeying God’s instructions will cause your family’s lives to go well.
  • – A good father is happy to obey God’s instructions.
  • – A good father is a model for his family of a godly life.
  • – A good father trains his family in God’s Word.
  • – A good father handles his own family well.

Ultimately, each person participating in this service, whether kids, or adults and kids in an all-family service, will be challenged believe in God’s almighty power to bring healing to their individual families so that it’s members are happy to obey God and their lives can go “well!”

If you have never experienced this INCREDIBLY POPULAR game app, here is what you can expect from the “What’s the Word for Father’s Day?” spin-off.

After then Intro Round, there are four rounds of play, each climaxing with a KEYWORD you use for your teaching/discussion point. Each game consists of 4 pictures, an empty grid showing how many letters are in the word to be solved, a grid of 12 letters to use in solving the secret word, a HELP icon (when clicked reveals one letter), and a PROBLEM SOLVERS icon to solve the secret word.

Each game shows 4 pictures that have one word in common among them. For example, if you see a fish bowl, a cereal bowl, someone bowling, and a pet food bowl, the word is BOWL!
