A treasure trove of unique, ready-to-use children's sermons, requiring little or no preparation.
Preachers spend enough time agonizing over what they're going to preach about on Sunday. They don't need to worry about the children's sermon, too. Because children think differently, the children's sermon time is sometimes an "anything goes" event. The Abingdon Children's Sermon Library: Volume I will give preachers, and others who give the children's sermon, a ready resource of experiential children's sermons to turn to, and will take the panic out of preparing the children's sermon time.
