“Transforming Children in Christ through His Church”

Sharing the Word of God using Play-Doh

Miguel Angel Castellanos shared this story

from an EGM leadership program at Iglesia Monte Sinai in Oaxaca, Mexico…

Nine brothers and sisters in Christ, both young and old, participated in a children’s ministry teacher training at Iglesia Cristiana Monte Sinai. They were very attentive during class. I shared about the mission of Every Generation Ministries (EGM) and went through one of the Bible lessons from Jeremiah 18:1-6. I gave them each play-doh to make something that represented their lives. When they finished, the play-doh figures looked great. Then I took one of the figures in my hands and began to change it, molding it to an entirely new shape. When I asked how this made them feel, some of the participants expressed that they felt uncomfortable. One person even shared a story at the end of the class with tears in her eyes.

Ana’s story…

“The truth is that I have been very hard like the play-doh. I never wanted to be molded by God, because I believed my life was mine. God showed me through this example that I need to let Him do what he wants with my life and not get in the way. He is the owner of my life and now I am going to let Him do His will in me.”

Effective ministry to children begins with the Word of God…

children’s volunteers share His Word with children in relational ways.

EGM’s Model Children Worker development program provides ministry workers around the world with Bible teaching resources that are designed specifically for children. If something as simple as play-doh inspired Ana to share her testimony, imagine what it would do for a young child.
