Everybody loves a hero! As Christians, we are blessed with a long line of men and women who followed Jesus with all their hearts, making a difference in the world around them!
What a heritage we have!
Apostle Paul, Athanasius, St. Augustine, Pope Gregory, Caedmon, St. Frances, St. Patrick, John Wycliffe, John Huss, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, Lady Jane Grey, John Knox, William Wilberforce, John Newton, Lottie Moon, Amy Carmichael, George Mueller, David Livingstone, Billy Graham, Edith Schaeffer, Jim Eliot, and Brother Andrew come to my mind. They were mighty men and women who changed the world!
From the early Christians who risked their lives to serve Christ to missionaries in the 21st Century who are reaching unreached people groups in the 10/40 Window, there are so many Christian heroes I want my children to learn about. I came up with a really fun idea to teach my children about church history in celebratory way!
We started having Heroes for Jesus Parties. My children loved them! As they got older, they started playing the Christian heroes themselves at the Heroes for Jesus Party.
Would you like to have your own Heroes for Jesus Party?
You can hold a Heroes for Jesus Party inside or outside. We set up stations for each hero and a large table with food and drinks. At each station, a hero, in full costume, shares his testimony and a little about his ministry and leads the children in a game or activity. Many times we watch a Christian movie like Luther at the end of the night.
Do you want to have your own Heroes for Jesus Party?
Celebrate Our Christian Heroes encourages families to give their children true heroes in their lives, shares ideas on how to learn about Christian heroes, gives instructions to host a Heroes for Jesus Party, gives a list of heroes with monologues, costume suggestions, and games, and includes autumn recipes to use at your Heroes for Jesus Party. An additional Bonus is Paul's Missionary Journey to Rome Game with instructions, templates, and rules.
Celebrate Our Christian Heroes is available at Amazon. The E-book is available at PayHIp or Currclick.
