John the Baptist for Kids
Memory Cross has created a origami folding card that teaches the story of John the Baptist to kids. Designed to be used for Sunday School, Children’s Church and Vacation Bible School. This card is part of our crafts for Sunday School line. Each card contains four panels that never stop folding and is designed as a coloring card. The unique design fascinates children as well as adults and helps children learn the story of John the Baptist.
The John the Baptist card was designed for middle school children as a craft activity to help them remember what was taught in class. Your children can color the card or add Christian stickers or glitter. If you are looking for ideas to help you teach about John the Baptist, visit our friends at Ministry to Children.

There are a number of lessons that we can learn from John the Baptist. He was called to prepare the way for Jesus and faithfully fulfilled his calling. He accepted his role in history gracefully. As Jesus’ ministry and following became greater his disciples came to him and said more people were following Jesus than John. His response was he must become greater and I must become less.
From a human standpoint that can be hard to accept but John was looking at life from God’s point of view. John can help our children start to look at life from God’s point of view. When John was in prison he sent a message to Jesus asking if he was really the Messiah. Jesus response was to tell John all that you have seen today and say blessed is he who does not loose faith.
That story applies to our lives and our children’s lives today. John did not want to be in prison, especially for serving God. There are times in each of our lives where bad things happen even when we are trying to serve God with all our heart. Through this story we can remind our children that God is faithful even when things are not going the way we plan.
