Guide to Hosting


Important information for our Neighborhood Bible Club hosts:

Choose a week when you will host your club and with whom.

Spouse? Friend? Neighbor? Let the Kids’ Life staff know your date and pray for the families you will invite.

Request digital copies of the Bible stories, craft instructions and games.

Take a look at each day’s story and craft. This will give you a good idea of what will happen day to day.

Plan your club’s schedule.

Clubs are between sixty to ninety minutes and can be held whenever it is convenient for you and your family: morning, afternoon, or evening!

  • What time will it start and end?
  • There are four elements of club that will happen each day: Bible story, craft, game(s), and songs. In what order will these take place? Where will these take place?
Consider whether there are health and safety guidelines you want to put in place for your club. 

Will you wear masks or practice social distancing?

Pick up invitations from the Kids’ Life staff and choose a date to pass them out. 

Clubs will not be publicized to other families in the church or community. They are by invitation only so you can focus on connecting with families in your neighborhood.

Look through the Game Guide.

Think of the ages of kids who will be at your club. What games would be fun and appropriate for them to play? You’ll want one or two each day, totaling 20 minutes.

  • Are there materials or supplies you’ll need to purchase or gather for your games?
  • Consider planning a water games day!
Begin learning the theme song and verse songs.
  • You’ll need a speaker to play them through.
  • You may want to start your club on the first day by introducing the theme song.
  • Sing the theme song each day along with the verse for the day
Pick up materials and supplies from your Kids’ Life staff member.

For your ease and convenience, materials and supplies will be provided.

You might want to:
  • Make a sample craft for each day. This will help you to be prepared to lead the kids through the steps for each craft, as well as give you a sample to show the kids what they’ll be making.
  • Ask families to have kids bring water bottles or have a cooler of water and cups available for kids to get a drink after game time.
  • Have a blanket for kids to sit on or ask them to bring a beach towel.
  • Have a rain plan. Where will children go if it rains? Defer to another day?
