Easter Sketch Talk

Yesterday morning, I learned a valuable lesson about the church at Easter, technology and children’s ministry. On an Easter morning, it doesn’t matter how fast your Internet is. It probably won’t be able to handle the scores of people that are connected to your wifi. 

The first hour of children’s church, I drew the lesson on a whiteboard. The second hour, I was able to use my cell phone hotspot to draw the lesson on my iPad.

If you are presenting a lesson wirelessly, always have a backup plan. I am thankful a whiteboard easel was handy. I am also thankful my cell phone hotspot answered the call.

I drew these sketches in Air Sketch Pro

Here is the end result from my iPad. Happy Easter!

Story Figures: Jesus Calms the Storm

Illustration for a curriculum activity. I drew these figures for the story of Jesus and the storm. Based on John 6:16-€“21; Matthew 14:22-€“36

I drew this activity a couple of years ago. It was fun working on this one. I imagined how the kids would act out the story as one child would “rock” the ocean and another child would add voices to the scared disciples. I’ve always admired Peter’s chutzpah in this story too!
