Little People Big Word was started in November 2009. It is a collection of lectionary based children’s sermons. Everyone is welcome to use these sermons free of charge. Each sermon is designed to help children learn a little more about God’s Word by combining objects and/or child friendly references with short lessons.
The children’s sermons follow the Revised Common Lectionary. Each week, a sermon is posted that corresponds to one of the four lectionary passages for the appointed Sunday.
The goal of this blog is to help pastors and those who work with children in the church to deliver theologically sound, Biblically-based, enthusiastic children’s sermons each Sunday.
Danyelle Ditmer is the creator and author of Little People Big Word.
