At the beginning of the summer, hold a Bible Clubs registration night to get children pre-registered for fall. Serve refreshments, introduce the leaders, and have parents fill out a registration card for each of their children. Here is a registration card for each age level of All-Stars for Jesus Bible Clubs that you can download and print out or photocopy. You can print the registration cards in color, or select grayscale on your printer settings to print the cards in black and white. Cut them apart and give some to each Bible Club leader. When a new child joins your Bible Club program, have the parent fill out a card so your teachers are aware of any allergies or special needs the child has. This is also the place to record the child’s birthday and emergency contact information, too. Have the child’s teacher send him a birthday card a few days before his birthday. Children love to get mail!
You can print free postcards by visiting ChristianEdWarehouse.com. Postcards for each Bible club age level are available for downloading and printing in color or in black and white. If you prefer to purchase the postcards rather than printing them yourself, you can order them online or print out an easy order form and fax it to us at 1-800-891-1795. If you prefer to call, use our toll-free number: 1-800-854-1531.
When children learn memory verses, have their Bible Club leader recognize their accomplishments at the end of the year with a special certificate. Hold an awards ceremony and invite parents to attend. Each child who learned at least one verse during the year should receive a certificate. Begin the awards presentation with those children, and end with the ones who have learned the most verses.
You may want to give a special award to the child from each Bible club or age group who has learned the most verses. (All-Stars for Jesus wristbands, pencils, gift Bibles, All-Stars for Jesus pins, All-Stars for Jesus witness bracelet craft kits, bookmarks, and other awards make great incentive gifts.) Let parents applaud after each child is recognized. Have the children stand in the front of the room and hold up their certificates while parents take photos. Close with a prayer thanking God for the Bible and for helping the children hide His Word in their hearts.
