Can yucky things declare the glory of God?

If all of God’s creation is good, and the Bible says it is, why is so much of it just so… gross? It’s easy to find God in the beautiful parts of creation, but even the gross things can teach us about God. Mud, barf, boogers, and scabs can remind us how God takes away our “gross” sin so we can do good to others. In Gross But Good 4-Week Children's Ministry Curriculum, kids will learn that God can turn gross things into good things.


Gross But Good Lessons Overview:

Memory Verse:

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” Psalm 40:2



Scripture: Luke 19:1-10 Zacchaeus

Mud reminds us that God’s creation is messy. It became messy when sin entered the world. When we walk through mud, we leave muddy tracks everywhere we go. As Christians, we need to let God clean off the mud of sin off of us so that instead of spreading mud, we can spread God’s love to others. Then we can experience the same transformation that Zacchaeus did when he met Jesus and went from cheating people to blessing people. Objective: Kids will learn, “I need Jesus to change my heart from bad to good”.



Scripture: Matthew 5:21-26, Go be reconciled

Seriously, God made barf. It’s true! As gross as it is, it serves an important purpose: it gets yucky, unhealthy things out of our bodies. God doesn’t want us to fill ourselves with bitterness, anger, and grudges. He wants us to “vomit” these things out and make peace with people who have wronged us.

Objective: Kids will learn, “With Jesus I can forgive and let go of my grudges”.




Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-20, The Armor of God

What would happen if we didn’t have boogers? We’d get sick a lot more often. Boogers are part of our body’s defense system, standing guard to keep yucky germs and other invaders away. God wants us to guard our hearts and minds from sinful things and fill ourselves only with goodness.

Objective: Kids will learn, “studying God’s word can help me focus my mind on good things and not bad”.




Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 New Creation

Scabs are gross. Scabs are the result of injuries, often from the crazy things we do, and there’s nothing we can do on our own to make them go away. You can’t pick at them. You have to let them heal. Sin is like a scab because nothing we do can take it away. Fortunately, Jesus came and died for us so that he could remove our “scabs” once and for all.

Objective: Kids will learn, “Jesus took the punishment I deserved so that I could be made new”.


Each Lesson Includes:

  • Make It Stick! Parent Sheet - so you can let mom and dad know what kids are learning each week and look like a rockstar teacher who's thought of everything.
  • Memory Verse - so that you can make sure kids are getting Scripture in their minds and hearts every single week and you can feel like each lesson was a success even when it seems like 90% of your lesson time is spent saying things like "calm down", "let's be quiet", "hands to yourself!"
  • Skit or Puppet Show - so you have a way to easily connect the lesson with your hands-on and visual learners. No drama team? No problem! Just hand the script to the kids. They'll have a blast and think you're the coolest.
  • Craft Activity - so you can give kids a physical reminder of the Bible lesson (and give yourself an activity to keep them busy until mom and dad come back!)
  • Game - so kids don't leave and say church was BORING! Games are so important to help keep kids engaged. Our large group games always include a "What's The Point" section to help you connect the game to the lesson.
  • Large Group Lesson - so you can present the Bible story in a clear and fun way, which means now you can enjoy Saturday nights instead of stressing over putting a lesson together!
  • Small-Group Discussion - so you can find out who was paying attention and who was talking to their neighbor.  Just kidding, this is a great way for you to build deeper relationships with your kiddos after each lesson, which means you're going to care about them so much you'll cry like a baby when they graduate and go to middle school :(
  • More! - Yes, there is even more than all of that so that you can easily put together the perfect lesson for your ministry each weekend, which means no more agonizing over how to adjust complicated lesson plans.
