My First Worship Notebook

Looking for great gift ideas for your children?


How about a great gift idea that’s free?! 

It’s a worship notebook for your child. To ease them into note-taking, I have limited the writing to their favorite song and the sermon title and verses for the day, along with a spot to tally up common words they may hear during the sermon. Most importantly, I included a large framed spot for their artwork.   They can take notes right along side you, like the big kid they are!

Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does no need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.  2 Timothy 2:15
I started this with my 8year old (now 9). He stays in “big church” with us now, so I thought he was ready for something more to help him focus on the message. 

I had seen a kids worship note page on the internet, but I didn’t want to have to keep printing off a new page each week.  Plus, what to do with all those loose pages?  I have a notebook that I use to keep my sermon notes in, so I decided to make one for my son, but something more on his level.  Here are some pics from his notebook.  (Notice I have made a few changes from his notebook – my son even helped me with the changes!)

You can customize this for your child by copying the cover onto their favorite color of cardstock.  Once you’ve made all your copies (directions are included in the download) you can take it into an office store and have it spiral bound for just a couple of dollars.  And if you are planning on giving your child a new Bible for Christmas, this would make a great addition to that gift.  Or even by itself, it’s a great gift to say how grown-up you think your child is becoming.
Hope this helps with your gift giving quest!

  1. How creative is that? It turned out great! Thank you for sharing your ideas with us on The Sunday Showcase

  2. This is a great way to help kids stay engaged in the service!

  3. What a great idea!! I bet your kids feel like a million bucks with their own notebook in church =-) Thanks for linking up to TGIF Linky Party! I look forward to seeing you again next week,
    Beth =-)

  4. Love this! We do something similar, but for my 3yo son (so obviously not as detailed!) I'm working on putting together more of a booklet like you have, as his abilities are increasing.
