Christ's Baptism

This activity is based on an idea from Sermons4Kids, called "Make Your Father Proud!"


  1. Read Mark 1.4-11, and emphasise how pleased God was with Jesus.
  2. Show the children some photographs of themselves as babies, and ask their parents to talk about how those photographs make them feel about their children.
  3. Talk about how proud parents are of their own children, and how in Baptism we become God's children.
  4. Talk about how He sends His Holy Spirit to help us to be more like Jesus, so that He can be pleased with us, too.
  5. You might also talk about some of the symbolism of our own Baptisms.
