In the World, but Not of the World
Introduction to craft: sermons4kids.com

Remove all blue crayons from the container. Have the students draw a picture of themselves using the remaining crayons (be sure to tell the students to press hard with the crayons while coloring). Next discuss how sometimes it is hard to be the person that God wants us to be (Example: What kind of person does God want us to be? How can we be that person? Etc.) Explain that God wants us to remain the person he made us to be. He does not want us to become stained by the world. Tell the students the blue water color represents being stained by what is happening in the world that is trying to change us from the person God wants us to be. Have the students paint over their picture with blue water color paint. (The wax in the crayons repels the water color paint allowing the picture to show through.) Tell the students that we remain the person God made us to be. We remain faithful because we ask Jesus to help us be separate from the world and the person that God’s wants us to be shines through.

Introduction- Listen to what Jesus said, "I am the vine and you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

If we keep our life connected to Jesus, we will grow. Our life will produce beautiful leaves and delicious fruit. But if we are separated from Jesus, our leaves will wither and die and we will never put forth any fruit. So how does Jesus want us to live?
