Memory Verse Cards
We started doing monthly themes at La Vista where a card is given out with a memory verse and the subject is divided into four weekly subpoints. While the lessons on Sunday and Wednesday don't always match the current month's theme, several do and it is nice to have something to aim for when you can't come up with an idea for a lesson or a short talk.
Some of the memory verses are short and simple, some are longer and more challenging. The "trick" to memorizing verses is to understand the flow of ideas. Don't try to memorize a sequence of words because you will forget a key point.
The idea was inspired by Phillip Shumake, a fellow preacher. Each link is to a PDF that can be printed one-sided on 8.5x11 cardstock and creates two cards after being trimmed to 5.5x7.5.
