Lent bulletin board can have many different styles and designs. You may create one using your own creativity so as to make it more unique and appealing.
The Lenten season is a time when Christians everywhere reflect on the death, burial and resurrection of Christ and how this provided the hope of eternal life to the world. If you’re a pastor or Sunday school director and you want to inspire others to remember the real reason for Lent, a bulletin board is a good idea. If you need ideas for what to put on the board, ask church members and see what they think. You can also talk to your pastor and Christian friends about developing the bulletin board.
Make a simple bulletin board marking the 40 days of Lent to give students insight into Lent’s history. Use a solid background, then choose pictures – such as doves or Jesus knelt in prayer–to mark the 40 days. Make the items in light or pastel colours and number them “1” to “40.” Then create a Lenten journey across the board to symbolize the 40 days of Lent. Schedule an activity each day to convey the message of Lent, then choose a student to mark the day off of the calendar.
Create an active bulletin board to help your students re-evaluate their lifestyles. Make a bulletin board with a child in the centre, thinking and staring upward. Surround him with images such as iPods, cell phones, friends, computers, sports and TVs in a circular fashion. In the upper right corner, show an image of a cross and on the bottom of the board write, “What did He give up?”
Cover the notice board with a background colour of your choice; blue to represent the sky is a good option. Attach a bare tree branch to the notice board (or alternatively, create a bare tree from brown paper and attach it to the board). Give children paper leaves and encourage them to write an item they can give up for the Lenten season as they look forward to Easter. Attach these leaves to the tree or branch on the notice board.
Lenten road map gives children a visual picture of the journey they make from Ash Wednesday through the Lenten season to Easter. Cover the notice board with background paper. Then, use paper to create a winding path traversing the board with a section for each of the 40 days. Label the beginning of the path “Ash Wednesday” and the ending “Easter.” Along the path, place road signs reminding students of Lenten obligations such as prayer, and a traffic light each Friday reminding them to abstain from meat.
