More often than we care to admit, by the time we’ve finished with Sunday lunch, it’s hard to remember what was said in church. It’s sometimes a struggle to keep focused on the message when so much is on your mind. We all know we should take notes to help us remember — but sometimes a blank piece of paper is daunting.
Sermon notes are a simple way to engage with note-taking while listening to a sermon or Bible study! They provide easy to follow prompts to engage your mind (and your creative side) with taking notes.
Below we’ve provided some templates to help you get started. These sermon notes templates are available for instant download and are easy to edit to customize for you or your church!
Choose between two file formats: Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher.
