Week 11-God Wants Us To Be Safe

  In today’s Bible story we learned that God had a plan to keep Joseph, Mary, and Jesus safe. God used Joseph to help keep Jesus safe. Our next game is a lot of fun, but you’ll need to help each other stay safe.    We used pool noodles to advance the boards. Each child got a turn to be on the board as we moved them across the floor.

  Each member of your team will take a turn “dressing up” as a king or queen.    Once you’re completely “dressed,” hold up the candy cane as a scepter while the others in your group shout “But  Jesus  is the king!” Then remove the clothes, and let the next person take his or her turn. Let’s see which group can get everyone dressed the fastest.

Week 9-Jesus is God’s Gift

  Jesus is God’s gift.   In the Bible, God’s people were waiting for a Savior who would lead them. But Jesus wasn’t just a gift to them way back then. Jesus is God’s gift to us today!   Let’s make a cool craft that will give you a chance to thank God for Jesus—the best gift of all.

Week 8-Jesus Is The Light Of The World

  Jesus came to bring God’s awesomeness to people on earth so we could know about God’s love and power. That’s why we say that Jesus is the light of the world. He came to shine God’s love, power, and glory to people.   The light in your lantern will eventually stop glowing, but Jesus is  always  the light of the world! When your lantern stops glowing, you can put it on a windowsill or near a lamp and still watch the light shine through.

Week 7-God Does The Impossible

As we are looking at the Bible today, we’ve been learning that an angel came to Mary and told her that she was going to have a baby—and that he would be king over Israel and everyone! That seemed impossible to Mary, but she trusted God to do something that seemed impossible to her. Only God can do what seems impossible to us. He did the impossible—and something wonderful—when he brought Jesus to earth for us.

Week 6-Halloween Celebration

We celebrated with a costume parade, reading the book “The Pumpkin Gospel”, played a game and painted pumpkins.

Week 5-God Shows Mercy Even When We Don’t

  We’re learning that God shows mercy even when we don’t. It can be easy to hold grudges against others instead of showing mercy, but holding grudges doesn’t solve anything. It actually makes things harder for you and others around you. Our next game will show you what that’s like.  The kids worked together to keep all the balloons in the air.

Week 4-God Won’t Let Us Down

  In the Bible today we learned about Daniel and the men who schemed against him so that Daniel ended up being thrown into a pit with hungry lions. Talk about a bad day! But Daniel kept following God and doing what he was supposed to do even when others were against him.    In our game, you’ll do your best to keep doing what you’re supposed to do while others are doing the opposite.

 We played until it was only one person against everyone else. This showed us how Daniel felt and how God won’t let us down.

Week 3-God Helps Us Stand Strong

We learned how God helped Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego stand strong in the fiery furnace. The families made marionettes out of straws to show how we can help them ‘stand strong’. But when we look to God he can help us stand strong.

Week 2-God Knows Who We Really Are

 We made sleep masks.  God watches over us. The Bible says he lets us rest in green meadows and lie beside peaceful streams. When we trust God to watch over us, we can rest easy. We don’t need to be always alert or worrying. We can put on our sleep masks and rest in God’s peace.
