“Teach me, O Lord, to follow your directions” Psalm 119:33

Have the kids walk the path marked with arrows made out of construction paper marked on the floor. Each arrow will be one word of the verse. Have the kids walk through the path saying each word as they go…they will need to be prompted as they can’t read or even speak that well sometimes! Just repeating it over and over is the most important. And continue this until they have lost interest.

7. Craft

Butterfly magnet clothespin

Materials:

  • Clothespins
  • white coffee filters with poem printed ont he sides where the wings are going to be

The Bible: Good Instructions (K-1) (Free Sunday School Lessons for Children)

Date Class Scripture Theme
May 2 — 2010 K and 1 Proverbs 3:13-17 The Bible is full of good instructions; God’s words are more precious than any treasure.

Prepared by: Teresa Klassen

1.         Opener: The Great Adventure (10-15 minutes)

Materials needed:

  • Painter’s tape
  • Signs with descriptions
  • Clipboard, pen and paper for helpers

Instructions:

  • Depending on the size of your group, mark off one or more curvy paths with painter’s tape on the floor…you can do as a solid or dotted lines with the occasional arrow to keep moving them along.
  • Along the way have 4 DANGER SIGNS as described below.
  • Give each leader a clip-board and pen so that they can write down the kids answers (for older grades, just have one of the students be the leader of the group)

Teacher says: All right everyone, we are going to start off our morning by going on an adventure. You will see that I have two routes marked off for us to follow and arrows where to go…but every once and a while you will see a spot marked DANGER.  When you come to a spot marked DANGER you need to read what it says and talk with each other about what you would do.  Your leader will write down your answers.

DANGER SIGN 1:

Oh no! There is a runaway camel coming towards you putting your whole camp in danger.  You don’t want to hurt the camel because a camel could be very helpful in carrying all your stuff on this adventure. You need some instructions but you don’t have any. What will you do?

DANGER SIGN 2: (at this point, make waves with the tape on the floor so it looks like you are in water)

Oh No!  You need to cross a river but there are piranhas with very sharp teeth in the river. You have to get to the other side. You need some instructions but you don’t have any. What will you do?

DANGER SIGN 3:

Oh no! You caught lobsters for everyone in your group to eat for dinner but the lobsters escaped in the camp kitchen. You need some instructions but you don’t have any. How will you catch them without getting your fingers pinched off?

DANGER SIGN 4:

Oh no! It is night-time and you are near the end of your journey. You have found the cabin where you will sleep for the night but the door is locked solid and the windows are too high to climb through.  You will need to break through the door but how? You need some instructions but you don’t have any. What will you do?

When they come to the end of the journey…there is a paper that says “congratulations, you made it through the adventure and now you will get your reward. X marks the spot and the way you get there is, first you have to….” With the rest of the words smudged out or unreadable.

The Teacher and Helpers are at the end of this pathway ready to answer questions. When the kids say, “We can’t read it” or “it doesn’t tell us where our reward is” you can pick up from there.

Teacher: There really is a reward but it is going to be impossible to find without the right instructions.  I am going to give you those instructions, but first I want to talk about those  Danger signs (have the groups stay together and sit down).

2.         We Need Real Instructions (5-8 minutes)

Now, you guessed at some of the things you could do for each of those Danger signs, but did you know that there are actually RIGHT answers for those dangerous situations?  There is a book that gives you the real instructions on what to do about each one of those things!! The book is called The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook.

1.            What was an idea you had about stopping the runaway camel? – I am going to listen to 2 answers…

Here are the real instructions of what to do: If you can grab the camels reigns. You can’t pull the reigns or you will break the camel’s nose. So pull the reigns in which ever way the camel turns his head and he will begin to run in circles. It will soon grow tired, give up, and sit down and then you can jump off.

2.            What would you have done if you had to cross a river that had piranhas in it? – I am going to listen to 2 answers…

Here are the real instructions of what to do: there are some different things you should be aware of when it comes to dangerous fishes like piranhas, but one thing that has a good chance of working is crossing the river at night. Most piranhas sleep at night and swim away if disturbed. So walk quietly through the river, at night and you will have a better chance of making it across.

3.            What would you do if all your lobsters got loose in the kitchen? – I am going to listen to 2 answers…

Here are the real instructions of what to do: Best thing to do is to wear oven mitts so that your hands are protected. Then grab them and put them in a pot with water in it and put on the lid!

4.            Remember the locked door? What would you do if you came to your cabin at night and the door was locked? How would you get through the door? – I am going to listen to 2 answers…

Here are the real instructions of what to do: Best thing to do is NOT to try to break it down by running against it and hitting it with your shoulder. The best way is to use your foot and kick right near the door knob and lock, if you hit it there you will break the lock and you will be able to get in!

3.         Now the Reward! (5-8 minutes)

Materials needed: A sheet with bad instructions and a sheet with good instructions. These are folded so the kids don’t know which ones they are getting.

Teacher says: Now, what about the reward? You came to the end and what did you find? (let the kids answer). The instructions were torn away or were unclear. The only way you would find that reward without the instructions is if you took hours and hours to look through everything in this whole building. That’s why good instructions are so important.

There are good instructions and bad instructions.

So, now I am going to give you the instructions to find your reward. I am going to time you by counting to 20 to see if you can find the reward before I get to 20.

Keep the children in their original groups and then give the instructions out. One group will have the real instructions and it will lead them directly to the reward (determine what the reward should be and then wrap it up nicely and place it in the spot your good instructions lead to). The instructions should lead the kids directly there, with no chasing around so that they can do it in the time-frame of your counting. The other bad instructions will be all confusing…

The Good Instructions should also say bring the reward back to the teacher and he/she will share it with the whole group.

4.         God’s Good Instructions Game (10 minutes)

Teacher says: Some of you had good instructions and the rest had bad ones.  What happened when you got bad instructions? (let the kids answer). What happened when you had good instructions? (let the kids answer). When we have the right instructions, we know EXACTLY WHAT TO DO EVERY TIME!

Did you know that every day we are hearing GOOD INSTRUCTIONS and BAD INSTRUCTIONS and we need to make a decision about which ones we will obey.  Good instructions lead us to live a good life.  Bad instructions are confusing and can mix us up and lead us to do all kinds of things that will hurt us.

God has given us the Bible and it is full of GOOD INSTRUCTIONS. Just like our good instructions led us to a delicious reward, God’s instructions also lead us to live His way. That is why God’s Words that we find in the Bible are better than any treasure!

Now, I am going to need you to decide what is an instruction that is found in the Bible, and what is an instruction that is NOT found in the Bible. To do this we will play a game.

  • Have everyone line up at one end of the classroom
  • You will read out a list and they will have to say “Bible” or “Not The Bible”
  • If it is the Bible, they can take 2 steps forward
  • If it is not the Bible, they will have to take 2 steps back

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Teacher concludes: God’s instructions from the Bible are always good for us! God’s instructions from the Bible take us to the places that are good for us. God’s words are so wise. They are a treasure. In fact. Listen to this verse from the Bible

5.         God’s Words Are A Treasure (3 minutes)

Ahead of time print these words in a larger font and put them in a bible and then sprinkle silver glitter over them so that it is loose in the Bible. When you go to read it, carefully open it up and hold the Bible as if it is precious. * I have changed the language a bit to be understood by this age-group

1. The first time you read it, just read it (you will have to read the words through the glitter)

Proverbs 3:13-17 You are happy when listen to God’s wise words. God’s wise words are better than silver and better than gold!  It is more precious than any treasure!

That means that God’s words are so good, so wonderful that they are more precious than silver even! Let me read that again and listen carefully…

2. The second time you read it then pause at the word “silver and gold” and just gently blow the glitter so that it blows over their heads and falls like rain…(have a little extra on hand in case you need some)

Proverbs 3:13-17 You are happy when listen to God’s wise words. God’s wise words are better than silver and better than gold….

Children, as you are learning how to read, you will want to read your Bible because Jesus is wanting to give you very good, wonderful, precious instructions to show you how to live a good life and to love God. God’s words are more precious than silver and gold!

6.         Bible verse sheet for this month – coloring activity

The sheet will say “Parents, today we talked about how God’s Instructions are more precious than silver or gold or any treasure!  This is our memory verse for May” and the word instructions will be an outlined word that the children can decorate however they like with glitter and sequins and anything else that looks treasure-like…

Psalm 119:33: “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your instructions; then I will keep them to the end.”

7.         Prayer and Free-Time

Take the time to pray with the children and over them.

If the weather is nice, let them enjoy the yard (please make sure you have someone supervising) but make sure they clean up before they leave the yard. If children are inside as well you will need someone inside and outside.

Clean Up!

Since our building is used for many different things, we need to make sure we clean up after ourselves. You can definitely have the kids help you do this near the end of the morning!!

  • Please use the BAG provided to put all the left-over items into it, and then you can leave your bag in the classroom.
  • Please pick up all the garbage and put it in the trash
  • If there are chairs or stools, please fold or stack them and put them away
  • Please turn the heat down (applicable for youth room and Gazebo) to 10 degrees
  • Please make sure any TVs/DVDs/Projectors are powered off
  • Please make sure all toys are put away

Thank you so very much!

Children, as you are learning how to read, you will want to read your Bible because Jesus is wanting to give you very good, wonderful, precious instructions to show you how to live a good life and to love God. God’s words are more precious than silver and gold!

6.         Bible verse sheet for this month (find it)

There will be an instruction sheet on where to find the words to this verse. There are two copies of each word. The kids need to follow the instructions to find the words and then paste them onto a sheet to come up with the verse in the right order.

Psalm 119:33: “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your instructions; then I will keep them to the end.”

Clean Up!

Good Instructions (Grade 4-6) (Free Sunday School Lessons for Children)

Date Class Scripture Theme
May 2 — 2010 Grade 4,5,6 Proverbs 3:13-17 The Bible is full of good instructions; God’s words are more precious than any treasure.

Prepared by: Teresa Klassen

1.         Opener: The Great Adventure (10-15 minutes)

Materials needed:

  • Painter’s tape
  • Signs with descriptions
  • Clipboard, pen and paper for helpers

*  Make up two routes with the tape and space out the folded danger signs in order (1,2, 3, 4) And then the “End” sign at the end of each route.  If you want to continue the route outside, you can using the sidewalk chalk to mark the route.

Instructions:

  • Depending on the size of your group, mark off one or more curvy paths with painter’s tape on the floor…you can do as a solid or dotted lines with the occasional arrow to keep moving them along.
  • Along the way have 4 DANGER SIGNS as described below.
  • Give each leader a clip-board and pen so that they can write down the kids answers (for older grades, just have one of the students be the leader of the group)

Teacher says: All right everyone, we are going to start off our morning by going on an adventure. You will see that I have two routes marked off for us to follow and arrows where to go…but every once and a while you will see a spot marked DANGER.  When you come to a spot marked DANGER you need to read what it says and talk with each other about what you would do.  Your leader will write down your answers.

DANGER SIGN 1:

Oh no! There is a runaway camel coming towards you putting your whole camp in danger.  You don’t want to hurt the camel because a camel could be very helpful in carrying all your stuff on this adventure. You need some instructions but you don’t have any. What will you do?

DANGER SIGN 2: (at this point, make waves with the tape on the floor so it looks like you are in water)

Oh No!  You need to cross a river but there are piranhas with very sharp teeth in the river. You have to get to the other side. You need some instructions but you don’t have any. What will you do?

DANGER SIGN 3:

Oh no! You caught lobsters for everyone in your group to eat for dinner but the lobsters escaped in the camp kitchen. You need some instructions but you don’t have any. How will you catch them without getting your fingers pinched off?

DANGER SIGN 4:

Oh no! It is night-time and you are near the end of your journey. You have found the cabin where you will sleep for the night but the door is locked solid and the windows are too high to climb through.  You will need to break through the door but how? You need some instructions but you don’t have any. What will you do?

When they come to the end of the journey…there is a paper that says “congratulations, you made it through the adventure and now you will get your reward. X marks the spot and the way you get there is, first you have to….” With the rest of the words smudged out or unreadable.

The Teacher and Helpers are at the end of this pathway ready to answer questions. When the kids say, “We can’t read it” or “it doesn’t tell us where our reward is” you can pick up from there.

Teacher: There really is a reward but it is going to be impossible to find without the right instructions.  I am going to give you those instructions, but first I want to talk about those  Danger signs (have the groups stay together and sit down).

2.         We Need Real Instructions (5-8 minutes)

Now, you guessed at some of the things you could do for each of those Danger signs, but did you know that there are actually RIGHT answers for those dangerous situations?  There is a book that gives you the real instructions on what to do about each one of those things!! The book is called The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook.

1.            What was an idea you had about stopping the runaway camel?

Here are the real instructions of what to do: If you can grab the camels reigns. You can’t pull the reigns or you will break the camel’s nose. So pull the reigns in which ever way the camel turns his head and he will begin to run in circles. It will soon grow tired, give up, and sit down and then you can jump off.

2.            What would you have done if you had to cross a river that had piranhas in it?

Here are the real instructions of what to do: there are some different things you should be aware of when it comes to dangerous fishes like piranhas, but one thing that has a good chance of working is crossing the river at night. Most piranhas sleep at night and swim away if disturbed. So walk quietly through the river, at night and you will have a better chance of making it across.

3.            What would you do if all your lobsters got loose in the kitchen?

Here are the real instructions of what to do: Best thing to do is to wear oven mitts so that your hands are protected. Then grab them and put them in a pot with water in it and put on the lid!

4.            Remember the locked door? What would you do if you came to your cabin at night and the door was locked? How would you get through the door?

Here are the real instructions of what to do: Best thing to do is NOT to try to break it down by running against it and hitting it with your shoulder. The best way is to use your foot and kick right near the door knob and lock, if you hit it there you will break the lock and you will be able to get in!

3.         Now the Reward! (5-8 minutes)

Materials needed: A sheet with bad instructions and a sheet with good instructions. These are folded so the kids don’t know which ones they are getting.

Teacher says: Now, what about the reward? You came to the end and what did you find? (let the kids answer). The instructions were torn away or were unclear. The only way you would find that reward without the instructions is if you took hours and hours to look through everything in this whole building. That’s why good instructions are so important.

There are good instructions and bad instructions.

So, now I am going to give you the instructions to find your reward. I am going to time you by counting to 20 to see if you can find the reward before I get to 20.

Keep the children in their original groups and then give the instructions out. One group will have the real instructions and it will lead them directly to the reward (determine what the reward should be and then wrap it up nicely and place it in the spot your good instructions lead to). The instructions should lead the kids directly there, with no chasing around so that they can do it in the time-frame of your counting. The other bad instructions will be all confusing…

The Good Instructions should also say bring the reward back to the teacher and he/she will share it with the whole group.

4.         God’s Good Instructions Game (10 minutes)

Teacher says: Some of you had good instructions and the rest had bad ones.  What happened when you got bad instructions? (let the kids answer). What happened when you had good instructions? (let the kids answer). When we have the right instructions, we know EXACTLY WHAT TO DO EVERY TIME!

Did you know that every day we are hearing GOOD INSTRUCTIONS and BAD INSTRUCTIONS and we need to make a decision about which ones we will obey.  Good instructions lead us to live a good life.  Bad instructions are confusing and can mix us up and lead us to do all kinds of things that will hurt us.

What are some places that we can hear BAD INSTRUCTIONS? (get the kids to interact with this)

God has given us the Bible and it is full of GOOD INSTRUCTIONS. Just like our good instructions led us to a delicious reward, God’s instructions also lead us to live His way. That is why God’s Words that we find in the Bible are better than any treasure!

Now, I am going to need you to decide what is an instruction that is found in the Bible, and what is an instruction that is NOT found in the Bible. To do this we will play a game.

  • Divide your group into two
  • Run this like a gameshow with two contestants facing each other across a small table, with a “Taboo” buzzer in between them. For each question the teacher picks new contestants and marks the score on a scoreboard
  • You will read out a question and they will have to hit the buzzer first to say “Bible” or “Not The Bible”

Card 1:

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Card 2:

Love your neighbor as you love yourself

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Card 3:

Be kind to those who are kind to you

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: Not the Bible! That’s not a good instruction! (we are to be kind to everyone)

Card 4:

You can pray about everything

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Card 5

Children obey your parents most of the time

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: Not the Bible! That’s not a good instruction! (we are to obey our parents, not pick and choose if we want to or not)

Card 6

If someone is unkind to you then you can stay mad at them for however long you want

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: Not the Bible! That’s not a good instruction!

Card 7

Forgive people, just like you have been forgiven.

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Card 8

Care for the widow, the orphan, the prisoner, the poor

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Card 9

God’s Word is like a lamp to our feet

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Card 10

Trust in the Lord at all times

Is that the “Bible” or “Not The Bible”?

Answer: The Bible. That’s a good instruction!

Teacher concludes: God’s instructions from the Bible are always good for us! God’s instructions from the Bible take us to the places that are good for us. God’s words are so wise. They are a treasure. In fact. Listen to this verse from the Bible

5.         God’s Words Are A Treasure (10-15 minutes) – DVD and discussion

Teacher: It is interesting when you read what the Bible says about God’s wise words…in the book of Proverbs which is a book all about living wisely, it says

Proverbs 3:13-17 Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding. For the profit of wisdom is better than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.

That is saying a lot.  God’s Words are more precious than gold? Take a look at this little video just to see how precious gold is and how hard people work to find it.

Show “Gold” DVD (we used a portion of this: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/767317/gold_most_precious_metal/)

Read the verse again: Proverbs 3:13-17 Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding. For the profit of wisdom is better than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.

Discuss

That means that God’s words are so good, so wonderful that they are more precious than silver or gold even! In some countries where people can’t get a Bible easily, they will sell everything they have to get one. Or if they have one, they will share that one bible with all their neighbors.  In many countries people spend hours and hours memorizing the Bible because they aren’t able to own one, so they want to remember those words in their minds….

Do you have some ideas of how God’s Word could possibly be more precious than silver or gold?

Ideas – use these to generate discussion about why knowing this would be important and precious…

  • In a world where people don’t know who they are, they Bible tells us that we are precious sons and daughters of the most high God
  • In a world where people are confused about what is right and wrong, the Bible tells us what is right or wrong
  • For people who don’t know how a Good Father should be, the Bible shows us that
  • In a world that is not loving, the Bible teaches us to do the opposite…can you imagine if we didn’t listen to God’s words on that?
  • In a world where people believe they can treat their enemies poorly, the Bible teaches to treat our enemies with love…
  • Etc.

6.         Bible verse sheet for this month (find it)

There will be an instruction sheet on where to find the words to this verse. There are two copies of each word. The kids need to follow the instructions to find the words and then paste them onto a sheet to come up with the verse in the right order.

Psalm 119:33: “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your instructions; then I will keep them to the end.”

Clean Up!

Since our building is used for many different things, we need to make sure we clean up after ourselves. You can definitely have the kids help you do this near the end of the morning!!

  • Please use the BAG provided to put all the left-over items into it, and then you can leave your bag in the classroom.
  • Please pick up all the garbage and put it in the trash
  • If there are chairs or stools, please fold or stack them and put them away
  • Please turn the heat down (applicable for youth room and Gazebo) to 10 degrees
  • Please make sure any TVs/DVDs/Projectors are powered off

Caring For The Poor (K-1) (Free Sunday School Lessons for Children)

Date Class Scripture Theme
May 30 — 2010 K-1 Proverbs 14:31 “The one who oppresses the poor insults his Creator, but whoever shows favor to the needy honors him”

Giving to the poor shows that we love God because we care about the things He cares about.

Prepared by: Teresa Klassen

1.         Are You Interested In What I am Interested in? (8 minutes)

For this activity, we just want to show how when we are interested in what someone else is interested in we move towards them and do the things they do.

Have all the children stand in the center of the room.

Teacher says: When we are getting to know people, we often ask questions about what they like or don’t like.  So, I would like to ask you some questions and that will help me to know what is important to you.

  1. 1. If you like Batman go to that end of the room (point in one direction), if you like Barbie go to this end of the room (point to the other side of the room). Look at all the people who are interested in the same thing that you are!
  2. If you like carrots go to this end of the room, if you like corn go to this end of the room. Look at all the people who like the same foods that you do!
  3. If you like strawberry icecream go to this end of the room, if you like chocolate icecream go to this end of the room. Look at all the people who like the same treat as you do!
  4. On the playground, if you like going on the climbing bars go to this end of the room, if you like to go on the swings go to this end of the room. Look at all the people who like to do the same things that you do!
  5. One more question, if you like to get up early in the morning go to this end of the room, if you like to sleep in a long time go to this end of the room. Look at all the people who like getting up like you do, and look at all the people who like sleeping in like you do.

Teacher says: OK, now just stay there for a minute. Your answers tell me a lot about what you like and what you don’t like. What if Jesus was standing in the center of the room and we had the chance to ask him questions. Let’s come back to the middle and now, let’s try to think like Jesus thinks.

  1. What if we asked Jesus, do you like to tell the truth (point in one direction) or to lie (point in another direction) where do you think Jesus would go stand? (have the children go to the side of the room they think is the right side). Jesus would look at you and say, “That’s great! You like to be honest like I am honest”
  2. What if we asked Jesus, do you like to visit just with adults (point in one direction) or do you like being with adults and children? (point in another direction). Jesus would look at you and say, “That’s great! I am glad you know that I like to visit with adults and I like to visit with children just the same!”
  3. What if we were to ask Jesus a tricky question, think about this one! Jesus do you like being with people who are good and nice and clean and kind (point in one direction) or do you like being with all people, including people who have gotten into all kinds of trouble and might be poor and dirty, people who might not work and beg for their money and whose clothes might even smell.

* If the children don’t know which side to go to, just walk over to the side of the right answer and invite everyone to join you there. “This is where Jesus would stand, because Jesus loves all people. Jesus had friends who were good and kind and obedient, but Jesus also made a point of being friends with all sorts of people who needed a lot of help – he loved to be with people that others wouldn’t have anything to do with. Some of these people were poor and sad and lonely; some of them were even kind of bad and disobedient and criminals. He cared about them, he wanted to help them and he asks us to do the same. To care about people and to love people.

2.         Who Is Better? (8 minutes)

For this activity, have a picture of someone who looks very well taken care of, maybe even wealthy. And someone who is very dirty and poor looking. On the flip side of each card will be pictures of children who look neat and tidy and nice, and on the flip side of the other card will be children who look poor and needy.

Teacher says: Let’s see if you can tell what a person is like, just from a picture.

(Show them the picture of the rich man) What can you tell me about this man?

(Show them the picture of the poor man) What can you tell me about this man?

Who is better?

Conclusion: Jesus says that being rich does not make you better than anyone else.  Being poor does not make you worse than anyone else. Jesus loves this man, and Jesus loves this man the same. He is interested in this man, and He is interested in this man. Jesus says that if we are interested in the things that he is interested in. Often times though, people just want to be friends with people like this…(show the front side of the card) and this…(and now the backside that shows neat and tidy children) because people like this are clean.  But Jesus says if we want to be loving like he is loving, we will also be interested in helping people who are poor and sad and alone. People like this (show the front side) and like this (show the backside that shows pictures of poor children).

If we want to be like Jesus, and do the things he asks us to do, we will care for people who are poor and need help.

3.         Bible Story

Jesus says that when we help someone who is in need it is like we are helping him.  Let me read those verses to you from the Bible: (this page will be in the Bible for you to read, I have paraphrased it for the little ones)

One day, all of us will stand before Jesus and all of his angels. Jesus will be sitting on a throne. Everyone from every country will stand before Jesus the King and He will sort people out, those who loved him and obeyed him to the right and those who chose not to love him and not to obey him to his left. Then Jesus will say to those on his right, ‘Come into heaven, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what’s coming to you in this kingdom. It’s been ready for you since the world began. And here’s why:

I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.’

Then those people on his right are going to say, ‘Jesus, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then Jesus the King will say, ‘I’m telling the truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone poor and needy, overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’

Teacher says: That’s an interesting verse. Jesus is saying if we do something kind for someone in need, that is the same as if we did it for him.  Let’s try this.

4.         Retelling: Bible Story

Have cutouts of the following people with the face of Jesus, make another face to cover the face of Jesus. Stick these figures to the wall, with the faces covering Jesus face so that their face can be flipped up to reveal Jesus’ face.

Faces PDF: Faces

Figures: Figures Page 1 and Figures Page 2 (you can enlarge all of these to put on the wall, 11 x 17 works good)

Person 1: Someone who is hungry

Person 2: Someone who is thirsty

Person 3: Someone who is homeless

Person 4: Someone who looks cold

Person 5: Someone who is sick

Person 6. Someone who is in prison

You will also need cutouts of food, drink, a house, clothing, get-well cards, cards that say “I am praying for you”, a cutout of a bible, card that says “you are not alone” and “you matter” – these things can be stuck to the hands or on the same sheet as the appropriate person.

Re-tell the story as follows

So Jesus says that if we help people who are in need, it is like helping him.

So if we come to someone like this (come to person 1). This person is very hungry. We can ignore him. But Jesus says that we show our love for him when we care about the things he cares about. He cares that this person is hungry. So when we give him food (have a few of the children put food in his hand) it is like we are giving the rood to Jesus (flip up the face of the man so they can see Jesus’ face)

Say the same sort of thing for each person below, adding the following props to the pictures with explanations of how these things show kindness…

  • I was thirsty and you gave me a drink (stick ons: drinks)
  • I was homeless and you gave me a room, (stick on: a house)
  • I was shivering and you gave me clothes (stick on: more clothes)
  • I was sick and you stopped to visit (stick on get-well cards and I am praying for you cards)
  • I was in prison and you came to me.’ (stick on a bible and also “you are not alone” and “you matter” cards)

Teacher says: Jesus says, ‘I’m telling the truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone poor and needy, overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’

5.         Take Home Paper

Hand out the take home papers which show the same scene as the one we just walked through (Activity 4). Have the kids tape on appropriate faces onto their sheet…and then draw in things that would be appropriate to help them.

Put their name on the paper and then put their paper on the counter by the sign in clip-board.

6.         Bible verse for this month

The Bible says that you as children should bring your parents joy!  We want to listen to the Bible’s instructions! Let’s see if you can remember the verse we learned last week.

Verse Hop.

I will have 2 sets of lines with the words to the verse, the kids start on the first line and see if they can hop on each line and say the words out loud. If they miss the words they need to go to the back of the line and start again.

Psalm 119:33: “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your instructions and I will keep them!”

TO DO THIS OUTDOORS: Stick flags into the ground (I will have the words on pointy tall toothpicks) and then have them move from one flag to the next if they can remember the words.

7.         Prayer and Free-Time

Take the time to pray with the children and over them.

If the weather is nice, let them enjoy the yard (please make sure you have someone supervising) but make sure they clean up before they leave the yard. If children are inside as well you will need someone inside and outside.

Clean Up!

Since our building is used for many different things, we need to make sure we clean up after ourselves. You can definitely have the kids help you do this near the end of the morning!!

  • Please use the BAG provided to put all the left-over items into it, and then you can leave your bag in the classroom.
  • Please pick up all the garbage and put it in the trash
  • If there are chairs or stools, please fold or stack them and put them away
  • Please turn the heat down (applicable for youth room and Gazebo) to 10 degrees
  • Please make sure any TVs/DVDs/Projectors are powered off
  • Please make sure all toys are put away

Thank you so very much!

John 20 (Doubting Thomas)

Jesus listens to my questions

Prepared by: Teresa Klassen

Ten Little Ideas of things to do

  • In any order – just pick which things seem to work on Sunday.
    You may do just a couple of things, or maybe you will do them all!

1.            Free time

2.            DVD of Jesus and Thomas

Play the DVD about “Doubting Thomas” – I used this one and added the actual voices to the DVD. I can’t publish that because it isn’t original to me; so you will have to come up with your own creative solution. Here is the video if you would like to show it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhj8cnk1_OM&feature=related


3.            Story Time (with flashcards) (I can’t post the images since they are not original to us, but if you google “Thomas” or “Thomas coloring page” you will find some usable images)

Jesus died on the cross. That was sad.

Jesus came alive again! That was very happy.

Thomas was Jesus’ friend.

He heard that Jesus was alive, but hadn’t seen him yet.

He had a question – was Jesus really alive?

Jesus came to Thomas and now Thomas could see Him.

Jesus said, believe in me!

4.            I can ask Jesus questions!

Teacher: we will have simple flashcards showing a child asking a question and then another one with an answer…the activity goes as follows

Teacher says: we can ask Jesus questions

Q:            “Jesus, who made the earth?”

A:            “God made the earth and everything on it.”

Q:            “Jesus, who made me?”

A:            “God made you and loves you very, very much”

Q:            “Jesus, are you always with me?”

A:            “Yes, I am always with you. No matter where you are.”

Q:            “Are you with me when I sleep?”

A:            “Yes, I am with you when you sleep”

Q:            “Are you with me in the car?”

A:            “Yes, I am with you in the car”

Q:            “Do you still love me when I am naughty?”

A:            “Yes, I still love you and I will forgive you.”

Q:            “Jesus, where are you right now?”

A:            “I am with you?”

Q:            “Do you live in my heart?”

A:            “I will live in your heart if you ask me to”

“Jesus, thank you that you listen to my questions!”

5.            Simple craft

The same picture of the child in activity above (number 4) asks, “Does Jesus hear my questions”…this is glued on the outside of a door, and when you open the little door it says, “Yes He does!”

6.            Bible memory: We are memorizing Proverbs 3:5

  • Hold up one hand and say: “let’s pretend this is God’s hand”
  • Hold up your other hand and say: “and this is your hand”
  • Put your two hands together and say: “when I put my hand in God’s hand, that is trust

Now do the Bible verse with that action starting you off:

  • Trust (two hands together like a handshake)
  • In Jesus (point up)
  • With all (arms out wide)
  • Your heart (put your two hands over your heart)

7.            Snack

8.            Coloring Page of Jesus and Thomas

9.            Song (from a worship with actions cd)

10.            Blessing

Teachers, I am asking that at the end of every lesson you have all the children sit quietly while you pray over them.  You do not have to use these words below…but they are from the bible and you could certainly add them to whatever you pray. Let us not miss the opportunity to impart a spiritual blessing on each child.

“I pray this blessing over each one of you.

Each of you is precious in God’s sight.

God sees you every minute of every day and he loves you.

I pray that you will come to know and love Jesus with all your heart for all your days.

May the Lord bless you and protect you.

May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.

May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.

Amen.”
