Introductory activity: Water game. 😀
Form 2 teams. Kids pass water above their heads with glasses. See which team fills first a large glass at the end of the line. Do several rounds.
Bible passage: Genesis 6-9
God saw that all the people were doing bad things so He will punish their sin with lots of water; but not everybody will die. God told a man named Noah that a flood was coming but he and his family will be saved if they trust His word and build an ark where get in, with many animals. God fulfilled His word and in a just way He punished those who did what is bad, and saved those who believed. The rainbow will be a reminder of what happened.
Application to our life: Like in Noah’s times, evil abounds in our world. God will punish sin, but He also gives us a way to be saved: believing in Jesus. He is the Son of God, who lived without sin, died in a cross for us and God resurrected him. Those who believe in Jesus receive eternal life and won’t suffer the punishment of this world, but they will live forever with God.
Didactic activity: Ark
The kids draw an ark and a rainbow. They practice reading and pronunciation of vowels. Kids receive pictures of 4 animals and their names in disorder. They complete the names of the animals writing the vowels. They paste the animals with their respectives names.
Introductory activity: Fruit salad 😛
The kids wash, cut and serve. Pray and eat.
Bible passage: Genesis 3 🙂
God made a garden full of delicious fruits that Adam and Eve can eat. There was only one tree of which they shouldn’t eat. Eve disobeyed God and, listening to the snake, she ate from the forbidden tree. Adam ate too. 😦
Question: God loved them no more because they disobeyed Him? Eve and Adam received the punishent of their act: they were expelled from the garden and brought pain to their lives; even so, God loves them; He gives them clothes and works to repair the relation between Him and the people.
Application to our life: We also have disobeyed God but He loves us and, even that sin has a punishment, God sent his Son Jesus who never did anything bad but died in a cross for us. God resurrected Jesus and by believing in Jesus and in what he did, we receive forgiveness of the bad things we have done, God makes us His sons and gives us eternal life (been forever with Him after this life). The Bible guides us to live and God helps us in what we do.
Craft: Card 😀
The kids receive letters in disorder. When a given letter is named, they color the square where that letter is, until color all the squares. They cut and paste the letters to make the sentence “God is love”. They paint a tree using cotton swabs.
“God is love.”
Bible passage: Genesis 1 🙂
In the beginning God was alone. He decided to create everything and with his word He made the light, the sky, the land, the trees and plants; the sun, the moon and the stars; the animals that fly, those who swim and those who goes through earth.
Question: Of all what God made, what do you like the most?
Of all what God made, what do you think He loves the must? The people! God made them very different to everything else. He talks to them. He gives them a beautiful world and the responsability of take care of it.
Application to our lifes: Your are very important for God! He loves you and has responsabilities for you.
