Bible Craft: Falling for Jesus

As a technology teacher in a parochial school setting, I am always on the lookout for ways to incorporate faith into my lesson plans.

I was getting ready to introduce “Tagxedo” word clouds to my students for later use in the classroom, so we made a Falling for Jesus tree. The students created word clouds in the shape of a leaf. Each text included the students name, Jesus' name, and a number of words they associate with what Jesus has taught us; for example, sharing, love, hope, prayer. We did this with grades 2, 3, and 4, using grade level appropriate words – the 4th graders came up with “compassion” and “empathy”! After students printed their leaves . . .

We used the Parables of Jesus as a starting point for our neighborhood kids Bible study and adapted the lessons to suit our needs. The lessons provided fun and easy ways to teach the parables. ~ Michle

We have a very small church (28 to 30 people total on average) and it is hard to find programs to do for VBS. So when I went looking for something that I could do with a group of kids, the Prayer of Jesus stood out. There are six, two-hour lessons and we did a lesson a day. The book has game and craft ideas to go with each lesson. . . . I am already looking into buying more books from Sunday School Network. I feel that learning to pray together as a group, a family, we have grown even closer to God. ~ Thank you, April G.

[The teacher's newsletter]
is an awesome resource for anyone that works with kids! You never know what will come from it. I met a new friend in South Africa and the Lord is doing a great outreach there---so many children have been reached and so many teachers trained and given resources, and it started with this connection. ~ PTL for this site. Bev T.

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching
children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas.  Thank you so much!

Bible Game: You're Not Alone. . .
God Sees Everything

Blessed (or accepted by God) are those who mourn for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

Before the game, explain to the players that the blindfolded person represents all of us. We can’t always see God’s plan clearly for our lives. Your partner represents Jesus, who has promised never to leave us, who sees everything, and who comforts us along life’s journey.

Set Up: Establish an obstacle course with a start line. You will need a blindfold for each of the teams.

How To Play: Divide players into teams of two. One of the players from each team must put on the blindfold, while the other player guides him or her through the obstacle course without touching the player. The “seeing” player may only use his or her voice to guide the other player, using encouraging phrases such as, Follow me; Don’t give up; You can do it. When the teams reach the end of the course, players switch positions and head back to the start line, playing as before. When teams have completed the course, they must give each other a “high five,” pat one other on the back and say, “Well done!” When everyone has completed the course, players “high-five” and congratulate the other players as well. This is to remind them that at the end of life’s difficult journey, when events didn’t make sense, or we couldn’t see our way through, God knew the way! And if you’re “Accepted” by him, if you’re blessed by God, you will be comforted!

Bible Skit: The Endless Oil

(Based on 2 Kings 4) 

Narrator, reads from the script, stands in back to the left. 
Widow, drape a cloth over her head and give her a small jar or pitcher (even a paper cup). She stands in the middle; Widow’s two Children, they stand close to their mother; 
Elisha, a prophet of God, give him a Bible to carry. He stands to the right; 
Lender, a Loan Shark, give him/her a notebook and pen or a money bag. S/He starts on the left.

Other props
Five jars or cups (more if available). The children will bring these to their mother. Set them to the left.

Narrator: There once was a woman whose husband was a prophet. He was a partner of the great prophet Elisha in the old days of Israel before Jesus was born. He was a good man, but times were hard for those who loved God and he had to borrow some money. He was working on paying it back when he died. So one day the Lender came to . . . get this Bible Skit.

I find these skits to be BEAUTIFUL! Thank you very much.
