Shadrach.Meshach. and Abendigo.
Here was my basic outline for class:
- Play Hershy Kiss Impossible Game
- Act out Bible story
- Do Bible drills
- Salt & Pepper Object lesson
- Pray & Clean Up
We tried to eat wrapped hershey kisses without using our hands! Impossible! (Almost....) I got this devotional from this book,
Which has quite a few nice object lessons for kids. We talked about how we can be courageous because God can DO the Impossible!
A story of God doing the impossible in the Bible, is the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendigo. So we acted it out with a gold-cloth covered idol, a flaming couch, and a box of musical intstruments.
This is our flaming oranges, surrounding our peanut butter cookie faces and a shining hersey kiss angel!
After that, we practiced using our Bibles finding old and new testament, and our memory verse, Hebrews 13:6 "The Lord is my Helper, I will NOT be AFRAID!"
We also made a take-home paper, with the memory verse on it and glued on orange and red tissue paper flames to remind us of the story. We discussed things we might be afraid of, and that God is always near us no matter what!
Then we prayed and cleaned up. This week, we started a paper-chain-prayer-garland. We wrote our prayer requests on one link, and taped them together and hung them on our wall. We can add to them each week this way.
Next time, we will study the courage of Joshua!
