Bible Activity: Mission Impossible-Form two teams.
Put stronger children on one team. Then bring out a long rope. Have
teams compete in a Tug of War.
Afterward, *ask: How did you feel during this game? Was it
fair or unfair? Explain.
Paraphrase the story from 1 Samuel 17.
*Ask: How do you think David felt when he faced the
giant? Was this contest fair or unfair? Explain. How did God help
David? What are some giants in your life you must overcome? How can
God help you?
Craft: Giant Steps-Using butcher paper, have kids
each make a giant footprint and write their name on it. In the
center of their footprint, have them each write the biggest giant
they're facing. Then have kids write on each others' footprints
words of encouragement or drawings of how God can help them
overcome their giant. Encourage kids to hang these footprints in
their room at home.
Snack: You'll need: Pop rock candy or rock
Directions: Give kids the candy as a reminder of the rock
that David threw to kill Goliath. Close in prayer with children
taking turns to ask God to help him or her overcome a personal
giant or problem.
