Text: Psalm 91
Preparation: You'll need scrap paper and a
The Message: (Distribute 20 sheets of scrap
paper and have kids wad the paper as you talk.) It's almost time
for Halloween, and for some people Halloween is a spooky time. What
kinds of things do people fear at Halloween?
The Bible tells us that we have nothing to fear at Halloween.
(Read Psalm 91:1-10.)
Let's act out these verses. (Choose a child to be "It." Have
half the children use their bodies to make a shelter to protect It.
Have the other half try to hit It with the paper wads. After two
minutes of play, stop the action.)
How did "It" feel in the shelter? How easy or difficult was your
job of protecting It? How did your shelter compare with God's
shelter that Psalm 91 tells us about?
You are God's precious treasure. He is greater than any evil on
this Earth. God will protect you. Listen to what God says about
you. (Read Psalm 91:14-16, personalizing the Scripture by
using the pronoun "you.")
Close in prayer, thanking God for his love and protection at
Halloween and all times.
