Sermon Title: "Who Can You Believe?"

scripture Reading: Mark 13:1-8

FOLLOW THE LEADER: The children will follow a leader around an obstacle course. Encourage the children to use their imagination so that the followers will have to pay close attention and not get tricked.

SIMON SAYS: Let the children play a game of SIMON SAYS with the game starting out slowly but picking up speed as the game progresses. Let as many children as possible be SIMON as time allows.

FOLLOW FEET: The children trace around their shoe on a sheet of paper. Cut out several tracings and decorate their "feet" and then the teacher can have the children place their "FEET" along a designated path. All the children will then take turns to FOLLOW the FEET as quickly as possible around the room.

BIBLE VERSE FEET: Each child traces and cuts out a foot print and writes today's Bible verse or words from today's lesson on the footprint. Let children tape their footprints to a classroom door or wall to the form of a path.

MEMORY VERSE JIG SAW PUZZLE: The teacher will have A large picture of the Bible printed on heavy card stock and cut into pieces for the children to take turns putting a piece together until the Bible puzzle is complete. If the teacher chooses, a puzzle could be made for each child. (CLICK HERE for Template)

BIBLE SCAVENGER HUNT: Let children have a scavenger hunt with items on a list that the teacher will provide for each team. The BONUS points will be for the team/s that find a BIBLE and brings it back to the teacher in the least time! To make the game a little more meaningful, the teacher can have a certain Bible verse for the team to find and read to the class.

BIBLE SWORD DRILL: For older children, the teacher could have some Bible verses for a sword drill to see who can find the verses in the quickest time. Teacher should look for verses that have to do with today's lesson and with today's theme. For younger children, the teacher might have a story book Bible available for the children to find a certain Bible story and tell a little bit about that story.

THE B-I-B-L-E DECOUPAGE: The teacher can print off copies of words to the song "THE B-I-B-L-E" and glue them to a thin piece of wood. The children can then use decoupage material or spread white glue over the top which will dry shiny and then put an inexpensive hanger on the back to hang the BIBLE project.

SING A SONG: The B-I-B-L-E; I Believe the Promises of God

SHARE A SNACK: If the teacher wants to have fun with this snack time, the teacher could have 3 solid colored glasses upside down. With a child's eyes closed, the teacher could hide a snack under one of the glasses and move the glasses around and have child try to find the glass with the snack. This could be done for each child if time allowed. It would be fun for all the children to watch as each child find their snack!
