In our Midweek Children’s program, we are learning about how God’s plan is unstoppable. We used Acts 5:12-42.
After the lessons our teens come down and lead kids into a creative or physical activity. Here is this week’s activities.
Items Needed: Dominos
Do: Today we head that “nothing can stop God’s plan” and when I think of unstoppable, I think of falling dominos. I love seeing the huge setups of dominos and thinking how are these domino’s going to fall. And when the first domino goes, I hold my breath thinking “is it going to make it.” And when it does, it’s incredible.
Today, in our creative, we are going to work together and set up dominos and see if we can make something cool.
Ask: Did you know that your design was going to work? Why or Why Not?
Say: Trusting God at the moment can we hard, the apostles were in prison (which was bleak), but nothing can stop God’s plan. So even in the moment of hard times, we can trust that God’s plan can’t be stopped.
Needed Items: Bag of Balloons
Do: We are going to play a game in which you will work together to keep up balloons. We will start with one balloon, and periodically, we will add more balloons.
Ask: Was this game hard or easy for you? Why or Why not?
Say: Today we heard that, “nothing can stop God’s plan,” in the game you should be able to handle keeping the balloons in the air, but if we can’t adding more and more balloons, eventually it will be overwhelming. The apostles could have felt overwhelmed by being imprisoned for sharing the good news, but God’s plan cannot be stopped. We can trust that God’s plan cannot trust, so even when we are overwhelmed, we can trust in God.
