2 or 3 are gathered (Matthew 18) | Craft 2

 

When 2 or 3 are gathered Jesus is with them – This craft takes that literally, piecing Jesus together as the different people join. There is nothing moving in this craft and it’s deceptively simple. I’ve included a partially coloured template so you can colour just the three who gather and not Jesus. 2 or 3 are gathered (Matthew 18) | Craft 2

2 or 3 are gathered (Matthew 18) | Craft 1

 

This craft is based on Matthew 18 verse 20 where Jesus speaks about where 2 or 3 are gathered in his name – though it plays with the wording a little. This is a perfect craft for a younger group as it’s so simple. It’s recommended to print this one in colour and allow the child to customise the final craft by adding colour to the words and details to the background. 2 or 3 are gathered (Matthew 18) | Craft 1

Today’s hero is Justus because he shows us the gift of praying together

Essential Teachers notes:
There are two quite distinct teachings in this short 6 verse section from Matthew 18 – the teaching on resolving arguments and the teaching on corporate prayer. I’ve tried to capture both by weaving a slightly fictional story alongside about one of the crowd of extra’s. We know from Acts 2 that many men were with Jesus throughout his time but not chosen to be one of his disciples, I’ve chosen a name from there ‘Justus’ to be our hero. Which of the two elements you choose to stress is entirely up to you but for the supporting material I’ve chosen the latter message about corporate gathering as I write this while the world is struggling with a pandemic and the idea that Jesus is just as present in the living room as the sanctuary is key.

Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favorite bible translation or story book.
