Wanting a King (1 Samuel 8) | Story

Essential Teachers notes:
It’s the churches birthday! It can be tempting to rush to the good bit of this story where there are tongues of fire and the gift of tongues, but we must start with Jesus’s words to his disciples otherwise the events would have made no sense to the believers.
Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favourite bible translation or story book. This version is supplied for inspiration, feel free to omit or embellish to give it your personal voice.

There are two King Saul stories onsite, this one focuses on him becoming king. The other one looks at the significance of his robe. They overlap so choose the one that suits your group best.

Nicodemus (John 3) | Craft 2

 

This craft is another alternative to the traditional butterfly idea that often accompanies this lesson. It looks at the life of Nicodemus, as displayed in John’s Gospel. The composition is really simple for this craft, with the hardest element being cutting the shapes – if you have younger children you may want to pre-cut in part.

This style craft is also avalible for the story of the woman at the well and the events of Easter.

Pentecost (Acts 2) | Craft 1

 

These little Pentecost spinner crafts are super fun to play with, they require no glue and spin in a beautiful whirl of flames from whatever height. It’s also one of those things that once you’ve made them once it’s super quick and easy to make again and again! Pentecost (Acts 2) | Craft 1

Pentecost (Acts 2) Games

 

Pentecost is a day of movement, the elements of the story are dynamic, rushing wind, flickering flames, counting days and speaking tongues. These games tie into some of those ideas and are suitable for a variety of set-ups and groups.
