Learning About the Bible

The past two Sunday evenings I got to talk to children about the Bible.
With the younger group, we call it Adventuring through the Bible and wear our adventure hats. We start by talking about four things that make the Bible special.

The phone stands for: God told men what to write.

We talk about how God used ordinary men to write the Bible--fishermen, a tax collector, a cup bearer, prophets, shepherds, kings, a doctor and prophets (s0me of those were shepherds too).

Then we load the animals on the ark.

And we marched around the walls of Jericho.

Did two crafts

This is the older group. We do some of the same things, but we don't do Noah or Joshua.

The older kids had to move the frogs out of Egypt using a spoon held in their mouths.

It's not as easy as it looks!

And they had a race to see who could put the books of the Bible together first.
They also learned the twelve C's of the Bible-they take you from Genesis to Revelation. And we did a couple of crafts.

My best helper!

If you are a girl age 5-13 and you want to learn more about the Bible, join our fall challenge. Just go back and read the past few posts to find out what we're doing.
