Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Green Unit C4
Lesson 1: Jesus Sends Out His Disciples (Matthew 28:16 - 20)
Perform a "Class Commission" - Materials Needed:
- materials vary depending on your chosen commission and local needs
Gather the class into a circle and explain that you are giving them a class commission. A "commission" is a special job. As a group, they are going to share God's love with their church by doing a simple service project. Examples might include: replenishing children's worship bags with paper and crayons, picking up and recycling old bulletins, sharpening pencils in the pews, picking up and recycling old bulletins, stacking hymnals, helping out in the nursery, pulling weeds, or making cards for home bound people. Go and complete the project together.
Activity: Flag Flashcards
Before class, print out or copy the flags of 10 different nations. Cut out each flag, creating small flashcards. In pencil, write the corresponding country's name on the back of each card. List the countries on the board, as well. Shuffle the cards, and invite kids to guess which flag matches which nation. Explain that whether we know the name of every country in the world or not, God does. And he wants every nation to know about his love for them.
