For Kids: Pentecost 9 (Lectionary 19) | Year C
Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Today we are learning about people of faith!
Lesson: How did Bible Heros Pray?
Bible Story Video: People of Faith
Ask: Can anyone tell me what "Faith" means? ... (trusting in God and following His way)
Who is your favorite Bible character who showed that they had faith (trusted) in God?
How do these people show that they really trusted God? ... (they showed it by their actions)
Say: The stories we hear in the Bible of people who were faithful to God encourage us to do the same! Even though things weren't always easy for them (in fact, sometimes life was super hard for them), they trusted God and followed His way! Let's take a moment and think of how we can encourage each other to trust in God... (maybe share stories when God does something good in our life, or encourage one another by doing good things for other people...etc.)
Song for Kids: I'm Trusting You
Activity Sheets or Play
After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play out a story that fits with the lesson).
End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.
