This summer, our children have been learning about the early church as we read through the book of Acts. August finds us following the missionary trips of the apostle Paul; we have had passports stamped in various ancient cities as we traced his route. You might see us with edible prison cells that recall Paul's imprisonments, making sailboats as we learn about his sea travels, even dyeing purple cloth to remember his friend Lydia.
Puppets and games, songs and snacks are all part of our Sunday morning lessons. Our students all have the opportunity to be puppeteers, dramatizing our Bible stories with great enthusiasm. Beanbags or a parachute may help us with games that review events in the Bible. Snacks often reflect something about the day's lesson as well.
Recently, our young learners surprised the adults during the worship service with a sweet gift as we shared one of our favorite songs, "Love is something if you give it away."
