March 7, 2021: Remember and Celebrate

This week we’re reviewing what we’ve talked about for the past few weeks. If you missed any of those lessons, you can find them here: God is Redeemer, God is Worthy of Worship, God is the Lord (Part I) & (Part II), God Gives New Life.

Let’s Start

  • In Egypt, the Israelites had to work together to create bricks and build things for the Egyptians. Today, we’re going to work together to build some things too, but here’s the catch: you can only use your body – no other building materials!
  • Each time a letter, number, or shape pops up on the screen, you’ll have a few seconds to “build” it. You can use your arms or legs, or team up with a family member and build it together.

Let’s Review!

Use the following review game video to test how much you remember! Parents – you can pause the video on each question slide until your child(ren) have answered; the correct answer will pop up on the screen after a few seconds!

Let’s Talk!

  • Do you know what Deliverer means? Rescuer
  • How did God deliver His people in the Old Testament? He set them free from slavery in Egypt.
  • How did God deliver His people in the New Testament? Jesus came to pay the price for our sin and set US free.
  • Every time the Bible talks about God as deliverer, it says that he “IS” our deliverer, not he “WAS” our deliverer. He’s STILL our rescuer and he still moves in a mighty way today!
  • Can you think of a time that you’ve seen God’s power in your life?? Parents, lead this with a story of what you’ve seen God do in your life! Think of times that God has protected you, rescued you, seen you through a tough time, healed you, or helped you to overcome something you were struggling with. If something comes up where they need God’s deliverance – take some time to pray with them and believe for God to move in that situation!

Let’s Celebrate!  

  • Give each child a piece of paper and allow some time for them to write or draw a picture of something they’ve seen God do. (Parents, write your story too!)
  • If you want, you can play some quiet music while everyone works on their papers!
  • When everyone is done, talk about what you wrote/drew! You could also have each person place their story on a wall with the label “God is Deliverer” to remind you of His power all week.
  • Then, celebrate! Enjoy a special snack or treat together, blow up some balloons, have a dance party, or find your family’s favorite way to remember and celebrate what God has done in your lives!

Let’s Pray!

God, Thank you for being our deliverer! Thank you that YOU have the power to set us free from sin, from bad attitudes, from sickness. . .and give us NEW life in you. Thank you for moving in our lives in a MIGHTY way!

Let’s Bless!

Today, have each child speak this blessing (from Psalm 67:1):

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us.
