Our next two lessons will be on conversions while Paul was on his 2nd trip. He met the Philippian Jailer while he was imprisoned in Philippi and then met Lydia in the same city. I want to emphasize the attitude Paul and Silas had while in prison and the fact that God took care of them and saw to it they were no longer in prison.
My lesson plan is:
Sing: Jesus Loves Me and the The B-I-B-L-E with sign language. Also sing My God Is So Big and God Made The Round Round Sun.
Magnetic Puzzle -- Paul and Silas in Prison
Sing: Saul/Paul. I haven't gotten this song online yet.
Review the past 3 lessons with the popup book. The third page reviews Paul healing the lame man from Lystra.
Paul Flip Chart
Attendance chart: Each child will add another scroll to their picture of Paul.
Let the children pretend "baptizing" the plastic man (I think he's technically Moses). There is a plastic shoe box sized container filled with water that we use for this.
Sing songs: The Bright Red Crab and Bumbling Bumble Bee or others of their choosing. We've added Glenda Schales' Peter song to our list of favorites.
Review previous lessons with the Song Timeline.
End class with a prayer. Let each child that wants to say a prayer
