The Church -- God's Plan of Salvation

This morning and Wed PM we will be talking about the Plan of salvation. The children are already somwhat familiar with the lesson because our VBS was based on it this year. We've also been talking about some conversions while we studied Peter and Paul.

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 -- Heaven

Sing: God's Wonderful Plan

God's Great Plan Flip Chart -- This is a short flip chart that gives a brief overview of God's plan:

Introduce the new cards for the Salvation pocket. Talk about the pictures on each one. There is a picture of a Bible on the Hearing card, a cross on the believing card, a sad face on the repent card, a man talking on the confess card and a man being baptized on the baptism card.

Sing: Salvation

During our VBS, one of the men here built a really nice wooden church building. We'll be using it this month. Each child will have a small car that they can drive up to the church building. We'll talk about going to worship God with our families and all it takes to get ready.

Attendance chart: Our attendance chart this month is a picture of a church building. Each class, the children will get to add a different person to the front of the building. We'll talk about how their family came to the church building to worship God. These pictures came from Palma Smiley's To Toddlers With Love Families books.

Worshiping God. The children were able to try the unleavened bread we use during the Lord's supper. They weren't too impressed. They may not even want to try again today.

End class with a prayer.
Let each child that wants to say a prayer
