Choosing Matthias

We had another large class Wednesday night. I was prepared this time and things went much better. There are 2 sets of siblings that are visiting their respective grandparents. That's why all the visitors all of a sudden. I'd love to have that many all the time. It's fun when I'm ready for them.

I added 8 more activities to the stations today. There's a some more I need to do, but, we've at least got the absolute "have to haves" done.

My lesson plan:

Time at Stations:
Encourage the kids to start at the stations when they come to class. Let them spend 5 or 10 minutes at them after class starts.

Acts cards -- I think we'll just do this activity on Wednesday nights. I'm leaving it in the lesson plan so I won't forget to do it come Wednesday.

Today's lesson: Discuss the apostles and see how many of them can tell me who they are from memory. Review Judas and then go into finding a replacement for Judas.

Project Folders -- Do the second verse of The Unknown God together (copy in project folder).Read the entire passage together. After they've copied the 2nd verse, recite verses 1 and 2 together (from memory).

Recite -- Start looking at The Church -- It's Mission and Organization. We are memorizing Philippians 1:1 and Matthew 28:18-20.

Sing: Is It I? Also I Will Sing (another song I wrote -- I hope to have it online soon)
