Nursery Lesson Plan 29: Peope Thank God at Church - 4th May 2014

Lesson Plan for 04 May (Lesson 29)
Concept Area:   Church
Theme: People thank God at church.
Bible verse: Psalms 136:1
Oh give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.
Bible Story: The widow’s gift 

Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4    

Activity 1: Learning about giving

Introduce the point behind tithing, offering and giving in church, and that all we have is not ours but God’s. God ask that we give some back to Him with a happy heart. Further help the children to understand the difference when we have much, compared to when we have little, by using tokens or money. Give a child many coins and another child two.  Have both of them put his/her offering in the box. Ask them to look at what is left in each pile. Then introduce the story of how a widow gave all she had while the rich man had much left.

Tell the story, invite the children to ask questions and talk about it. Tell the story from the book of Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4.
Activity 3: Making collages

Provide the children with the pictures from the Bible story of ‘The Widow’s Gift’ about how she gave all that she had – 2 coins to God. God has provided everything we have. We thank God for all of His gifts. Like the widow, we can also thank God with a happy heart and trust that He will always take care of us. Ask the children to reproduce the story in sequence. While the children carrying out the activity, reinforce the bible stories with the children that they have just listened.
Activity 4: Colouring

Colouring sheet – The widow’s gift. Repeat the Bible story during this activity.

Activity 5: Word puzzle (for older children)

Extra activity for older children, searching words from the Bible story in a alphabet-letters-maze.

Activity 6: Mother’s Day activity

To show our appreciation and remembering our mothers for loving us, guide the children to create simple flowers with plastic cups, straws and coloured paper. 
Backup Activity 1: Memory verse

In small groups, encourage the children to try to re-arrange words from the memory verse in the right order. 

Psalms 136:1 Say thank you to God.
