Hi Reign Forest Friends,
For the month of March, we are learning all about COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
In week three, we head to a story found in Luke 5:17- 26. We discover a paralyzed man, someone who cannot walk, who just happened to have some excellent friends. When they heard that Jesus was in town, they tried everything to get their friend to Jesus. When they arrived, the place was packed. Instead of giving up, the friends went to the roof and tore a hole big enough to drop their friend down right in front of Jesus. Jesus did something unbelievable because of their faith and cooperation.
We did two cooperative games, including an Iceberg game and a Hula hoop challenge. See the links below for a description.
We ended our time with a few children using simple props to reenact the Bible story above.
Bottom Line: Work together to help someone in need. When we see others with needs that seem huge and overwhelming, we often think they’re too big for us to help and end up doing nothing. However, if we cooperate with others to meet those needs, we have a better chance of making a difference in their life and pointing them to God.
Bible Verse #19: “Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!” (Romans 12:16, NLT).
Have a great week!
