This Weeks Topic

Jesus heals a man with leprosy

The stories for the next few weeks are about some of the amazing things that Jesus did. This week it’s about a man who had a skin disease that was very catching, so he had to keep away from everybody else. He couldn’t even live in a town or village with others. Watch the video to see what happened when he asked Jesus for help.

Now choose something to do.

Can you think of some things that Jesus can do that nobody else can?

  • Jesus healed the man because He cared about him. Jesus cares about us too.

Ask a grown up to help you copy out this verse from the Bible. It tells us how Jesus (God) wants us to tell him all about the things that worry us, because He cares about us so much.

Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you.   1 Peter 5 v7

(International Children’s Bible)

  • Tell Jesus about anything that is worrying you. Then say thank you to him because he loves you and cares for you so much. Jesus will always listen and help you.

God made the World – Part 2

Last week we saw how God made the whole universe and everything in it, but there were some things missing!

Can you remember some of the things God made on the first five days?

Well, here we are on day number 6. Watch the video to see what happened next.

Now choose something to do.

  • See what pictures of animals and people you can find in some old magazines. Cut some out and stick them onto a piece of paper to make a collage. Don’t forget to ask a grown up before you start cutting up a magazine! If you don’t have any pictures you could draw some instead.
  • Draw or paint a picture of yourself and maybe your family too. Say thank you to God for making you all so special.
  • What did God do on the 7th day? Can you draw a picture of that?

God made the world very special and very beautiful and he put people in charge of it. Sometimes we don’t look after it very well. Make up a prayer to say thank you to God for our world and ask him to help us to look after it better.

God made the World (part 1)

Hello again!

I hope you all had a good time during August, even if it has been a bit different to normal. Now we’re all getting ready to be back at school and I expect lots of us feel a bit strange. It’s been a long time since we were with all our friends at school. The Bible tells us how much God loves us and how he wants us to tell him about anything and everything. Let’s start this week with a prayer.

Dear Father God, You love us all so much and you know everything about us. Thank you that you have been with us all through this time when things have seemed strange and when we haven’t been able to do all the things we have wanted to. We thank you too that you are with us as things start to feel a little bit more normal. Thank you that we can go back to school. Thank you for our teachers and all the other people there who look after us. We especially thank you that we will see our friends, we have missed them a lot. Please help us to remember that wherever we are, you love us and care for us. Amen

This week’s story is right at the very beginning of the Bible. It’s about how God made the world. We’re looking at part of the story this week and the rest next week, so you won’t hear about everything today!

Watch the video to see the first part of what God did.

Now choose an activity.

  • How many things can you find that were mentioned in the video today? Have a look around your house and in your garden. You might find the actual thing (for example, a flower or leaf) or a toy or a picture of something from the story. Don’t forget, there are some things that you’ll have to wait until next week to find!
  • Print out this sheet.  Genesis 1 verse 1
