Watch: SJ Kids Sunday School Hour!

Activity: Map of Your Neighborhood

What you need
Paper, Markers

What you do
Have the kids draw their house in the center of the paper. Have them draw a map on
the paper of what their neighbors houses look like. Then take turns sharing with each other their drawings and even who lives in the various houses.

What you say
Everyone has such different neighborhoods! Jesus sends us into our neighborhood to share Jesus and be a light. I want to see what our neighbors look like. Jesus has put us in that specific neighborhood to be a light! That is no accident! He has a plan for us here!

Great Commission (Play Red Light and Red Light)
What you need
Nothing

What you do
One person plays the “stop light” and the rest try to touch him/her. At the start, the
children form a line about 10 feet away from the stoplight. The stop light faces away from
the line of kids and says “green light”. At this point the kids are allowed to move towards
the stoplight. At any point, the stoplight may say “red light!” and turn around . If any of the
kids are caught moving after this has occurred, they are out. Play resumes when the stop light turns back around and says “green light”. The stop light wins if all the kids are out before anyone is able to touch him/her. Otherwise, the first player to touch the stoplight wins the game and earns the right to be “stoplight” for the next game.

What you say
As we have learned in the Red Letter Challenge, there are times to go, and there are times
to stop! It takes a listening ear to know when you have to go and

PRAYER

Dear Lord,
We want to know exactly where you want us to go. Sometimes it feels like we are stuck doing what we are told to do and we don’t know how we can go. But Jesus, we know that your command to go is for everyone of every age. It’s for kids as well as grownups. You call us to go, but you also promise that you will always be with us no matter what. We are so thankful for you and ask you to give us strength and help us keep learning about you and what it means to follow you and GO! Amen

Dear Parents:

As we wrap up this Red Letter Challenge, we don’t end with an easy task! Going is sometimes hard for kids to understand because they are always told “go brush your teeth”, “go clean your room”, “go to school”. Going to kids just feels like a command to obey, rather than an invitation to adventure! We want to instill in our children the understanding that GOING with Jesus is not a task to be completed, but an adventure to embark on! It should be
thrilling and intriguing.
