I hope each of you had a wonderful Memorial Day—getting some time to enjoy the sunshine, and maybe some friends and family. There is light at the end of this quarantine tunnel!
Today’s lesson is about change. We are all impacted by change, but we all respond differently. How about you? How about your kids? We’ve all been through a lot of changes over the past couple of months. Has God used any of these changes to make you more like Him?
This season of change has forced me to depend on God for many things—for companionship, direction, technology assistance, energy, and toilet paper! In each situation, God was faithful, giving me just what He needed me to have. God can use a quarantine to change us into the person He wants us to be.
Our Lesson this Week: God’s Son, Jesus, Changes Everything—Saul’s Conversion
This week we’ll meet a man named Saul. Saul thought he was serving God, but really he was working against God. God had big plans for Saul, but first, He had to change his heart!
Check out my video for the lesson, the story video, and/or use the lesson plan below to share the Big God Story with your kids this week. Have even more fun and use the story and pictures attached for your kids to tell the story! Feel free to pick and choose the other activities to help your kids learn that Jesus Changes Everything.
