Song: “I Need Thee Every Hour” (Hymns, no. 98)

Activity: Draw a picture of a boat on the waves. Then write or talk about ways you can follow Jesus Christ. How does He guide you in your life?

Heroes of Faith

For Hebrews 7–13

Story: The scriptures say that faith means believing in things you cannot see (see Hebrews 11:1). Hebrews 11 tells stories of many people who had faith. Having faith in Jesus Christ gives us peace and courage.

Song: “Faith” (Children’s Songbook, 96–97)

Activity: Take turns choosing a scripture hero from Hebrews 11. Everyone else asks questions to guess the hero. How can you have faith like the people in the scriptures?

Service Shuffle

Story: The Apostle James taught that we should help those in need (see James 1:27). Who needs your help?

Song: “When We’re Helping” (Children’s Songbook, 198)

Activity: Have a race! Set a start and finish line. Then move to the finish line by sliding your feet forward without lifting them. The winner of the race chooses a simple act of service for the group to do, like sending a kind message to someone or visiting someone who is lonely.

Help for Our Ancestors

For 1 and 2 Peter
