Activity Array

Here you'll find an array of activities for elementary children that can be used in Children's Ministry, after-school programs, in the classroom and by homeschoolers.

Father Abraham

Leave a comment

There are so many lessons to learn from the many stories of Abraham! In a world of idolatry, he chose to worship God. When God said to go, He went. He walked by faith. He was hospitable to strangers who actually were angels. He cared for his nephew and rescued him. These are just a few. You can read about this great patriarch in Genesis 12-25.

Here are some PowerPoint presentations I used to present the stories to early elementary children on Zoom Sabbath School. We follow the GraceLink Primary Bible lessons.

Abraham walked by Faith

Along with the story from the Bible and in video, there are songs and fun activities like walking by faith and a special altar snack to remind us to worship God where ever we are.

Abraham Saved Lot and Paid Tithe from the spoils of war. The presentation is here.

Five kings could not win against 4 kings. But Abraham and his 3 allies along with our strong and faithful God did win! In this presentation we are reminded that God cares for us and we should care for one another. One way to show our gratitude to God is to give 10% of what we have to him. Abraham demonstrated this. We’ll make a bank for tithe and offerings. For the bank, print out the covers below.

Abraham pleads for Sodom

Abraham talked to God on behalf of the people in Sodom. God wants us to pray for others too. This presentation tells the story found in Genesis 18-19 of Abraham receiving 3 visitors. He shows hospitality and receives the promise again that he and Sarah will have a son next year. But there is bad news too. Lot and his family are saved, but Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed. During the presentation the children have an opportunity to form key items with play dough to illustrate the story. They also can eat ‘with the 3 visitors’ for snack time. Serve bread and milk or cottage cheese.

I enjoy planning lessons, directing VBS and child care programs. Children's ministry is my passion. God Almighty is my strength and inspiration. For fun I choose hiking, canoeing, camping, cooking, and reading.
