Jesus Heals

Widow of Nain, “Stop Crying.” Young man, “Get up” — Luke 7

This Bible Story slide show tells the story of how Jesus brought the Widow of Nain’s son back to life. You can find it in Luke 7:11-17. It includes an a challenge to determine if a person is happy or sad by looking at their eyes; a craft for Thanksgiving, thanking God for life and His many blessings; along with songs and praise.

Go He is Well — Centurion’s Servant (Luke 7) and Official’s Son (John 4)

In this presentation we look at many examples of faith. We read and act out two stories where Jesus just spoke the word and a man believed, and the sick person was healed. The nature nugget is about how the plover bird ‘has faith’ that the crocodile won’t eat him! We can trust God. He loves and cares for us. He is strong and generous. Even though we might not see it, we can have faith in Him and his promises. We also experience what faith feels like by being blindfolded and following directions. This is a full lesson.

Jesus Heals even on the Sabbath — John 5

In John 5:1-15, Jesus takes time to visit where the disabled hang out. He offers healing. Jesus still offers to heal us physically, emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually. We take time to ponder what it would be like to be a paralytic and play I Spy. We learn about muscles and bones. We have an opportunity to accept God’s healing.

God made the Sabbath for us; Jesus restores health — Mark 2, 3, 13

When God finished creating the earth, He rested and blessed the 7th day and made the Sabbath Holy. From Sinai, He reminded His people that the Sabbath is holy and to do no work. The pharisees made many laws about the Sabbath. Jesus made it clear that the Sabbath was made for us, that we should do good on the Sabbath, and that God wants us to be healed and rejuvenated on this special day. In this presentation, Jesus and his disciples eat grain fresh off the stalk, Jesus heals a man with a withered hand and a woman who is stooped over. We have an opportunity to make blessing bags. There also is a Sabbath Activity ‘fortune teller’.

Jesus Heals Blind Man — John 9

This PowerPoint presentation is about when Jesus healed a blind man. What is it like to be blind? Let’s experience a blindfold activity to ‘see’ what its like. What animals are blind? Find out in the nature nugget. The craft is to decorate an eye mask. Jesus healed this blind man, but what is most important is that we are not spiritually blind. Do we know God and believe in Jesus? Do we see those in need and love them as God does? If so, we truly can see! Then sing to celebrate God’s power and our sight.

Jairus’ daughter and woman – Mark 6

Jesus gives life and healing. Though we may die …. just wait … Jesus is coming! We will arise and rise to meet him. Praise God! This presentation celebrates God’s healing power and resurrection morning. The nature nugget is the opossum. The message is reiterated through songs, retelling the story, and a tic-tac-toe game.

The Leper who returned and said Thank you! — Luke 17:11-19

Praise God for His many blessings, for life and health, and for His love for each one of us! We’ll take the opportunity to thank God during this lesson in song, prayer, discussion, and by making cards to give to those who cooperate with God in helping us get well when we are sick.

Jesus Provides

Jesus Feeds 5000 — Luke 9

The real story starts with the disciples returning from going out to tell the good news and doing miracles as they were commissioned and empowered by Jesus to do. With God, all things are possible! Rather than resting, Jesus talks to the large crowd about the kingdom of heaven and heals them. We look at the parable of the mustard seed and yeast and see how little things grow and provide for many. Then Jesus feeds the 5000! Indeed little becomes much and many are blessed! With God, all things are possible!
