The Hall Of Faith
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.”
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
A blindfold for every two children in your class.
One “Hall of Faith” template for each child in the class, scissors,
crayons or markers, glue sticks, and construction paper.
Small prizes (pencils, erasers, etc.).
Walking by Faith
For this activity you will need a blindfold for every two children.
Have the children in your class split into pairs. Place a blindfold on
one child in each pair. Next, instruct the other child to be the eyes
and ears of the blindfolded child. Have them walk around the
room or even outside of the room (but not far) and then return. As
an option you can put obstacles in the room that the guide will
have to lead them through. Instruct the guide to give direction to
the blindfolded child on which way to walk or turn so they don’t
bump into things. Allow the children to do this activity and then
When all the children have had opportunity to be blindfolded have
them return to their seats. Ask them what it was like to be the
blindfolded person. Did they have to trust their guide to keep
them from bumping into things? Were they able to walk by sight or
walk by faith? How is this like walking with the Lord? Explain that
we are going to be talking about faith in our lesson today and be
meeting some really cool people who lived their lives by faith.
Learning about the faith of others helps us to trust God.
The Bible has much to say about faith. Every child of God
throughout history has had to have faith in Him. Hebrews 11 is a
very famous chapter in the Bible. Some even call it the hall of
faith. It tells of all of the people who, over many years and through
many situations, all put their trust in God. It is an encouragement
to us to put all of our trust in God. We first have faith when we
trust in Jesus and give Him our life. That is how we are saved.
