The Burning Bush
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow
Me.” JOHN 10:27
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
A string and the divided memory verse written on 3x 5 cards.
Markers or crayons, scissors, tongue depressors, tape and as many
burning bush activity sheets as the number of children in your
Cupcakes in green paper with dyed green frosting and yellow,
orange and red sprinkles.
Un-spin the Web
You will need string and the memory verse written one word at a
time on 3x5 cards.
Split your class into pairs. Have your teams untangle the puzzled
memory verse by working their way through the maze of a web of
string. Let your starting place be your ending place and take a long
string and wind it all around the room.
Shuffle the 3 x 5 cards and tape them at intervals along the string.
Have the pairs work together by having one person find the words
and the other write down the words found by their partner. Have
each team work their way through the web until they have
gathered all the words or phrases (place pairs at different intervals
on the web so they don’t “bottle-neck”).
The first team to unscramble the verse correctly is the winner.
In today’s lesson we are going to learn the story of Moses and the
burning bush. This was a very important time in Moses’ life. It is
when God spoke to Him and shared with him the special plans that
He had for Moses’ life. God wanted Moses to be the one to lead His
people out of Egypt, but as we will see it was a pretty scary thing for
Moses to think about.
Just like Moses, God has a plan and a call for our lives. Certainly He
wants us first of all to be saved and then to grow in our
relationship with Him; but as we grow in Him, we will find that He
wants to use our lives for His purposes. Sometimes it can be kind
of scary for us to step out into those areas in which God wants to
use us. But as Moses learned, God will always provide everything
we need to help us to do what He has called us to
