we're going to learn that God gives us what we need. Let's pretend
it's very cold. (Take time to pretend.) All around this room are
hidden things that God has given us to get warm. But you have to

the clothes on. Then paraphrase the story from Genesis 22:1-19. Focus on how God gave Abraham
what he needed.
Craft: Little Lambs-Give children each one 2-inch section

that Abraham and Isaac may've eaten on their journey. Pretend that
the ricotta cheese is goat's cheese. Have kids gather around the
food and serve one another goat's cheese on crackers and dried
