Form pairs. Give each pair a book. Have one partner walk across
the room and back with a book balanced on his or her head. Have the
other partner walk along and encourage the balancing partner. Then
have the children change roles.

Afterward ask: How did it feel to have someone
there all the time encouraging you? Can you think of what it might
feel like to not have someone there to encourage you?

Read aloud Acts 11:22-24.

Ask: How does your father or another male
family member encourage you? How does one of the men here at church
encourage you? How can we encourage our fathers?
