BEST FOR: GRADES 5 AND 6
ACTIVITY LEVEL: LOW
Have children sit in a circle of chairs. In the middle of the
circle, set items such as a pencil, sheet of paper, string, roll of
tape, empty cup, towel, glass of water and piece of candy. You'll
need one item for each child in the circle.
One at a time, have children each pick one item and use it in some
way to serve someone else in the circle. Kids must pick an item
that hasn't been used. Make sure everyone is served once.
Afterward, read aloud John 13:3-5, 12-17. Ask: How did you feel as you served
other people? How did it feel to be served? Why did Jesus serve the
disciples? How can we serve other people this week?
