Serve a breakfast before Sunday school to show children what
kind of breakfast the Israelites may have eaten after God led them
to the Promised Land. This multisensory experience is one that kids
will remember forever.

The more elaborate you make your environment the better. Set up
low tables so children can sit on the floor. (Plywood on bricks
will work fine.) Cover tables with cloths. Use large pottery jars
as centerpieces. Earthenware serving pieces and baskets also add to
the ambience.

Have one server for each table. Encourage your servers to dress
in costume and to explain each food’s biblical connection as they
serve it. Servers can connect the Israelites’ new found freedom to
our freedom in Christ.

Here’s a sample menu:
