You’ll need: a Bible

Say: As we start this new year, let’s think
about how old things can become new.

Form two teams. Have teams race each other to shout out new uses
for each of these objects: old shoelace, empty yogurt container,
broken vase, old car tires, empty water bottle, incomplete deck of
cards, old magazines, broken door, broken crayons, and tops of
plastic bottles.

Read aloud 2 Corinthians 5:17-21. Say: Jesus gives each of us a
new purpose and changes us from something old into something new!
Search these Scriptures to see if you can find new things that
Jesus does in us. Look in verses 18, 20, and 21 to find a new thing
in each verse.

Allow time for teams to find the new things and then discuss
with the entire group. Kids may find many things, but help them
also see these: verse 18-task of reconciling, verse 20-Christ’s
ambassadors, and verse 21-made right with God.
