Theme: The church Text: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 You’ll Need: cookie dough in a bowl a cup of flour an egg a large spoon a plastic spoon for each child Children’s Message and Object Lesson: Mix It Up Say: Who’d like to eat these ingredients? Hold up the flour and egg. Ask: What other ingredients do these ingredients need to make them taste better? Kids may answer chocolate chips, sugar, or vanilla. How can these ingredients become something that tastes better? Say: These ingredients need to be mixed up with other ingredients to taste better. Read the scripture. Say: Turn to a partner and tell your partner one good ingredient he or she has that makes our church “taste better,” such as a sweet smile or a great voice. Give kids one minute. Ask: What would happen if we left out an ingredient from our recipe? What would happen if one of us wasn’t mixed into our church? As you give each child a spoonful of cookie dough, say things such as: You’re an important ingredient in our church. Our church is a better place because you’re mixed into it. Pray: Father, thank you for all the unique and wonderful children who make a great recipe for our church. Eric Wooding Michigan City, Indiana Looking for more object lessons?
