Sermon Title: "What Time Is It?"
Scripture Reading: Matthew 24:36-44
IT'S TIME GAME: Have children gather in a circle and one child will be "IT" (or the teacher to begin the game) and will say IT IS TIME to clap our hands, IT IS TIME to stomp our feet, IT IS TIME to sing a song, etc. Give all the children an opportunity to take a turn. Teacher will let the children know that our lesson today is about TIME.
Option 1: Children can pantomime something that they are doing to prepare for Jesus' coming - ideas listed in the BE READY BAG game above.
Option 2: As an idea for younger children, the teacher could give all the children an idea to "pretend they are doing" and enjoy watching them have fun pretending! Discussion about being ready for Jesus to come back!

This song is in the public domain and may be downloaded and reproduced for religious or educational use by churches, schools, home schoolers, and other non-profit organizations. Due to the very high range of the refrain, I only used the verse of this hymn. If you wish to use it all, it is found any many hymnals.
