Sermon Title: "Searching for Treasure"
Scripture Reading: Luke 12:32-34
TREASURE RUN: Send all the children to a designated outside area if available, to RUN for "treasures" of a various kinds such as RUN for nature items; RUN for toy treasures; RUN for Bible verses; RUN for food items.
TREASURE BOX: Use an empty tissue box, or any other box with a slit in the top, which can be decorated with construction paper and strips of paper across the top to represent a treasure box. A tracing of a key hole can also be cut out and glued to the front of the decorated box. Children should be given several neon colored index cards to write Bible verses as the "treasures" to be placed inside their treasure boxes. Encourage children each week following this lesson, to place another Bible verse TREASURE into their treasure boxes.
TREASURE PANTOMIME: Divide into teams and have the children work together to create a pantomime for the opposing team. Each pantomime should be a "treasure" of one way to HELP or ENCOURAGE someone else who is in need to build up "treasures" in HEAVEN! If a child cannot think of an idea for the pantomime, the teacher can have some ideas written on slips of paper for the children to choose from.
SING A SONG: TREASURES IN HEAVEN
SHARE A SNACK: Cupcakes with a "treasure" in the middle, or little tootsie rolls with a slip of paper wrapped around the middle of the tootsie roll with a "treasure" in heaven, or words from today's Bible verse.
