'He Will Deliver You'

God is a deliverer. In scripture we find account after account of the Lord delivering those that follow him and put their trust in him. Our children need to know that they can be delivered, just as the examples in the scriptures teach. Our lesson bundle aims to do just that.

🎶 O P E N I N G S O N G : "I Am A Child Of God"

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N

You will need crayons and a blank sheet of paper for each child. Also, print out one copy of the “Who would you trust to take care of your pet fish?” activity page.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Pass out crayons and paper to each child. Set a timer for 2 minutes, and invite each child to draw themselves a new pet fish! Invite them to name their fish, and to write the name of their fish on

the paper.

Now invite children to take turns briefly introducing their pet fish to the group (show and tell).

Take out the “Who would you trust to take care of your pet fish?” printable. Invite children to imagine that their pet fish are real.

Say: “Your pet fish is very special to you and you love your fish very much. But you are leaving for a week to go on a vacation and you need someone to take care of your fish for you while you are away. Who would you trust to take care of your fish?”

Show the activity page to the children. Read and discuss the attributes of each person and compare them. Then discuss the following questions:

1) If you love your pet fish, and you want your fish to be okay, who would you trust to take care of your fish? (Heavenly Father)

2) Why would you trust Heavenly Father the most? (discuss His attributes)
