Things You Can Use / Jan 22, 2019
Note to the Teacher
Note to Teacher: We are all like a puzzle, with each of our pieces fitting together as the Body of Christ to bring the Kingdom of God more fully here on earth as it is in heaven. This week we are exploring how all our greater gifts work together.
Times are based on a 55-minute lesson period but can be adjusted as is necessary.
1. Ice Breaker:
Bring a set of board games from home or ask people to bring some of their favorites with them. If you aren’t a board game person, consider making a quick trip to a thrift store and pick up whatever they have there. Ask students to stack the board games in order of preference from favorite on top to least favorite on bottom. Start with the person who is sure they know what their stack will look like, have them stack the board games, then ask them to answer the following questions. Once a student has finished, have him/her pass the stack to the next person, who will repeat the process.
2. Read Scripture & Discuss
Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a
3. Activity - Puzzles And The Body Of Christ
Take this lesson to the next level by getting students’ problem solving involved using the activity Puzzles and the Body of Christ from the Youth Worker Collective (https://youthworkercollective.com/puzzles-and-the-body-of-christ/) .
Close in the manner that is typical for you. Consider taking joys/concerns from the students, then ask for a volunteer to close in prayer.
