Things You Can Use / Jan 28, 2019
Note to the Teacher
This week, we bring all the greater gifts together and look to the greatest gift of all – LOVE. In the box this week, you’ll need the items needed to play the game described below (resources needed are described at the end of this lesson) and a heart-shaped item. You will also need the ‘gift’ items from the previous weeks’ lessons to show at the end of this lesson. We’ll use them for a short review of what we’ve learned so far.
Times are based on a 55-minute lesson period but can be adjusted as is necessary.
1. Ice Breaker & Game - Whisper Challenge:
Start this lesson with a bang by getting students laughing using the activity Whisper Challenge from the Youth Worker Collective (https://youthworkercollective.com/whisper-challenge/).
Transition: God gave us an entire chapter in the Bible that helps us define love. Paul wrote it in the book of 1 Corinthians.
2. Read Scripture & Discuss
Read 1 Corinthians 13
Note that this chapter follows the chapter on gifts that we’ve been looking into the past two weeks.
Pull a heart-shaped cookie, paper, or pillow…out of the box as you begin this discussion
Finish by reviewing all the gifts from the box: the water, the gift inventory, the puzzle, and the heart.
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.
