The Great Feast Lesson/Ideas Set

The Great Feast

Summary of lessons/ideas in this set:

  • Art: Kids will create two refrigerator magnet "invitations," one for their own family, and one to give away.
  • Games: Kids will play a game that excludes, and then hear the parable Jesus told of the great feast where all are included by playing a Bingo game. The original game will then be changed so all are included rather than excluded.
  • Drama-Cooking-Feast: idea where students will create a feast where the foods represent an idea in the lesson, sort of like a Seder.

Neil added

  • Stations of the Great Banquet: idea which RE-INTERPRET 'stations' from the Passover story along the lines of what Jesus was teaching in the parable of the Great Banquet.

Scripture Reference:

Luke 14:12-24

Bible memory verse: "… Blessed is the person who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God." Luke 14:15

In this Rotation children will learn...
The Great Feast is an invitation to join with Jesus.
It is a demonstration of how we are to live with each other, and reach out to all.
It is a glimpse of the promised Kingdom Jesus is calling us into here and now, and in eternity.

This unit was created by Jan Hanson for First Presbyterian Church, Napa CA.
