Journey's of Paul
Computer Workshop Sketch
We put up camping tents, tossed in sleeping bags, and laid our computers on them for this summer workshop. It was wonderful.
Summary of Lesson Activities:
Use the Life of Christ and Life of Paul CD from Kids Interactive Bible series.
Learn more about all 6 programs in this series.
Discovery Interactive’s "Life of Christ" CD has gone out of print (its material
has been turned into an online course). Learn more here!
- Obtain the software.
- Preview the software.
- Read the scripture ahead of time.
Greet the children and introduce yourself.
Ask the kids to tell you what they know about Paul. Introduce Paul as 'another brave follower of God like Daniel whom we just studied." Ask them to review 'what makes someone able to be strong in their faith (like Daniel) and then tell them to be on the look-out for those same traits in Paul.
Take a quick look at the New Testament world map in Life of Christ (maps are up on bookshelf in main menu). Paul travelled the Roman Empire and many kids will have no conception of where, how far, the varieties of countries and languages, or the dangers.
Next...open the Life of Paul software and go into the Bible Time Theater. View all three clips telling them we'll first be bringing everyone up to speed on 'who is Paul' by looking at his conversion experience, healing miracle and then....the shipwreck video clip. Pay special attention to the shipwreck video. Discuss it in the context of the dangers Paul encountered while travelling. Considering how far and dangerous his travels were, what do you suppose motivated Paul?
Then...we'll pay special attention to the following study notes found in the Discover the Bible Section of the program:
Heroes and Villains: Stephen, staying strong in your faith.
I Wonder: "What is the Good News?"
Do the Right Thing: How to make it through tough times.
Sticky Situations: Success and suffering rejection.
Amazing Facts: Paul suffered through these many things....and still gave thanks.
Finish up with the whole group together. Summarize what's important to know about Paul and his bravery. Then.....Ask them to identify one or two people in their family or among friends who they need to talk to about God (the importance of learning about God, going to church, etc.).
Have them write this person's name on a sheet of paper as someone to invite to Sunday School and worship next week.
