Philip and the Ethiopian
The Armor of God: Helmet of Salvation
Ephesians 6:10-18; Acts 8
There are 3 lessons in this set. (Our 4th lesson is "Bring your Parents to Kingdom Adventures" and focuses on the parents role in evangelizing their own kids. In that class, we are teaching parents how to conduct family devotionals. It ties in to the lesson because Philip was the "evangelist" and told the Ethiopian how to obtain salvation.)
Summary of Workshops:
- ART - Children will make “Good News tellers” and practice telling the good news about Christ. (Optional activity is to make Roman Helmets - this lesson goes with our yearly theme: Putting on the full armor of God, and we are on the Helmet of Salvation.)
- STORYTELLING - Children will learn about Philip and the Ethiopian through a modern day version of the story (Phil and the Foreigner). Children will witness a baptism and discuss its role in salvation.
- BIBLE SKILLS & GAMES - Children learn about Philip through a game based on "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" - with clues that point them to reference tools (Bible Dictionary, maps, concordance, etc.)
