shadrach, meshach, and abednego
The Bible Story for Day 2 is Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace. God sends Jesus into the furnace with the three men to protect them. This story definitely shows that "God protects us."
Instead of reading the extremely long story, the children will be acting out a play of the story. This play has many different characters and incorporates everyone in the group. It is a fun way to teach the story. Below are directions to create a decoration for the play.
- Red paper
- Black paint
- Red construction paper
- Orange construction paper
- Yellow construction paper
- Glue sticks
Measure out the amount of red paper you need. Fold it in half then cut out half a furnace. The folding will keep it symmetrical. Paint bricks on the entire red paper with black paint. Paint an entrance to the furnace with black paint. Cut out flames from the construction paper. Glue the flames onto the entrance.
