the main story
The theme for Day 3 is "God provides for us." Elijah went to a widow asking for food. She said she only had enough to make one last meal for her and her son. Elijah told her to trust God, and her flour and oil never ran out. God provided for her just as He does everyday for us. We are provided with many things. The activity today is a guessing game showing some items that God provides.
- 4 towels
- 2 sheets
- A pitcher of water
- A bowl of fruit
- A toy house to represent shelter
- Shoes to represent clothing
- One of the teachers who is a parent
- Your Pastor/Minister
For this activity, have a table set up with all these items covered by towels. Have the people covered by sheets. Have the children guess what is underneath them. Once revealed, talk to them about how God provides it for them.
