Out of ideas? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!
Check out our kid-friendly video and join us in making a paper boat together.
This session is great for kids and families and teaches how God is always in control and how the Bible can always bring us HOPE.
Today we are looking at a great story from the Bible on Hope. One day Jesus and His disciples were in a boat and a big scary storm came. There were massive waves and strong winds. While the disciples were terrified, Jesus was not… He was sleeping! The disciples woke Jesus up asking Him how He could be sleeping in such a ferocious storm. Jesus got up and He ordered the wind and the waves to be still. After that, everything calmed down and peace was restored. So next time things seem a bit scary and uncertain – just like that storm, remember you can always read your Bible and talk to God. He will bring you peace, no matter how scary the situation seems.
For today’s fun faith building activity we are going to make a paper boat together!

FAITH TRIGGER CARD – Let’s talk about WORRY…
JESUS SAYS: Do not worry about what you will eat, drink or wear. Is not life more than food and clothes? (Matthew 6:25 NIV) Instead of worrying, pray… letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. (Philippians 4:4 MSG)
TAKE-AWAY: Don’t let worry overwhelm you. Bring it down to size by talking to someone, praying, taking a step that might help, and making space to find joy.
BLESSING TO PRAY OVER EACH OTHER: May the Lord give you His peace as you pile your troubles on His shoulders and let Him carry your load.
