This week's object lesson is from John 21
Jesus has a good plan for each of us. If we LOVE Him, we will follow HIM, no matter where He leads us!
Object Lesson: "Fisher-Of-Men"
What You’ll Need: Paper Clips, String, Popsicle Sticks, Paper, Scissors, Hole Punch, Tape, Penny, Nickel, Quarter and Dollar.
Have your kids draw four fish about the size of a tennis ball and then have them draw a friend or family member in a boat about the same size on a single sheet of 8.5x11 piece of paper and then have them cut each of them out. It doesn’t have to be exact, cutting a circle out around each of them is fine. Then punch a hole in each and fold it up that edge so that the kids can fish it off the table with the paper clip hooks tide to the popsicle stick fishing poles.
Finally, before they start to fish, place a piece of money on each fish and write the name of their loved one on the person in the boat that they drew, position each of their fish on the edge of the table. Tell them they only have time to fish out one before the rest fall off the edge of the waterfall and they must choose whether they will be a fisher of fish or a fisher-of-men.
Talk about how important it is to live on mission for the Lord!
