I find that my 2-5 year olds learn quickly when I use coloring pages to teach my Sunday school lesson. Try these Sunday school activities, discussions and song to teach your students the lesson of Rahab and how they can show they believe in God.
Sunday School Activities to teach the “Lesson of Rahab”
Tell the story of Rahab (Joshua 2, 5, and 6). You can tell the story using children’s bible or just tell the story in a way that this age group can understand it.
Talk about how the way that we act shows whether we [tag]believe in God[/tag] or not. Emphasize that if we are mean to our friends, we are not showing that we believe in God. On the other hand, if we stop to help someone, then we are showing that we believe in God.
Have the children make a card.
Need: Paper, crayons
Give the children paper. Have them make a card to give to an older person in the church. Emphasize that making these cards will brighten someone’s day and show that they believe in God and want to do something good.
You can have the children make a big picture on poster board to hang in the church. Have them draw a picture of something good they can do for the church, such as picking up trash, turning the lights off when they leave a room, giving a friend a hug on Sunday Morning, etc. Emphasize to the children that this will show the congregation that they believe in God and want to do good things.
Give each child a piece of paper and some crayons. Have them draw a picture of something that they can do to show that they believe in God.
Sing the song R-A-H-A-B to the tune of B-I-N-G-O
There was a girl God used for good and Rahab was her name-o
and Rahab was her name-o.
