Sunday School Activities to teach the lesson of “Jesus Heals Ten Lepers”
Explain what leprosy is to the children in a way that they will understand it.
Tell the story of Jesus healing the ten lepers from Luke 17: 11-19. You can tell this story using a children’s bible or just tell it in such a way that this age group can understand it.
Talk about being thankful. Trace each child’s hand on construction paper. Have each child tell you five things that they are thankful for and write one thing on each construction paper finger. Let the children decorate their construction paper hands with stickers or crayons.
Have the children draw, on a piece of paper, what they are thankful for.
Sing “I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy”
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, (where?)
down in my heart, (where?), down in my heart,
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, (where?) down in my heart to stay.
2nd time through: I’ve got the peace that passes understanding down in my heart
3rd time through: I’ve got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus, down in my heart
4th time through: I’ve got the wonderful love of my blessed redeemer way down in the depths of my heart
