Grace Kids Lesson September 6
Talk about it:
brightly colored paper (1 sheet for every 2 kids)
cups (2 per child)
cotton balls (1 per child)
Make Doorways to Heaven
Say: There are so many fun places we can go.
Share briefly about a place you love to go.
Ask: • What’s your favorite place in the whole world?
Say: Those are amazing places, but heaven’s even better than all those places, and we get to be there with God. Jesus wants to lead us there. He is the only way to heaven. Let’s make something to remind us that Jesus leads us to heaven.
Go Through the Door
Say: When we want to go inside a place, we don’t usually climb through a window. That would be silly! We go in through the door. That’s the way to get inside. On our craft, there’s one special door to get inside. Show kids the doorway cut into the paper. We even put a cross over the doorway to remind us that Jesus is the only way to heaven. Let’s practice getting a pretend person (show kids a cotton ball) through the door into heaven. Give each child a cotton ball, and encourage kids to try to blow their cotton balls through the doorway in their papers. Continue as time allows.
Say: The person has to go through the special door—only one way—to get to heaven. For us, there’s only one way to get to heaven: Jesus! We need Jesus to show us the way. Jesus is the only way to heaven.
