Sackcloths are used several times in the Bible as people repent for their wrong doing. This is a great way of bringing that idea into today.
Kids used the welcome time to add words of repentance and praise to God to clear/white garbage bags. Then they were cut to fit over their clothes and they wore them through the lesson.
I’m always looking for a fun memory verse game. Here, two copies of the memory verse are written on paper plates, one word per plate. Each team uses a broom, relay style (taking turns) to bring back a word in the memory verse, handing off the broom to the next team mate to go get the next word until the whole verse is assembled in order.
With two copies of the verse in play, the two teams compete to see who can have their verse assembled in order first. It was great fun! Watch out for flying broom handles, though!
Here’s another great drawing video by Louise! See the bottom of this post for links to previously posted videos.

If you attended any of the past several weeks of sermons by Dr. Fenton at Dawson you were treated to the amazing artistry of Louise Barbour. She teaches 3rd Grade Life Groups on Sunday and she often treats the class to drawing of their Bible Stories.
She even goes so far as to have them contribute scribbles to a blank pages and then she turns the scribbles into the story they’re learning. Amazing. This is not a skill that everyone can bring to their lessons, but we are able to share the videos from the sermons on lessons for kids. We will be posting these for the next couple of weeks for you to enjoy, and to maybe use to illustrate your lessons as they come up.
The first lesson is Jacob and Esau. Click the picture below to go to the video.
