Bible Lesson:
Have the children open their Bibles to Genesis 12: 1 – 10, 13: 1 – 4, 15: 1, 15: 5 – 21 or pages 34-35 and 38-39 in The Golden Children’s Bible.

(Read the story to the children because at this age some of the children do not read smoothly, which hinders comprehension for the whole class.)

Now the Lord had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.

I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.

I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.  Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan.  Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land.

Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.  And he moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel, and he pitched his tent with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.  So Abram journeyed, going on still toward the South.

Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to dwell there, for the famine was severe in the land…

Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, to the place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram called on the name of the Lord…

After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”…

Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.”

And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

Then He said to him, “I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.”

And he said, “Lord God, how shall I know that I will inherit it?”

So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two. And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.

Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”

And it came to pass, when the sun went down and it was dark, that behold, there appeared a smoking oven and a burning torch that passed between those pieces. On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying:

“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates.”

Discussion:

  • What did God ask Abram to do? To leave his family,home and country and travel to another land.
  • Have you ever moved to a new city or state?  Was it hard to do?  Did you miss your house and your friends and family there?  It’s hard to go to a strange place isn’t it.
  • How was Abram going to know where to go? God would show him.
  • What did God promise would happen when he got to the new country? He would bless Abram and make his family into a great nation.  His family would be a blessing to all the families of the earth.
  • How do you think Abram’s family would be a blessing to the whole earth?  Eventually, many years later, Jesus would be born in his family, and he would save us from our sins.
  • Did Abram obey?  Yes.
  • Who went with him?  His wife, Sarai, and his nephew, Lot
  • Where did God take them?  The land of Canaan.  (Show the children on a map from Bible History on Line.)
  • When he got there God appeared to him again and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.”  What are descendants?  Children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, etc.
  • What did Abram do to show the Lord that he was thankful?  He built an alter to the Lord
  • Where did Abram settle in the land?  Between Bethel and Ai
  • What happened then?  A famine came.
  • What is a famine?  There was no food.
  • What did Abram do then?  He and his wife and Lot went to Egypt until the famine was over.
  • What did he come back to Canaan with?  Animals, silver and gold.
  • When Abram came back to the place he had originally settled between Bethel and Ai, what did he do?  He called on the name of the Lord.
  • What does it mean to call on the name of the Lord?  He prayed to God and trusted in Him.
  • God spoke to Abram in a vision.  What did he say to him?  He would give him children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren, etc. until there were as many of them as the stars.
  • Did Abram believe God?  Yes
  • Then God had Abram bring a cow, a goat, a ram, a turtledove and a pideon.  He cut the animals (except the birds) in half.  Then at night a burning torch came and passed between the pieces.  This was how a covenant was made in those days.   What is a covenant?  A promise.
  • What else did God show Abram in a dream?  That his family would be slaves for 400 years, but that they would come out of slavery with great riches.  Abram himself would grow old and die in peace.
  • Let’s pray and ask the Lord to help us to trust him to lead us into his perfect will for our lives.  And let’s thank him for Abraham’s descendant, Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins….

The Tower of Babel

800px-Pieter_Bruegel_the_Elder_-_The_Tower_of_Babel_(Vienna)_-_Google_Art_Project_-_edited

Scripture: Genesis 11: 1-9 or page 32 in The Golden Children’s Bible

Target Age Group:  1st through 6th grade

Welcome the children to the classroom and chat with them about their week as they gather around the table.

Pray and ask God to teach the children not just head knowledge, but also heart knowledge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bible Lesson:
Have the children open their Bibles to Genesis 11 or pages 32 in The Golden Children’s Bible.

(Read the story to the children because at this age some of the children do not read smoothly, which hinders comprehension for the whole class.)

Discussion:

  • After the flood, God told Noah and his family to spread out all over the world.  Did they do that?  No.
  • They settled in the plain in Shinar, below the mountain where the ark landed. Why do you think that they all stayed there?  It would have been easy and safe and secure to stick together.  Going out into the world apart from one another would have been difficult and scary.
  • What did they decide to do?  To build a city with a tower that reaches to the heavens.
  • What did they build the tower with? bricks and tar
  • Do you think they could reach heaven with a tower of bricks?  No.  The only way to heaven is by trusting in Jesus.
  • Why were they building it?  to make a name for themselves and so that they wouldn’t be scattered throughout the earth.
  • But, what had God told them to do?  To fill the earth
  • What do you think it means when the Bible says that they wanted to make a name for themselves?  They were pretty impressed with themselves because they could build a big tower like that.  They thought that they were pretty smart.
  • Do you see people doing the same thing today?  (Think of some big towers or monuments etc. Or think of spaceships to the moon or to mars. Discuss why man builds these things and if it is right or wrong. Building something isn’t wrong unless it is done in pride and defiance of God.)
  • And do you think that God wanted them to make a name for themselves?  No.  God wanted them to glorify him – not themselves.
  • They were directly disobeying what God had told them to do, weren’t they. 
  • What did God do to stop them?  He confused their language so that they weren’t able to understand each other.
  • Can you try to imagine what that would have been like?  If you asked for a hammer, your partner would maybe have handed you a saw, or you need a screwdriver and you’re handed a yardstick, etc.
  • After their language was confused what did they do?  They quit building the tower and spread out to other places in the world.
  • Do you think that you can stop God’s plan from happening?  No.  God’s will will be done.
  • God planned that Jesus would come and die on the cross for our sins.  Satan wasn’t able to stop that plan either, was he.
  • Let’s pray and ask the Lord to help us to always be humble and do what he has told us to do.  And let’s thank him for his plan of salvation in Christ…

Noah and His Sons Build the Ark Genesis 6:14-16

Scripture: Genesis Chapter 6: 5-6, 9 – 22; Chapter 7: 1 -5, 13 – 24, Chapter 8: 1-22, Chapter 9: 1 – 3, 8 – 19 or pages 26 – 31 in The Golden Children’s Bible

Target Age Group:  1st through 6th grade

Welcome the children to the classroom and chat with them about their week as they gather around the table.

Pray and ask God to teach the children not just head knowledge, but also heart knowledge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bible Lesson:
Have the children open their Bibles to Genesis Chapter 6 or page 26 in The Golden Children’s Bible.

(Read the story to the children because at this age some of the children do not read smoothly, which hinders comprehension for the whole class.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

During the remaining class time do activities that help to reinforce what the children have learned. Here are some suggestions…

  • Why did God decide to bring the flood?  Because men on earth had become very wicked.
  • Why didn’t he destroy Noah?  Noah was obedient to God.
  • Have you ever felt like you were the only one who wanted to do good or to follow the Lord?
  • That’s hard, isn’t it.  But, who is always with you and always your friend?  God is!
  • Describe the ark that God told Noah to make.  Made of cypress wood, covered with pitch, 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high (or about 135 meters long, 23 meters wide and 14 meters high), a window and one door, 3 decks, an opening of a cubit below the roof, rooms inside it.  Show pictures of a replica to give them a visual of the scale.
  • What was Noah to bring onto the ark?  His wife, his sons and their wives, two of every kind of unclean animal (male and female), 7 pairs of every clean animal, 7 pairs of every kind of bird, food of all kinds to feed them all.
  • How would Noah get the animals to the ark?  God would cause the animals to come.
  • How many days did it rain? 40 days and 40 nights
  • Where else was the water coming from? springs in the earth
  • How many days were they on the ark? 450 days.  (Explain that a year is only 365 days, so Noah and his family were on the ark for more than a year!)  That would be a long time to be cooped up inside, wouldn’t it.
  • Where did the ark land? on the mountains of Ararat.
  • How did Noah know that the ground was dry? The dove that he sent out didn’t return.
  • What did Noah do when he got off the ark?  He built an alter to the Lord and he  burnt offerings.
  • What promise did God make?  to never destroy the earth with a flood again.
  • What sign of this promise did God give? the rainbow
  • Let’s pray and tell the Lord that we will always follow him even when nobody else does.  And let’s thank him for his promise to never send a flood again…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Memorize the verse.

Genesis 6:8  “Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”
