Monthly Theme: God Speaks through Prophets.
Monthly Scripture: “He spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began” Luke 1:70
Week 1 Prophets are called by God.
* Have 10-16 children come up front. Have a few pieces of paper. Tell the children you are going to give them a task. They need to divide into 2 teams with equal number of people, make 4 paper airplanes and then toss the airplanes across the room 1 time.
It will probably be a little chaotic. Especially with junior primary! Give it a minute. It might get a little loud. See if anyone takes charge among the children. Go ahead and interrupt the children and ask the following questions. Does it help when there is someone there to lead, guide, and direct? What is it like when there is no one to turn to for instruction?
Now assign one child to divide the groups. Have that child also decide who will make the paper airplanes and who will fly them.
How would our church be if we didn't have a prophet to tell us the will of The Lord? Prophets are called of God! They are good men who were chosen before the world was to help guide us back to Heavenly Father.
