0-5 Lesson Plan: God’s Healing Touch

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30-minute 0–5 lesson plan on God’s healing power and the things that can be learned during times of affliction.

Read In Times of Sickness.”

Talk about a time when your child was sick and the things he or she might have learned during that time. Did it help him or her to appreciate good health, have more compassion for others who are unwell, or want to follow guidelines for healthy living better next time?

Read God’s Healing Touch.”

Recall some of the stories in the Bible where someone was healed, and talk about how those miracles of healing might have changed the person’s life for the better.

Read Bright Pebbles: God’s Power to Heal.”

Watch Blind Bartimaeus.”

Create and colorColoring Book: Blind Bartimaeus.” This book has many pages and does not need to be colored all in one sitting. If you wish, you could first create the booklet with your child, color the first one or two pages, and save the rest of the coloring for later, or have your child complete it during his or her own time.

Take one of your stuffed animals and pretend that it is sick. Can you think of something that would cheer up your animal and help it feel better? Maybe a soft blanket to keep it warm, a game to cheer it up, or a lullaby to be soothed by. The lesson with this activity being that Jesus lovingly cares for you, too, whenever you are sick.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Jesus Cares

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 20 to 30 minutes, highlighting the lesson objectives:

Read Jesus Understands When You’re Sick.” To help your children understand how different things were when Jesus was here on earth, ask them what other things they can think of that might have been different for Jesus as a boy. For example, He didn’t use a toothbrush and toothpaste bought at a supermarket.

Read Faith-filled Models from the New Testament: Jairus and his daughter.” Read the full story in Mark 5:22–24, 35–43, or Luke 8:41–42, 49–55.

Read Standing on God’s Word: God’s Healing Touch.”

ReadJesus Is with You!” Relating back to “Standing on God’s Word: God’s Healing Touch,” talk with the children about how if Brendan had received an injury requiring attention, he would have been taken to see a doctor, and then Jesus would have been there alongside the doctor and nurses who cared for him.

Ask the children for stories about the times and ways Jesus has helped them through their accidents or illnesses.

Choose a verse from “Crazily Cool Cards Set: God’s Healing Power” to color, memorize, or review.

  • Ananias healing Saul (Paul) from blindness (Acts 9:17–18)
  • Peter healing Aeneas (Acts 9:32–35)
  • Peter raising Dorcas from the dead (Acts 9:39–42)
