Level 1 Lesson Plan: Paul, the Faithful Witness

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in five 15- to 20-minute sessions, relating to the lesson objectives: “Be able to list Jesus’ twelve disciples who followed Him while He was on earth, and the role that they played in helping Jesus in His mission,” and “learn of some of the lives of the great men and women of the Bible.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Discipleship-1b; and Christian Life and Faith: Witnessing and Missionary Training: Great Men and Women of God-1a

SESSIONS 1 – 4
Read and study
the following classes, going over one a day. (Tip: To gain the most from these classes, read the story in a children’s or regular Bible. Scriptural references are found within each article.)

SESSION 5
Listen to
the audio “I Know Whom I Have Believed.” Look up 2 Timothy 1:12 in the Bible to show the children which of Paul’s letters this is from.

Study the verses in “Crazily Cool Card Set: Want Some Power?” Ask the children if they can find the one verse that was written by Paul. (Answer: 2 Corinthians 4:7.)

Discuss the verses in “Crazily Cool Cards Set: An Active Force Field.”

Memorize a verse from one of the above two “Crazily Cool Card Sets.” (You can also print these out to use as coloring pages.)

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Introducing Paul the Apostle

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 30 to 45 minutes, relating to the lesson objectives: “Be able to list Jesus’ twelve disciples who followed Him while He was on earth, and the role that they played in helping Jesus in His mission,” and “learn of some of the lives of the great men and women of the Bible.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Discipleship-1b; and Christian Life and Faith: Witnessing and Missionary Training: Great Men and Women of God-1a)

Read Faith-filled Models from the New Testament: Paul the Apostle” and November Hero of the Month: Paul the Apostle.” If the children are unfamiliar with the martyrdom of Stephen, read about Stephen from the story found in Acts 7:1–60. You can find a simple visualization of the story here.

Did you know that “The Feast of Saint Stephen” is celebrated in some countries on the 26th of December, the day after Christmas, to honor Stephen as the first Christian martyr?

Listen to An Audio Bible Adventure: A Rabbi Sees the Light.

ColorColoring Page: The Acts of the Apostles: The Road to Damascus.” You might also like to assemble this 3D picture, “3D Picture: The Acts of the Apostles: The Road to Damascus.”

Do you know why the book of Acts uses the names of both “Saul” and “Paul” for the same man? “But Saul, who was also called Paul…” (Acts 13:9 ESV). Saul was his name in Hebrew. Paul was his name in Latin, the language of the Roman Empire.

ReadThe Acts of the Apostles: Saul Escapes in a Basket.” To give the children a fuller study of this story, you can also read with them Acts 9:8–25. There is also a coloring page and a 3D picture that accompanies this story.

Ask the children if they can think of another Bible story that has to do with someone being lowered from the top of a house. (See “A Plan to Help a Friend.”)

More to come later covering more of Paul’s exciting adventures!

Anticipating Christmas!

You can begin celebrating Christmas now by starting to prepare The Nativity Story paper model. The goal is to create and set out a new section each week of December, so you can place Baby Jesus in the manger on Christmas morning.

Alternately, you can create the pieces in advance, and then starting on December 1st, set out one or two pieces a day, with the aim of adding Baby Jesus on Christmas Day, and the wise men with their gifts the following days.

To set out The Nativity Story paper model as the story unfolds:

Sunday, December 4th: Mary, Joseph, and the donkey, as they prepare for their trip to Bethlehem.

Sunday, December 11th: In Bethlehem, set up the stable, manger, cow, cats, chickens, and mouse, ready to receive their unexpected guests.

Sunday, December 18th: Outside of Bethlehem, place the shepherds, sheep, and campfire.

Sunday, December 25th: Bring all the characters to the stable, adding Baby Jesus to the manger and the angel announcing His birth.

Sunday, January 1st: The wise men arrive with their camels, bearing gifts for Baby Jesus.

The Nativity Story paper model can be found here, where it is offered by the model creator, Didier Martin, to download, print, and assemble.

Download all three PDFs that include the model parts. Also, download the instructions, which teach how to cut, fold, and glue together your Nativity scene.

Note: The most difficult piece to assemble is the stable. If you prefer, you could use a small box, set on its side, and then glue the leaves to the top and the textured wall pieces or colored paper on the inside and outside of the box.

  • Ask the children if it would have still been better for Nick to honor his agreement with his grandmother, even if he didn’t get to play at the park.
  • Read the Bible verse, Proverbs 3:27, at the end of the class, and ask the children if they can think of personal examples of when they did something for another person at the cost of forgoing something fun they had wanted to do.
  • Follow this up by reading “Kindness Pays Forward,” and talk about how in Nick’s case, his consideration of his grandmother paid forward and she also considered his desire to play with his friend.

Apply the verses of “Crazily Cool Cards Set: Giving” to the acts of consideration discussed so far.

  • Read one verse at a time, and apply it to the topics discussed in this class.
  • Choose a verse to memorize or review. Print out and color the card.
