We find that a bible-bop is a great way of moving from the games into the worship. Children prefer this to singing and this will draw them to the worship area. We suggest using it again after tea to draw people back to the worship area.

Prince of Egypt
The video we focus on today is taken from the Prince of Egypt which is a beautifully produced animated film based on the life of Moses - Sample

It is available from Eden or Amazon

Arrow Craft

Each month we suggest a couple of crafts. One is a corporate activity to produce something to put up on the wall or in the church to show that children are present, active and part of the church. The other is individual for them to make something and take it home.


Crossing the Red Sea 
This month's corporate activity is to make a collage of crossing the Red Sea. We would suggest making a large version of the image provided and then get each child to draw themselves on small pieces of paper (or even small pieces of OHP film if you have some tucked away and the special pens) and then add their pictures to the collage asking them would they trust God to walk through the sea like that - Image

There is a corporate cooking activity on the ABC Jesus loves me page that looks fun. You use jelly, whipped topping and marshmellows to tell the story and then they can share the finished product (perhaps as part of the tea). There are also links to colouring sheets.

There is a craft of making a Moses that stretches out his arm and a template at Danielle's Place of Crafts and Activities on the Bible Themes Moses Page. (this is only available on the subscription part of the site).

Arrow Tea

We have found that sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls, pizza, jelly and ice cream make a really good Sunday tea. The Notes suggest a number of "I wonder questions" to start conversations about the video and the story.

Arrow Response

I can do all things We suggest calling everyone back to the worship space by repeating the bible-bop

It is a good idea, if possible, to get a child to read it or ask for volunteers to read it a screen each.
