Sunday School The Tower of Babel

Sunday School Lesson 12: The Tower of Babel As a child, the story about the Tower of Babel fascinated me. I honestly believed that the people were capable of building a tower that would reach into heaven, where God “lived”, and it was interesting to think what they might find there. I felt disappointed and even somewhat annoyed that God mixed up their language and they could no longer work on the tower. Needless to say, my understanding of the this story was… let’s just say inaccurate. Not only was it inaccurate, but it led me to have a false understanding of an omnipotent God and His plan for mankind. It was my mission, as I prepared the lesson plan for our little ones, to ensure that they did not have the same misunderstandings of the event, nor about God. I used some Duplo blocks and Lego people to act out the story. We started where we had left off the previous week – Noah, his family and all the animals had just gotten off the ark and God told them to have many children and spread out over all the earth. And so, they had many children, just as God had told them. However, they didn’t listen to the last bit...

Sunday School God Keeps His Promises

Sunday School Lesson 11: God Keeps His Promises This is the last of three lessons about Noah. You can view the first lesson in the series here and the second lesson here. The aim of this third lesson was to show our kiddos that God can be trusted to keep His promises! Last week, we saw how Noah and his family got ready to board the ark and how God was involved in that process. This week, we started by taking talking about about Noah, his family and all the animals that had boarded the ark. God had just closed the door to the ark behind them and they were waiting to see what would happen. Would it start to rain, just as God had said? Suddenly, they heard a great roar of thunder and lightning flashed across the sky and it started to rain. And it rained and rained and rained. We were curious to see what Mr and Mrs. Noah were doing inside the ark. Were they scared by the thunder and lighting? Nope! They did not look one but worried or scared. In fact, they looked quite happy; God had kept them safe from the coming waters and they knew God would continue to be with them. They had nothing to fear because they knew God...
