We finished the books of the Bible today with Jude and Revelation. Our key verse was Revelation 17:14.
We used the King Snake as our object lesson. King Snakes can bite, as can cute and fluffy cats, dogs and hamsters, but they’re not poisonous. In fact, farmers like having King Snakes around because they kill the mice that eat crops, and they eat dangerous snakes like rattlesnakes, coral snakes and copperheads. Unfortunately, people don’t realize what good King Snakes can bring, so they usually kill them.
There was another King who was also killed because people didn’t realize who He was and what He came to bring. That King was Jesus Christ. Today, your children heard the gospel of His life and purpose here on earth and looked up verses to learn what it meant that He is King of kings and Lord of Lords.
Make a Paper Spiral Snake
Supplies: Pencil or crayon, scissors
Look up Revelation 17:14. Discuss what it means that God is King of kings and Lord of lords. Write the verse on the spiral snake (make sure to capitalize words like He and His because those are words about God), cut on the spiral line and hang it up! If your child knows the verse on June 7, they’ll get three extra tickets in the Treasure Box!
Remember that we’re always here for you. If you need support, guidance, or help, contact Tonya Lawson, Children’s Minister, at 480-963-3439 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child brings this back next week with your signature, saying you did it together as a family, they will get an extra ticket to go in the Treasure Box drawing and a Children’s Church buck to save for the store.
