Early Bird Special: Magnifying Pictures
Children who arrive between 9:30 and 9:45 AM get to do a bonus activity in Sabbath School. Today the early birds used magnifying glasses to see tiny pictures of God's creation and match them up with their bigger image counterparts. Our Bible story today is about Simeon and Anna who were able to see something special in tiny baby Jesus. Simeon told God, "My eyes have seen Your Salvation" (Luke 2:30).
Nature Nugget: Electricity
Today, the children learned that electricity is the flowing movement of electrons or charged ions, and that movement gives power to do all kinds of things. In our bodies electricity helps our brain tell our muscles what to do, and it helps our muscles tell our brains what they are feeling. Electricity is also when lightning strikes. It can be very dangerous if too much electrical current touches you. We usually cannot see electricity, but we can see how it powers things on. Materials that allow electricity to flow are called conductors. We played with the "Energy Stick" to see that we are conductors, too. The Bible says in Luke 6:19, "And the whole multitude sought to touch [Jesus], for power went out from Him and healed them all." Jesus was a conductor of God's healing power. We can still touch Him by faith through prayer and claiming His Bible promises.
Memory Mastery: The 10 Commandments
We are working on memorizing the 10 Commandments with the Bible references, Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5. Children can still earn their widow's mite coins by reciting their Moses Receives the 10 Commandments story line and Bible reference.
Mission Mail: Salohy and Yvonne, Part 3
Yvonne and Salohy asked Yvonne's parents if Yvonne could continue attending the church meetings at night. Yvonne's parents agreed. Salohy invited Yvonne's parents to come, too, but they said no. Yvonne and Salohy continued to go to the meetings. They had so much fun learning more about Jesus from the Bible and singing songs. They also kept inviting other friends. When the meetings started, there were only 9 children. By the time the meetings ended, their were 32 children. Yvonne and Salohy were real missionaries for Jesus.
