God’s Love in Colors was the theme of the daily Kids Bible Club held at the Pataskala Seventh Day Baptist Church each morning July 15-19,2019. Each day a group of kids ages 4-12 (with a couple younger siblings) met from 10:30 am to noon for a Bible Lesson, Crafts, Games, and a snack. Each day had a different color as the theme based on the Wordless Book which tells the Gospel story in colors.
Monday the color was BLACK and we learned that we all have sinned and reviewed the story of Adam & Eve. We talked about darkness and that Jesus said He is the Light of the World. We made blindfolds with the Bible verse on it during crafts and had a series of games maneuvering an obstacle course blindfolded. Our color themed snack was Oreo cookies.
On Tuesday, our color was RED which stands for the blood Jesus shed for our forgiveness when He died on the cross. Our Bible verse for this day was John 3:16. We decorated red foam door knob hangers and played a version of freeze tag using a red blanket for our game. When you are tagged, you are frozen until the designated person covers you with the red blanket to set you free, similar to the way Jesus’ blood covers our sin to set us free. Our snack was red jello cups.
Our color Wednesday was WHITE representing new life when we accept Jesus’ forgiveness. We had an interesting Blible lesson about Nicodemus and an illustration of how Jesus (bleach) erases our sin (iodine) to give us a new life. For our craft we made a caterpillar out of wooden sticks that unfolded into a butterfly! For our game, we had fun tossing crumpled paper balls into white laundry baskets with half of the kids each facing opposite directions to throw back any extras that didn’t make it into the basket. Our white snack was Rice Krispee Squares.
On Thursday our color was GOLD and we talked about what the Bible says Heaven will be like. We decorated a yellow folder with puzzles & games for our craft and had a Treasure Hunt for the game. Our snack was yellow drink and cheese balls!
Friday the color was GREEN and we talked about how to grow as Christians. We planted a flower together as we talked about what a flower needs to grow and what we need to grow. For crafts, we made a beaded cross necklace and then played a review game with the things we learned this week. Snack was green drink and sugar cookies with green sugar on them.
It was a great week. Here are some more pictures of the fun we had:
