Today we are talking about Faith. Do you know what Faith is? Faith is believing.
In the book of Hebrews, chapter 11, it says that faith is believing what we hope for and being certain of what we can’t see. That means, we hope to live with God in heaven forever, so we believe in His promises and that He sent His son Jesus to die for us. And even though we can’t SEE God…we are sure He is there and that He loves us.
Did you know you can see God’s power when it thunders and lightnings? You can feel God’s love when your mommy or daddy give you hugs. You can see God’s beauty in the flowers, or pretty fall leaves. We know God takes care of us, because He gives us rain and water and food.
Even though Noah had never seen rain before, he believed God when God told him to build an ark because it would rain.
And little David who went to fight Goliath believed that God would help him and He did.
And Daniel’s friends believed in God and trusted Him when they were thrown into the fire, and He protected them.
The Bible is FULL of stories of people who believed God…people who had FAITH in God. (Just start in Hebrews 11 for examples!)
We can have faith in God, because God is FAITHFUL…He never changes, we can always count on Him.
For our craft today, i traced almond and circle shapes, then the kids cut them out and glued them to make eyes and we drew pupils and eyelashes/eyebrows and put Hebrews 11:1 as our verse.
This is a sign language version of Hebrews 11:1: from Saddleback Kids

That’s all for today. We are nearing the end of our lessons on living a Godly life…just a few left. In July, we’ll be starting over in Genesis so if you want to complete the whole Bible with us, July is the time to start! Thanks, Love to you all!
