HEAVEN / NEEMA

Heaven is a free Gift....it is not something you work for or deserve.

If you are using drama as well as games you can introduce the Heaven Gift Box skit here, a little boy is called up to receive a gift but he has to work for the gift ... he has to hop up and down on his leg.

Then a little girl is called up to receive a gift .. she deserves this gift because she is well dressed or her hair looks lovely.

Then the last child is called up she is told " I have a gift in here for you, but you do not have to work for it or there is nothing you can do to deserve it, I want to give you this gift because I love you with the love of the Lord"

The children are then asked if the first gift was FREE... no he had to work for it.

Was the second gift a free gift? No she had to deserve it, in fact it was only the last gift that was indeed FREE this is how Grace works.

Heaven is a free Gift....it is not something you work for or deserve.

Heaven is a free Gift....it is not something you work for or deserve.

The Trainer recites the verse to the team before they begin the game. Each child throws three balls at three small gift boxes stacked up while reciting the verse. This will help the children to remember the Gift of God verse

Game #3: Long Jump

The Trainer recites the verse to the children before they begin the game.
“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

The children stand at the line you have drawn in the dirt and are instructed to jump to the person dressed as Jesus in a white sheet with a blue sash and a yellow Jesus crown. (Ensuring ‘Jesus’ is far enough away that it is impossible to reach in one jump. )
As they try to jump but fail the Teacher reminds them that we all fall short of God's glory in the same way they fall short of the mark.

Trainer asks the children “What is sin?...Sin is anything we think, say, do or don't do that does not please God”.

“Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)

Draw a circular line on the ground with chalk or tape. Place a plastic egg on the child's head. The child recites the verse as they follow the line on the ground. The egg will fall from their head as they say the verse. Be sure to point out to the child that no one is perfect. This will help the children to remember even though we try to be perfect like God it is impossible. No one is perfect!

Trainer states as the child leaves the game. "There must be a different way -

God's way"

God is loving but God is also just. The Bible says “God is love …” (1 John 4:8b)

But the Bible also says “Yet He does not leave the guilty unpunished.” (Exodus 34:7b)

The child puts on the two gloves one marked LOVE on the right hand and the other marked JUST on the left. They are instructed to say as they hold out the right hand. "On the one hand God loves us and does not want to punish us", the child is then instructed to hold out the other hand and say "but on the other hand God is just" (he then takes his right hand and pounds his left and says) "and must punish sin".

"Jesus is God, He came from Heaven to earth, He lived a perfect life, He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, He rose from the dead and He is in Heaven now offering us the free gift of eternal life."

The Trainer then recites the verse to the children before they begin the game.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

There are a variety of options, the children jump rope while reciting the verse to the rhythm of the jump or the girls can do hand clapping games. An alternative is to pass the Globe beach ball between the trainer and the child each one saying one word of the verse as they catch the ball.

Game #7: The Big Record Book of my life

Game #7: The Big Record Book of my life

The Trainer holds out the Big Record Book (not the Bible) and says

"Let’s suppose this book is a record of my life, first page is a birth certificate the last page is my death certificate and all the pages in between contain a record of my life all the good things I have done and all the bad things I have done. There are some things in this book I am not very proud about."

The Trainer holds out his left hand and says
"Let’s suppose this hand represents me" He then places the Big Book on his left hand and says "and laying right on top of me is the record book of my life!"

The Trainer places the Big Book on his left hand and pretends that it is very heavy and says
"It contains all the good things I have done but it also contains a record of all the BAD things I have done."

The Trainer holds up his right hand high up in the air directly above the Big Book and says
"Let’s suppose this represents God. God is Holy, loving and just and His eyes are too pure and holy to even gaze on sin. (Habakkuk 1:13) So when God looks at me He can’t see me because of the sin in my life. The sin separates me from God.

Game 7

Jesus

The Trainer now brings his right hand down to the same level to his left hand and the Big Book and says

The Bible says “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Jesus"

The Trainer transfers the Big Book, which contains all his sins, from his left hand to the right hand that represents Jesus and says "the iniquity (sins) of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6)

The Trainer now brings his right hand down to the same level to his left hand and the Big Book and says

"Jesus is God, He came from Heaven to earth, He lived a perfect life.He died on the cross"

The Trainer now lowers his right hand with the Big Book to the ground allowing the book to drop and says "He was buried"

The Trainer now raises his right hand back up to Heaven high above his left hand and says "He rose from the dead and He is in Heaven now offering us the free gift of eternal life. Is there anything now that separates me from God?"

The Teacher now moves his right hand down and interlocks his left hand and says) "NOW, my sin is gone as far as the east is from the west and now I can be in the right relationship with God.

How do we get this relationship with God and the gift of eternal life?"

Game #8: Life Saviour

Game #8: Life Saviour

Trainer recites "Saving Faith is not just knowing about God in your head.... Saving Faith is not just temporary, Saving Faith is trusting in Jesus ALONE for our eternal life."

The Bible says “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved …” (Acts 16:31) "

The trainer sits in a chair and pretends to be drowning with a ‘Drowning Man’ sign around his neck calling out for HELP. Trainer asks the child to throw him a life ring. The child says the verse as he throws the ring labeled - Life Saviour

Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved …”

At the end of Game 8the child is given a little Bible verse to take with them as their reward this verse has a life ring to remind them of them they saved the drowning man and if we believe in the Lord Jesus we will be saved.

"Does this make sense to you?"

Game #9: The Door

The Trainer hides behind the door and the child knocks on the door, the trainer opens the door and says

“Jesus says ‘I stand at the door and knock, (Trainer knocks on his chest) if anyone hears my voice (Trainer cups his hand to his ear) and opens the door, (Trainer pretends to unlock a door on his chest and opens it) I will come in…” (Trainer uses two fingers to demonstrate Jesus walking into his heart) (Rev 3:20)

Game #9: The Door


The Trainer says "Jesus is a gentleman and He will not kick in the door to your heart or come in uninvited you MUST open the door and invite Him in."

Game #10: Look it up!

The Trainer asks the child if he is able to look up a verse in the Bible and read it out loud.

The trainer must be sensitive to the child’s ability to read and/or be able to find the verse.

“… he who believes has everlasting life.” (John 6:47)


(If the child is unable to read or find the verse the Trainer should help the child look it up and read it for him. The child should then repeat the verse back to the Trainer.)

At the end of Game 10 the child is given a little Bible verse to take with them as their reward this verse has a Bible on it to remind them of the last station when they were asked to find a verse in the Bible

Once all the children have experienced all the games and have their little Bible verses then they can be all gathered together and the Trainer summaries the entire Salvation message using the Story Cards with reference to the games and Bible verses learned during the FunTastic Fun Fair leading up to the point where the children are encouraged to make a decision for Jesus
