Bible Verse for May: "Blessed is the man who always fears the Lord, but
he who hardens his heart falls into trouble" Proverbs 28:14 (They do
their memory verse this weekend)

Bible Verse for June: “Dear brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes
your way, let it be an opportunity for joy” James 1:2

Lesson: (During the lesson you will be reading from below, but make
sure you tell the kids that the story you are about to tell is in the Bible.
Also, tell them that they are going to help you tell the story. As you tell
the story, pick kids to be the characters, and have them do what the
story says. Feel free to get them moving around the room. It will keep
their attention)
The past few weeks we’ve been talking about Moses. Remember how the
Pharaoh of Egypt finally let the Israelites go but it was only after God sent
ten plagues on Egypt. The Israelites obeyed God, and left right away. Moses
led them to the Red Sea and God separated the water so they could get
across.

• It had been three months since the Israelites left Egypt, and they set up
camp at the foot of Mt. Sinai. (Have several children pretend to put
up tents, or use the one in the room)
• (Have someone be God and someone be Moses) God called to
Moses from the mountain, and Moses went up to Him.
• God reminded Moses of how He freed the Israelites from
Pharaoh,(Have “God” say, remember how I …) and how I created
the plagues.
• Then God told Moses that if the people obey His covenants, their
nation would be great and holy in His sight.
• He told Moses to have the people cleanse themselves and be ready,
because in three days the Lord will come down on the mountain. The
people should not attempt to go up or even touch the mountain.
• So on the third day, there was thunder and lightning (Have someone
be thunder and lightning)
• The mountain was covered with a thick cloud of smoke, because the
Lord came onto it with fire. This was the time that God gave Moses
the Ten Commandments.

Ask the children if anyone can name 1 of the Ten Commandments.

(6:25, 9:40, 11:40 WORSHIP WITH PASTOR JASON – the fifth


graders will come and get you. Worship will last about 20 minutes and
then you will go back to your classroom to finish the lesson)

Activity:

Today we are going to play a game. Playing games is great fun, but we need
to make sure everyone knows the rules. We are going to play Simon Says.
(Review the rules with them) If I say, “Simon says” then do what I tell you
to do, but if I don’t say “Simon says” then don’t do anything.

Simon says turn around.


Simon says clap your hand 3 times.
Jump up and down. (Didn’t say Simon says)
Simon says touch your toes.
Simon says wiggle your finger.
Pat your head. (Didn’t say Simon says)
Simon says spin around.
Shake your head. (Didn’t say Simon says)
Simon says touch your knees.
Simon says sit down.

Say, you guys did really well. Now we’re going to play the game differently.
Let’s change the rules. This time if you do hear the words “Simon says”, I
want you to stand still. If you don’t hear the words “Simon says,” then it’s
OK to move. Now let’s play the game with our new rules. (Use the same
ones as above.)

Its fun making up new rules for games, but sometimes people try to change
rules that are not part of a game. Sometimes people try to change important
rules that Moms and Dads make. It’s wrong to change those rules. God has
rules too, and everyone must follow God’s rules. God’s rules never change.
When we follow God’s rules we are doing what’s right. Here are some of
God’s rules:
1. Love God
2. Love other people
3. Obey mom and dad
4. Don’t lie
5. Don’t steal

Craft:
If you have time, handout the memory verse puzzle and have the children
cut out their own puzzle the best they can.

Prayer/Snack:
Father God, thank you for your word today. Help me to live by your
commandments. Amen
