Icebreaker: Play game musical stones or chairs or sticks. Play some music from your phone or ask the children to sing a song. When the music stops the children find a chair to sit on, a stick to stand on or a stone to stand next to. Whoever has no chair, stone or stick is out of the game. Keep playing until there is one winner. Clap for them. (please note it’s played like musical chairs or dancing chairs)

Good Reports: Introduce new children and let the children share about last week, testimonies of what God has done. Share your testimony as well.

Theme: FAMILY.

Topic: FUN WORSHIP AND GAMES

OBJECTIVE: The children will learn that there is a time for everything. A time to study and a time to play. A time to have fun and a time to be serious. The children will have fun and worship God in his presence.   

Read Psalm 150. As you read the Psalm, the children say Amen at the end of every sentence. Have the reading while you are standing and make a joyful noise to the Lord at the end and begin with 3 hyper songs of worship.

Praise the Lord.Amen

  1. Praise God in His sanctuary; Amen praise him in his mighty heavens. Amen
  2. Praise him for his acts of power; Amen praise him for his surpassing greatness. Amen
  3. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, Amen praise him with the harp and lyre, Amen
  4. praise him with tambourine and dancing, Amen praise him with the strings and pipe, Amen
  5. praise him with the clash of cymbals, Amen praise him with resounding cymbals. Amen
  6. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Amen Praise the Lord. Amen

Worship:  Come up with 3 best loved hyper songs for example;

Game time: Play two games of your choice. Or you could use these ones;

Game one: Dancing competition. Choose some boys and girls and let them compete in dancing. Eliminate until there is only one winner. You could ask the children to vote for the best dancer but use your discretion as the facilitator.

Game two:  Balloon burst. Choose may be 5 boys and 5 girls and tie balloons on their legs. The goal is for them to protect their balloons while bursting other people’s balloons. The winner is the child that still has their balloon on their legs. Remind the children to play fair.

Worship: Choose 3 other songs of your choice be sure to include a slow song. For example;

Prayer: Ask the children to make small groups. In their groups let them thank God for the great term at school & home, pray that the holidays will go on well and share their personal requests as well.

Share the vision: Clap for the children who brought someone to cell. Encourage them to invite their friends and neighbours to come for cell.
