Children's Cell Leaders Guide 24 June 2017

Download the new Children's Cell Report here

Icebreaker: Ask the children to act out a “SKIT” about personal hygiene or a song on hygiene including the actions. “Please be creative as you do this and make it fun.”

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

Praise & worship: Prepare songs of your choice and pick a few of the children to lead others in praise and worship.

Theme: FAMILY.

Topic: PERSONAL HYGIENE

Objective: By the end of the cell, Children will know that their bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit and that they should value and clean them always.

PROPS (Things you must have when doing the lesson): Razorblade, Nail Cutter, Mirror (Girls), Comb, Pads, boy’s Underwear, girl’s underwear, Tooth brush, Hair brush for boys, soap, sponge, toothpaste, Vaseline, deodorant if possible, etc.

HOW TO DO IT? Separate the girls from the boys, and let each group have their own session to allow openness. In case your cell has more young ages 3-6yrs – you can mention the majors only you don’t have to go into details of some things mentioned. Only hint on the majors based on their age group.

Bible Verse: 1Corinthians 6:19-20

As you read out the verses to the children, ask them to do certain things for example when you mention your body they point at themselves and then they embrace themselves. Make it fun since they are very short verses.

DISCUSSION: (For whatever activity you mention, ask a facilitator or a child to show others how to do it)

Talk about:

  1. Bath everyday at least twice a day.
  2. Brush your teeth every morning and every after a meal.
  3. Cut off your hair if not comb it everyday
  4. Shave your private parts i.e. the armpits, etc.
  5. Wash your clothes and put on clean clothes everyday
  6. Clean your nails by cutting them off.
  7. For Girls- Clean yourselves every time you are in your Menstrual periods, a sanitary towel would be the best ideas to use and after use dispose it off in a pit latrine or if its washable- wash it as soon as you remove it and hang it in a convenient place to dry.
  8. 8.     Please add on what is not here and should be told the children.

MEMORY VERSE:  1Cor 6:19a “Don’t you know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit…”

WAY OF MEMORIZING: Ask the children to mention a body part and how to clean it and then they say out the memory verse, for example; Hair- combing it- 1Cor 6:19a Don’t you know that…..

CONCLUSION: Encourage the children to keep their bodies clean at all times.

Prayer time: Pray together with the children as the Spirit leads.

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