WATOTO CHILDREN’S NEIGHBOURHOOD CELL GUIDE FOR WEEK ENDING 27 July 2019

Icebreaker: Ask the children to pair up in groups of two and do animal sounds of animals that went into Noah’s Ark. Make it fun and organised for every sound to be reflected in the game.

Good reports: Ask the children to exercise “Each one Reach one” by welcoming each other with a hand shake or a hug, get involved to make it interesting. Always encourage the children to give testimonies if any and share yours as well.  

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

THEME: HE STILL LOVES US

TOPIC: GOD MAKES A PROMISE

TEXT: Genesis 6:5-22

OBJECTIVE: By the end of cell, Children will learn that God hates and punishes sin but He still loves us by looking for a way to bring us back to himself. 

Bible Verse: Genesis 6:5-22; 7:1-24 (Please summarize these scriptures in your own words before you meet with the children for simplicity)

Tell the story in an animated style, please make it fun and interesting. You could ask them to do actions or sounds of different phrases that you are mentioning for example; the flood – and then children come together as if there is congestion etc.

Life Application:

  1. When God become sad after people sinning, what did he ask Noah to do?
  2. What are some of the bad things we do that make God sad?
  3. What gift does God give us when we do good things/obey Him?
  4. What can we do to make God happy after we have sinned against Him? 

Memory Verse: Romans 6:23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life is Christ Jesus our Lord.

Way of Memorizing: BE CREATIVE

Conclusion: This is what sin does to God. Sin is disobeying God. It makes God very sad when He looks at you. God loves us but He hates sin and punishes sin. But even though He does that, to those who obey Him like Noah, He protects them. 

Prayer Time: Lead the children appropriately in a closing prayer. 

Share the Vision: Encourage the children to come with one more person or two every time they come for cell.
