Now that Fall is in the air, it’s the perfect time to have a Fun Sunday centered around Fall.
Theme: Falling for God
Verse: Matthew 16:25 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
Possible Object Lessons:
Leaves: Talk about how leaves fall to the ground when Autumn comes. They don’t worry about being destroyed. They sacrifice themselves so the tree can survive the winter and the ground can be protected. In the same way, God wants us to fall for Him and not worry about the consequences. When the leaves prepare to fall, they turn colors and become prettier than they were before. When we fall for God, our lives will become more meaningful than they ever were before.
Falling in Love: Many people talk about falling in love. It means they have feeling for another person. But falling in love shouldn’t only be an emotion. When two people fall in love and get married, they make a commitment to be there for each other for the rest of their lives. They sacrifice their individual lives for each other. God wants us to fall in love with Him the same way.
Missionary Talk: This would be a good time to talk about missionaries and what they have sacrificed because of their commitment to God. You can use missionaries you church supports or find something at one of the following sites:
Games and Activities:
Have a hay ride.
Set up carnival games and bouncers.
Leaf Jump: Rake leaves in piles and have children jump in them.
Snacks: Fall is a great time for apple cider and roasting hot dogs over a bon fire.
