Moses trusted God; he just wasn’t sure about himself, the Israelites, or Pharaoh. This week we will be teaching the children about Moses and Aaron traveling back to Egypt after God gives Moses three supernatural signs to confirm his call by God before his own people: Moses’ staff becoming a snake, Moses’ hand becoming leprous, and water becoming blood. In Exodus 6, God reaffirms His covenant with His people in the gracious words of verse 7, “I will take you to be my people, and I will be your God,’ reminding us that God never forgets His people and He always keeps His promises to us. We find the almost exact same words in the New Covenant promise of Ezekiel 36, “You shall be my people, and I will be your God.”
Sunday School Craft
Children love to retell the stories they hear from the Bible, so I like to make Bible figures in my graphic software. You are welcome to use these in your classroom or at home. Although I’ve named these Moses and Aaron, they could be used for many different people that you find in your lessons. I’ve also included a staff and snake. It’s helpful to glue the figures on popsicle sticks and allow the children to act the story out as they hold the figures in their hands. Young children are visual learners, so this craft goes a long way in helping them to remember what they’ve learned from the Scriptures.
