Elisha & the Bad Water

1. HOOK: Change!

  • Experiment:  prepare  frozen  concentrated  grape  juice  in  a  pitcher  or  other  container;
  • Kids:   look   at   this   liquid.   It’s   quite   yummy.   Taste   and   see.   What   colour   is   it?     What   happens   if   I   put   in   something   else?
    >>  Pour   some   lemon   juice   into   the   grape   juice   and   see   the   purple   juice   turn   into   another  colour  (red).
  • Oh  it  has  turned  into  something  different.  I  dare  not  drink  it  anymore.  It  may  give  me   a  tummy  ache.  That’s  why  we  should  not  simply  mix  stuff  together  as  it  may  turn  into   something  bad.
  • Hmm   …   let’s   see   what   happens   if   I   add   some   magic   powder   in.
    >>  Add  some  baking  soda  to  the  red-­‐coloured  juice  and  see  it  turn  back  to  purple.
  • Oh  look!  It’s  gone  back  to  normal!  And  is  as  good  as  ever!
  • Today  we  continue  our  story  with  Elisha  and  some  water  that  had  turned  bad.

2. STORY: Elisha & the Bad Water (2 Kings 2:19-22)

  • In  the  first  story,  the  town  was  suffering  because  of  bad  water.  Because  of  the  bad   water,  the  land  was  unproductive  …  nothing  could  grow  well,  animals  were  dying.   When  the  people  asked  Elisha  for  help,  Elisha  asked  for  a  new  bowl.  He  took  the   bowl,  put  salt  into  it,  and  poured  the  salt  into  the  river,  declaring  the  Lord’s  healing   over  it.  And  the  water  became  pure!
  • Water  represents  the  Word  of  God  (Eph  5:26).  Sometimes  though,  the  Word  of  God   is  not  taught  correctly.  There  is  mixture  of  the  Old  Covenant  and  the  New  Covenant,   the  Law  and  the  Good  News  about  Jesus.  One  day  we  will  think  that  God  is  good  and   loves  us  so  much.  Another  day  we  think  that  He  is  angry  with  us  and  wants  to  punish   us.  This  ding-­‐dong  will  make  it  hard  for  us  to  grow  well  in  our  relationship  with  God.
  • But  just  as  Elisha  asked  for  a  new  bowl,  Jesus  came  to  give  us  a  New  Covenant.
  • Elisha  asked  for  salt  to  be  put  into  the  bowl.  In  the  Old  Testament,  all  the  offerings  to   God  had  to  be  sprinkled  with  salt  before  being  burnt  (Lev  2:13;  Ezekiel  43:24).  It  is  a   picture  of  the  perfect  offering  –  holy  and  acceptable  before  God.  Jesus  is  our  perfect   offering.  He  is  perfectly  holy  and  acceptable  to  the  Father.  He  fulfilled  all  the   requirements  and  penalties  of  the  Law  on  our  behalf.
  • When  we  read  God’s  word  in  the  New  Covenant,  we  see  Jesus’  finished  work  on  the   Cross.  We  are  washed  and  made  clean.  We  can  grow  and  be  fruitful!
  • God  declared  through  Elisha,“I  have  healed  this  water.  Never  again  will  it  cause   death  or  make  the  land  unproductive.”  Because  of  Jesus,  God  has  said  that  He  no   longer  counts  our  sins  against  us!  (Rom  4:7-­‐8)  And  that  He  has  sworn  not  to  be  angry   with  us  and  never  to  punish  us  again  (Isaiah  54:9).
  • Thank  you  Jesus!
  • Memory  Verse:  <use  activity/game  to  help  kids  memorise  Rom  4:7-­8  or  Isaiah  54:9>

1. HOOK: Pass the baton

  • Play any simple relay game where 2 teams compete against each other. Kids race to complete a task or run a course and then pass the baton to their teammates who will take their turn. Winner is team that finishes task/course first.
  • Note: Class management is very important. Get helpers/parents to assist in getting kids in line etc fast.
  • Have you ever watched the Olympics on TV?  When runners are in a relay race, each runner goes all the way around the track and then hands off a stick (or baton)— show pix — to the next runner.  Then that runner takes it on the next part of the race and hands it off again.
  • Today we look at how Elijah the prophet passed the baton to Elisha.
  • Relay Ideas #1 or #2

2. REVIEW: Kings & Prophets of Israel

tNCC Children Church: Elijah & Elisha 2 Kings 2:7-12                                            May 12, 2013
  • Kings in grey are not so important — included to show timeline and framework.Key thing is for kids to know that we were looking at Jehoshaphat and Joash (Kings of Judah) last month. Now we’re heading back to the Northern Kingdom (Israel) and following the story of Elisha the Prophet.

3. LESSON: Elijah & Elisha (2 Kings 2:7-12)

elijah elisha
  • We’ve learned about Elijah, who was the prophet during King Ahab’s time. He did many awesome things including raising the widow’s son to life and calling down fire from heaven.
  • After defeating the prophets of Baal, Elijah went and found Elisha, who was plowing the fields. Elijah threw his cloak over Elisha, a symbol of passing the baton, and Elisha left everything and followed him as his servant.
  • One day, Elijah knew God was going to take him back to heaven. He wanted to be alone, but Elisha begged him to let him come along.  Elisha loved Elijah and he wanted to be with him no matter what happened.
  • Elijah wrapped his mantle together and struck the waters of the Jordan River and they parted, and then they walked over on dry ground.  Fifty sons of the prophets were standing afar off and saw this happen.
  • Before he left, Elijah asked Elisha if he had any last requests, “What do you want from me?”
  • Elisha asked for a special blessing (2 Kings 2:9).  He wanted two times the anointing of God that was upon Elijah. Elijah told him that if he saw God take him then he would get his wish.
  • And guess what happen next! Suddenly, horses of fire and a chariot of fire come down from the sky in a whirlwind.  It passed between them and took Elijah off to heaven!  Wow!  Can you imagine seeing the wind rushing around and a heavenly horse and chariot that was so shiny it sparkled like fire? It didn’t burn Elijah.  It came to pick him up.
  • Elijah dropped his mantle as he was whisked away up in the air.  Elisha picked it up and became the next great prophet of Israel.
  • Elisha went on to perform many mighty works also. In fact, some people say he performed twice as many miracles as Elijah because he had double the anointing! In the weeks to come, we will look at some of Elisha’s many miracles.
  • Do you know that Jesus also performed many miracles here on earth? He cast out demons, calmed the seas, fed thousands of people, raised the dead etc.
  • But what’s more amazing is that Jesus told His disciples that if they believed in Him and His works, “they will do even greater things than these. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (John 14:12, 14)
  • Can you imagine doing greater works than Jesus? How is it possible? When Jesus died for us and rose from the dead, He went back to heaven and sent us His Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit is in us today, and it has all of Jesus’ anointing and power so that we can do great and marvellous things today in His name! Amen!


  • Mother’s Day craft/card: Thank you mom for all you’ve done for me

Count on His Love

1. Icebreaker:Musical statues  
 2. Hook:Tallest, longest, fastest
  • Have a simple multiple-choice quiz where kids get to guess which is the tallest mountain, longest river and fastest animal etc. Fun and educational. 
  • In life, we are always trying compare things. How tall we are. How much money we have. How many As we get. The one thing that is bigger and greater than everything is else is Jesus’ love for us.
3. Lesson: We can depend on Jesus because we can count on His love
  • This camp’s theme is “Counting on Jesus”. We can count on Jesus because we know how much He loves us. When we know how much He loves us, we know He will never let us go. He will never fail us or forsake us. 
  • Ephesians 3:17-18And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 
  • If we had to measure Christ’s love for us, we’ll have to look at its:
    • Width:God’s love extends to every people, every nation, every tribe
    • Length:From eternity to eternity; without  beginning or end 
    • Height: From God’s throne above, where Jesus is seated on the right hand
    • Depth:Jesus emptied himself, took on the form of a servant, humbled Himself and became obedient  to death on the cross
  • The CROSS is the picture of the width, length, height and depth of Christ’s love for us.
  • Romans 8:31-39
  • Conclusion: You can count on Jesus’ love for us
