A 4-Week Series On Bringing Jesus Beyond The Walls Of The Church



ICEBREAKER: Walk, Open, Stretch (5 mins)

Be enthusiastic and use big, definitive movements.

Introduce these 3 actions to kids:
Walk: Walk on the spot with hands and legs moving

 Open: Clap hands together (with fingers pointing upwards) 
              and open them apart (like two swing doors opening)

Stretch: Stretch hands and legs outwards on each side as far as possible

Repeat these words and actions in order slowly, before picking up speed and mixing them up.

 Variation 1: Whoever gets the actions wrong sits down.

Variation 2: Say the words without doing the actions; kids have to do the correct action.

Variation 3: Say the words while doing the wrong actions; kids have to do the action that corresponds to the words. (Requires some practice and coordination for teachers)

End on a high note and an Awesome Clap.


We’ve been learning about arising and shining for Jesus. Let’s take a look at this story about a young man who went and did what God asked him to do.


[Every time the words “WALK”, “OPEN” and “STRETCH” are mentioned, get the children to do the accompanying actions (while sitting down).]

God asked Philip to go to a certain road in the desert.

He didn’t say why, or what, or who. He just said go. Philip didn’t argue or give excuses. He didn’t know what was going to happen. God said go, so He just WALKED.

Along came an Ethiopian eunuch, a very important man who served the queen of Ethiopia. He was sitting in a carriage and reading Scripture.

God’s Holy Spirit told Philip to “Go near and overtake the chariot.” Once again, Philip WALKED. Or rather … he ran!

The very important man was reading the prophet Isaiah. He looked a bit confused. So Philip OPENED his mouth and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?”

The very important man said, “Of course not. Can you help me?”

The prophet Isaiah was talking about a lamb being slaughtered. Who was this lamb? The lamb was Jesus.

So Philip OPENED his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.

As they went down the road, and they saw some water. The very important man said he believed that Jesus is the Son of God and wanted to be baptised. So Philip STRETCHED OUT his hand and baptised him. And the very important man was so happy to believe in Jesus. And when he back to his country, he brought the good news about Jesus to all his countrymen there.

Be enthusiastic and use big, definitive movements.


Philip was an ordinary person, just like you and me.

He did not have super powers. He may not have been super wise. He may not have super ability.

But he had feet to WALK.

He had a mouth to OPEN and speak.

He had hands to STRETCH out

And He had God’s Holy Spirit — who has all the power, wisdom, ability and everything needed.

When we have God’s Holy Spirit, He can use our feet, our mouth and our hands to tell everyone about Jesus.

All we need to do is to listen to God, and to WALK, OPEN and STRETCH. He will do the rest.



You may do this as a whole class, or in a close huddle. Ask the children to share their prayer needs.

Lead them to pray using the T-A-D guide, and get them to repeat after you.

Sample prayer:

Dear God,

T: Thank You for being our good and loving Daddy. Thank you for loving all of us very much, and for making such a wonderful morning for us to come and worship You together.

A:  Today we learnt that we can call on You anytime. We can talk to You about our day. We can tell You our problems and worries.

[Bring up some of the children’s prayer needs. For older kids, you can ask different ones to pray for their friends’ needs.]

D: We speak your Lordship over the situation. We declare Your healing over … We declare that Jesus

has already taken this sickness on the cross … We declare that You can change things around and work everything for our good!

Thank You, God. We pray all these in Jesus’ name, Amen.


Any related craft with the words WALK, OPEN and STRETCH.
