This week the kids heard the story of Jonah. When God called Jonah to preach to the citizens of Ninevah, he refused and tried to run away. But no matter where Jonah tried to hide, God found him. Even when Jonah boarded a ship, and God sent a whale to swallow him up, Jonah couldn't escape from God. To demonstrate this, Jonah (who looked very much like a stuffed Pink Panther doll) tried to hide all around the classroom. But no matter where he went, the kids could find him. Even inside the belly of the whale (a tarp opened up inside the room).
Songs we sang: Who's the King of the Jungle, If I were a Butterfly
Next week (3/20/2011): The Walls of Jericho (Joshua 6)
