K–2nd

Option 1: Trust God Tag

none

Assign one child to be “It.” Begin a game of tag. A child can avoid being tagged by kneeling and saying, “Trust God in all things.” If a child is tagged before completing the phrase, he or she becomes “It.” Continue playing as time allows. Remind children that no matter what they go through, they can always trust God.

Option 2: Over/Under Relay

two equal-sized balls

Gather supplies.

Divide the children into two teams, and have each team stand in a single file line. The goal of the game is to be the first team to get to the finish line on the opposite side of the room. Give the person in the front of the line a ball. Say “Go!” Have the first person on each team pass the ball over her head to the person behind her. The second person passes it under (or through) his legs. The children alternate passing methods with each person. Once the last person gets the ball, she runs to the front of the line to move the team toward the finish line. The first team to reach the finish line is the winner. Remind children we can trust God in the highs and lows of life.

3rd–5th

Option 1: Human Knot

none

Have the children stand shoulder to shoulder in a tight circle. Children should reach out and grab hands with two different people across the circle from them (not directly next to them). Have the children work together to untangle themselves without letting go of hands. When untangled, the group will be standing in a circle again. For groups over ten children, break into smaller circles and race to see which team can untangle first. Remind children that when life is tangled and messy, God can turn our struggles around just like he did with Job.

Option 2: Trust God Tag

none

Assign one child to be “It.” Begin a game of tag. A child can avoid being tagged by kneeling and saying, “Trust God in all things.” If a child is tagged before completing the phrase, he or she becomes “It.” Continue playing as time allows. Remind children that no matter what they go through, they can always trust God.
