Scroll down to Lazarus Come Out Game- (just change it to Leper Come Out Game.) Explain to the students that no one wanted to be around lepers and that lepers had to hide from others. Jesus wants us to be kind to everyone so we have to find the leper to help him. Hide the leper under one of the cups, mix them up, and have each student try to find the leper. You can also have each student make their own leper out of a clothespin and give them 3 cups to play the game with each other or at home.
Introduction for all 3 games that are below- Sometimes, we may find ourselves in a situation where we are uncomfortable. There may come a time in our lives when we find ourselves in a situation that is truly hopeless like the leper. When that happens, where can we turn? How do we find hope in a hopeless situation? We can turn to Jesus. When the situation is hopeless, Jesus is our only hope.
Jesus Is Our Savior File Folder Game- Jesus is our rescuer and offers us a lifeline when we’re trapped in sin. How can we solve the problems in our life? Jesus is our savior and if we follow him, he will show us the way.
Making The Right Decisions Games- WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do?): Making the right decisions in life is hard to do, but if you let Jesus be your guide and think, “What Would Jesus Do?” it will make it a lot easier.
Moral Dilemmas Card Game: Why do problems come into our life? People face problems every day. Some are harder than others. There are many choices that the person can have to solve his/her problem, but which one is the best? What would Jesus want us to do?
