Introduce game: Who are the apostles? What are their names?

Simon Says Meets the Apostles
The idea of this game is just to teach the names of the Apostles. Assign the name of an Apostle to each kid. Then play Simon says, but only use the Apostle's name when talking to each student. And tell each student what Simon says individually. Example: Simon says the Apostle Simon Peter can take one step forward. Only the kid that is Simon Peter can move. The rest of the kids must wait for their turn.

Drive Out Elisha Game

Introduce game- What happened to Elisha after he only cured Naaman the Syrian captain of leprosy? When the people in the synagogue heard this, they were all filled with fury. They rose up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their town had been built, to hurl him down headlong.

Need- One empty 2-liter bottle, paper, crayons, tape, balled up paper

Directions- Have students draw and color Elisha, then cut him out so you can tape him on an empty 2-liter bottle. Remind the students that Elisha was driven out of town by the people in the synagogue. Tell the class "In Jesus' day, when people were caught committing certain crimes, the punishment may have been to get "stoned to death" by the people living in the village. Tell the students that we will recreate using our Elisha what it was like being driven out of town during Jesus’ time. Line up the students in one line and standing behind a chair. Tape each child’s Elisha on the 2-liter bottle when it is their turn. Have them throw their balled up paper at Elisha.
