1.  Introduce focus verse as you hold a Bible:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts. The whole world is full of His glory.” Isaiah 6:3

Holy means that God NEVER DOES ANYTHING WRONG.  He is different from us!  Do you ever do anything wrong?

2.  Read “Isn’t God Great!” by Amelia Rosato. (Or substitute one you have.) Focus on how God is different from us and how strong and mighty He is.
3.  Sing: Include hand motions; repeat three times.  “God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing my God cannot do!”

11:00 More Play. Snacks. Water, Juices.

11:15  Table Activity
Make a picture of a cross.  Use contrasting colors of construction paper. Glue stick onto paper.
Write: Jesus Loves Me.  Holy is the Lord.

11:30  Lunch. Clean hands.

11:45  Playtime


1. What does “holy” mean?  Are we holy?  We are different from God!  So He thought up a plan.  He sent Jesus as our Savior.

2.  Read “The Newborn King” p. 1-2. (If you substitute one, this focuses on Isaiah predicting the coming of Jesus).  Talk about Isaiah telling others about Jesus’s coming (more than 700 years before He came).

3.  Sing:  God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing my God cannot do! {Repeat three times.}
Jesus Loves Me
12:15-12:30   Play.  Organize take-home papers and lunch boxes.

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
