1 GAME: Cats and Mice

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  In the Game Every Person has Purpose / In the Bible God Created Everything for a Purpose / In your Life God Created You for a Purpose

  1. Announce that we are going to play a game we call “Cats and Mice”.
    2. Show Players the boundaries that the game will be played in.
    3. Pick one Player to be a “Cat.” Stand the “Cat” in the middle of the area.
    4. The rest of the Players are “Mice.” Have them stand on one side of the area.
    5. The object of the game is for the “Mice” to get across the area without getting caught (tagged) by the “Cat.”
    6. Call out loudly “Cat, ready?” “Mice, ready?” “Go!”
    7. The “Mice” run from one side to the other then stop at the other side.
    8. If a “Mouse” is caught (tagged), then that Player also becomes a “Cat.”
    9. Now, with more “Cats” in the middle, call out “Cats, ready?” “Mice, ready?” “Go!”
    10. “Mice” stop once they have crossed the area and wait until the leader calls out “Cats, ready?” “Mice, ready?” “Go!” This continues until only one “Mouse” is left.
    11. The last Player left or to get caught is the first “Cat” for the next game.

     

     The game will work perfectly every round.

2 BIBLE DISCOVERIES: Gospel & Truth - Genesis 1-2

 Game / Bible / Life Connection:    In the Game Every Person has Purpose / In the Bible God Created Everything for a Purpose / In your Life God Created You for a Purpose

Ammu and Chinna: After a beautiful rain from the heavens, the earth was moist and soft. It smelled good! Chinna, all of four years, ran to play in the wet mud in front of his hut and started to make little chapathis. He was pleased. He hummed a hymn his mother often sang; “O’ Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the works thy hands have made… “

Chinna’s mother, Ammu, joyously joined in and sat in the mud alongside him. She loved her son just as she loved God, for her son was created in His image.

Praise God!! She began to make little mud balls telling Chinna how God created the heavens and the earth and all around them in just six days!  She said, “In the beginning there was nothing! There was darkness and emptiness.” Chinna, who began to feel hungry thought, “Hmm… my tummy too feels dark and empty!” But he was a good boy, so he listened to the story of THE BEGINNING with great attention. His mother had told him this story many times before.

(Genesis Chapters 1 – 2)
Day One: God said, “Let there be light!” and there was light!  Then Chinna jumped in a puddle and yelled,
Day Two: God made the SKY and WATER!  THANK YOU GOD!  China’s mother clapped her muddy hands with joy and hugged her son. He was so clever!  He proudly went on…
Day Three: LAND and SEA
Day Four: SUN, MOON, and STARS!
Day Five? He had forgotten. “What did He make on day five, Ammu?”
Day Five: “FISH AND BIRDS” she said, pretending to swim in water and fly in the air! Chinna loved when his mother was playful, but he knew that soon she would scrub him by the well to make him squeaky clean again. He hated bath time. The soap always burned his eyes. Rubbing his eyes with his muddy hands, he growled…
Day Six: ANIMALS!
He made ADAM and EVE too, Ammu added, quoting Gen 2:7, “The LORD God formed man from dust… breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” Saying so, she blew the grainy mud off Chinna’s eyes. She then tickled his ribs, and as Chinna giggled uncontrollably, she said, “God made EVE, out of the rib of the man, Adam (Gen. 2:22).
Day Seven: “God rested.” Chinna said calmly. He knew, the end of the story meant burning soapy eyes!  “Ammu, God did not make soap. That is why I don’t like it. I like everything else that God made and I will respect all his creations!” Saying so, he quickly slipped out of Ammu’s arms and ran into the fields laughing.
