2. Instruct players that they must blow the leaf towards the other end of the table or a spot on the table.
3. Each time a team gets to the end first that team gets a point.
4. The first team to get 5 points is the winner. Play as much as time allows. Explain: Boys and Girls we can not see wind, but we can see the results of the wind.  Just like we         can see the results of the wind blowing the leaves in the trees, but we can not actually see the wind.

2 BIBLE DISCOVERIES: Gospel & Truth - Isaiah 43, Job 38-29

 Game / Bible / Life Connection:    We See the Results of the Wind in the Game / We see the Result of God Working in the Bible / God Works in Your Life Even if You cannot See God

GOD: As the school bell rings, all the children of the primary school take their place in the daily assembly. The hall is silent. The Principal greets the children with a smile and
begins The Lord’s Prayer, “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name…”  The children repeat after her.

After the children sit on the red floor mat, she begins, “Children, do you know who our most Supreme Creator is?  It is God! God made our universe and all its wonderful stars and planets.

Just like a mason lays brick upon brick to build a wall, so also God created the world in order.”  Nathan, a class 5 student, smiles proudly as he thinks to himself, my father is a brick mason.  But who is my heavenly Father?  What is he like?

He is Everlasting: “Children, where do stars begin and end?”  The children remain silent.  No one is allowed to speak during assembly!  The Principal answers her own question.  “Just like the stars have no beginning and no end, GOD is ETERNAL and EVERLASTING!” (Romans 1:20)
He is Spirit: He doesn’t have a human body.  He is a spirit.
He is Almighty: “God is all-powerful.”  The Principal quotes, “It is by His word that the heavens, the earth, and all its creatures were made!” (Job 37:23)
He is All-knowing: “Your class teacher knows everything about the children in your class, doesn’t she?”  All the children nod in agreement.  “God knows everything about you!
He knows your past, your present, and your future!”  Little Mayank, who had recently done something naughty, squirms and shifts in his seat.  God knows?
He is Holy: “Being Holy is to be without sin.  Yet we sin every day.  We tell lies, we are naughty, we steal, we do wrong; but God never does any of these bad things.” Rev 14:15 says God alone is holy.  He is sinless.
He is Love: “Children, just like your parents love you, and you love your family, God loves you.
He is Merciful and Forgiving: God is a forgiving God.  He is a merciful God.”

Little Saanu thinks in her mind, I have not done my homework today, I hope teacher is merciful and forgiving too.  She quickly says a prayer in her heart.  Dear God, please make teacher forget she gave us homework.  Please God.  I will be a good girl tomorrow.  I promise.

Memory Verse:  “From eternity to eternity I am God.  No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.”   Isaiah 43:13

Leader, ask God to connect to the children’s minds, the children’s hearts, and in the prayer to connect to the children’s soul.

What made the balloon move? [Or “What made the leave move?”] Wind? Air? What is wind what is air, I can not see wind or air, how can I know there is wind and air?  (you can see the results, wind moves the balloon/leaf).

2. Bible
Today we learned about the one true God that created everything we see. Name some things God the creator made?

We can not see God, but we can see what He does in around the world and in the lives of people.  God the one true God is in the past and here today and will be here tomorrow, tell me some places we can find God? (here, everywhere, my heart)

Repeat after me: “God who created everything, God the one true god, God who created me, teach me to listen to you always to love you always, speak to me know *pause*.  Please give me courage to obey and share this truth.”
