Last week in Sunday School, we heard the story of Brave Queen Esther.
In case you want to sing it at home, our welcome song went like this: (tune: "good-night ladies") Hello, [Anna]; hello [Vera],
Hello, [Leto]; I'm glad that you are here.
We talk about times they've been brave by asking, when were you afraid? When were you brave? What helped you be brave? In the dark, maybe a flashlight, what about a prayer?
My God is so big, so strong and so mighty there's nothing my God cannot do
Jesus loves me
Away in a manger
Here is the story of Esther (abbreviated version as told to the kids): Esther was married to the King, who was very powerful and scary. Esther's cousin, Mordechai, told her that one of the King's friends, Haman, wanted to hurt her people. She needed to be brave and ask the King to save her people. She was afraid, but prayed to God and He helped her save her people.
As the craft, we put together a coloring book of pictures from the story.
