Elementary Kids Activities - October 2020

This month, we're going to look at events in the life of prophet Elijah, all of which are nothing short of amazing! Elijah’s ministry took place during turbulent times for God’s people – so much so that Elijah felt utterly alone at times. But God’s presence and power with Elijah throughout those times is undeniable. BIG IDEAS: God takes care of us, God knows what's best for us, God speaks to us, and in all, God does SO MANY amazing things!

"The Lord your God, who is present with you, is a great and awesome God."

- Deuteronomy 7:21 (NIV)
