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."

Activity – Draw a line down the center of a piece of paper. Write “Wish” at the top of one column and “Need” at the top of the other. Write or draw pictures for each category. For example, “A new bike” is probably a Wish and “food and water” is a Need. Thank God for all we have, whether it’s a wish or a need.
