Object lesson - Good Shepherd: ‘Who are you in the flock?’

A creative and interactive idea for your family service

The following idea is a creative and enjoyable way to look at this subject with both children and adults. You can use this for a family service. Explain that there are all sorts of different sheep and people in the Lord’s flock: obedient sheep, sheep with questions, a black sheep, lambs, stubborn goats, lost sheep, sacrificial lamb, shepherd's helper, deer, tourists 

Through the use of three assignments we are looking at who we are in the Lord's flock, we talk about this together and then we finish with a beautiful creative prayer idea. We have done this together with all the adults, teenagers and children in our small missional church and people were really touched by it.
