Object lesson - Philippians: ‘Mission Possible’

Small act of kindness go a long way...

In Philippians 2: 4 Paul writes about the importance of looking out for one another's interests, not just our own. Paul says that we shouldn’t think only of ourselves but also of others. Let’s make this practical straight away. 

Mission Possible creative activity about Bible book Philippians 2 for Sunday school lesson youth ministry Bible lesson childrens ministry school assembly

This is a fun creative activity on Philippians 2 about taking care of others. It will help the children in your Sunday school lesson, youth ministry, Bible lesson, children’s church or children’s ministry to reflect on this powerful Bible passage.

What do you do:

Ask the children what they can do to look out for one another's interests, not just our own.

If you all eat or drink together after your programme or service, ask the children to think about small things they could do for someone else.

For example, asking someone what they would like to drink, and fetching it for them. Or clearing up someone’s plate.

Get them to think about all the things they could do to care for someone else in that situation.

Think together if there is anyone in your church who would appreciate some extra care and attention. Perhaps someone who is in hospital, or who is ill.

You could make a cheerful video message for them, sing a song for them and record it, or make a huge card together.
