Game - Zechariah meets Gabriel: I think God is really special because…..


Use this fun game to teach about the story of the priest Zachariah meeting the angel Gabriel

Elisabeth had been given the cold shoulder for years because she was unable to have children. People thought that she wasn’t worth anything anymore. But she is so thankful! ‘The Lord has helped me to become pregnant. He is so good to me.’

Elisabeth thought that God was really special because he had helped her to become pregnant even when she was old. Why do you think God is really special?

This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on Zechariah meeting the angel Gabriel, as part of our series for advent and Christmas.

I think God is really special because a fun game about the Bible story of Zacharias meeting the angel Gabriel in the temple

 

What do you need:

- A4 paper
- pens
- music

What to do:


Tell the children:

Elisabeth had been given the cold shoulder for years because she was unable to have children. People thought that she wasn’t worth anything anymore. But she is so thankful!
‘The Lord has helped me to become pregnant. He is so good to me.’
Elisabeth thought that God was really special because he had helped her to become pregnant even when she was old.

Ask the children:

Why do you think God is really special?

Write all the answers on separate pieces of paper and spread them on the floor in the room. Play some music and tell the children to walk round the room. When the music stops they have to pick up one of the pieces of paper and read out what is written on it. Then you repeat this, but each time remove one of the pieces of paper – the child who doesn’t pick one up when the music stops is out.
By young children you could read the text aloud for them.

At the end of the game give each child one of the texts, and finish with a time of group prayer, asking the children to thank God for what is written on their piece of paper.
