Refugees in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry
In our world today, there are hundreds of millions of people who are forced to flee their homes, whether to escape conflict, famine, drought, or the impacts of climate change.
As Christians, it's important to reflect on what the Bible teaches us about how God views refugees and how we can respond to their needs with love and compassion.
The Bible contains many stories of people who were forced to flee their homes, including the Israelites fleeing from Egypt, Ruth and Naomi seeking refuge in a foreign land, and Jesus himself being a refugee in Egypt as a child.
These stories offer powerful examples of the need to care for those who are forced to leave their homes and seek refuge elsewhere.
On this page, you will find a wide range of creative ideas, resources, and activities related to the theme of refugees. These resources can be used in your children's work, children's church, Sunday school, or Christian primary school.
Activities can include lessons on biblical stories of refugees, discussions on the challenges faced by refugees today, and exercises on how to show love and compassion towards those in need.
By emphasizing the theme of refugees, children can learn about the importance of caring for those who are marginalized and how to live out this value in their daily lives.
