Review of prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Isaiah told about the birth of someone very special over 700 years before it really happened! Jeremiah was very young and still brave to give the warning to the people to stop worshipping fake Gods. Ezekiel was so brave to eat the scroll and go to The Valley of the Bones. What did God ask Ezekiel to do to the bones? Talk to them, and then what did God tell him to do? Breathe on the bones. What happened after Ezekiel breathed on the bones? They came to life!!!! And that was God’s message of hope, God would bring his people back to life again and they would be able to return to their home. Whisper around the circle or Simon says. (Lets be special messengers from God! God says tell the people, freeze bones! etc . ) Daniel song. CIRCLE TIME: (AFTER MUSIC) -Items to have for Circle Time: Bible, Class Stuffed Animal.

Amen -Items to have for Circle Time: Bible, Class Stuffed Animal. -Have the children sit together in a circle. - Read story that is in basket . Even though the king made a new rule that did not let people pray or praise God, Daniel was so brave and said I only listen and obey one God and I pray to only one God, not the king! So he kept on praying on his knees 3x a day. The king tested Daniel’s faithfulness to God by throwing him in the lion’s den. May your God help you now, Daniel! Can you imagine how scary that would be to be in a cage with a bunch of lions? And God is so powerful he shut those lions mouths right up so they wouldn’t bite Daniel.
