Children’s Church October Schedule:

November 6, 2022 Sweet Treats Where in the Bible: Genesis 41:41-56 Joseph is put in charge
Some people would say the best part of the fair is the FOOD. Sweet treats and deep-fried everything. After years of struggle, Joseph was finally experiencing the sweet life for himself. Pharaoh trusted Joseph to store food for his entire kingdom and Joseph relied on God to help him lead with wisdom and strength.
November 20, 2022 Ringtoss Game
Where in the Bible: Genesis 42 Joseph’s brothers go to Egypt.
At many fairs, you can find all kinds of games at the midway. Many of these games have a “trick,” that if you know what it is, it makes it easier to win. When famine hit the land, Joseph’s brothers went to Egypt for food. Since Joseph’s brothers did not recognize him, Joseph played a little “trick” on them in order to see if their hearts had changed since they sold him into slavery. However, Joseph had already chosen to do the right thing and give them the food they needed, even if their hearts hadn’t changed.

November 27, 2022 Roller Coaster
Where in the Bible: Genesis 44:1-34, 45:1-15 Joseph makes himself known
The roller coaster is full of ups and down and twist and turns. Joseph’s life was full of ups and downs, twists and turns, but he never lost his faith in God. In the end, Joseph was able to lead the people of Egypt, save many people from the famine, and even reunite with the brothers who once hated him.
