Scripture: Judges 4-5
- Students will review the story of Deborah.
- Students will learn how to have faith in God in tough situations.
- Students will learn how to share their faith.
Guiding Questions: How can students share their faith in day to day life?
Materials: Paper, pencil
Procedure: Review the story of Deborah focusing on how God used her to lead Israel and defeat Sisera. Emphasize that it was unusual for a woman to lead and her faith in God meant that she gained the honor instead of Barak because he needed her help. Explain that Jael did not go to the front lines and fight the battle. When she had an opportunity to help God’s people where she lived, she did it. Hopefully, students will never live in a war zone, but they can help God everyday by serving others and sharing their faith with others.
Introduce the service project. Help students brainstorm ways they can serve others and share their faith every day. Challenge the students to share their faith in one of the ways that they have brainstormed and be ready to share at the next class.
Additional Questions: How can students share their faith with others?
Supplemental Activities: Have the students create encouraging cards for law enforcement, firefighters, etc. Have students deliver the cards and discuss with students how they can share their faith by encouraging others.
