Guiding Question: How can students learn what nouns and verbs are related to cleaning?
Materials: Various cleaning supplies such as a mop, sponge, wipes, spray, etc.
Procedure: Review the story of Joash from the scriptures above. Remind students that Joash was godly as long as Jehoiada was alive. He didn’t make his faith his own though so when Jehoiada died, Joash gradually moved farther and farther from God. Explain to the students that it is important to have their own faith so that they can learn from God, worship God, and experience a personal relationship with God.
