Over the next few weeks we will continue to study Ruth in our elementary age Sunday school classes. We will focus on loyalty and friendship, God gives us friends so we can support and love each other. Sometimes those friendships change but God’s commitment to us never changes. Our memory verse will be Ruth 1:16“Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” If you would like to reinforce the lesson at home you can try one of these two activities.
Activity: Follow the Leader
Play “Follow the Leader” with the children
Try to have different children be the leader
Talk to the children about following Godly leaders and not just following anyone
Activity: Bible Verse Memorization
“Where you go I’ll go. Your God will be my God.” Ruth 1:16
Where you go: point to someone else
I’ll go: point to yourself
Your God will be: point to the ceiling
My God: point to yourself
Ruth 1: hold up 1 finger
16: hold up 10 fingers and then 6 fingers
Do this a few times with the children. Make it fun for them to do the motions and say the words. Involving them in active learning is essential for memorization.
