Touched by Love

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Object Suggested:See examples in text of lesson.

You are blessed with five senses. You gather information by seeing with your eyes, by hearing with your ears, by tasting with your tongue and mouth, by smelling with your nose, and by using your hands to touch things.

Today let’s talk about our sense of touch. We learn a lot by touching things. Close your eyes and feel the object I put into your hands. Tell me what you know about the object without looking at it. (Use various children to demonstrate the idea.)

A piece of satin cloth or binding – This object feels soft and smooth.

• A pencil – This object is long and thin, sharp at one end, an eraser at the other end.

• An apple – This object is hard and round. It has a stem.

• An ice cube – This object is cold and wet.

• A thistle – Be careful – this object is sharp and hurtful.

A woman in the Bible, who had been sick for twelve years, heard about Jesus and felt that if she could just touch his clothes she would be cured…

MR BRAGG’S LIBRARY (5:12) – Mr. Bragg reads The Teddy Bear by David McPhail. When a little boy’s favorite teddy bear is left behind on a road trip, it finds itself a new life, with a new owner. But what will happen when the little boy and the teddy bear come face to face once again?

The Touch of Faith

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Objects Suggested: A favorite blanket or a teddy bear. Stones, shells, feathers, leaves or tree bark.

Kids like to touch things don’t they? And often we hear, “Don’t touch that. It will break.” Or, “Put that down. Your hands are dirty.”

Yes, some things are meant to be looked at and not touched. Other things are very touchable – give comfort and help us learn.

Some of you may have a favorite blanket that you like to touch as you go to sleep. Perhaps you have a teddy bear that feels soft and cuddly. The beloved bear makes you feel safe and warm.

You learn more about the world around you by touching such things as stones, shells, feathers, leaves, and the bark of trees. You may want to touch and handle these items I’ve brought along today.

A story in the Bible teaches us about touch and faith. A woman, who had been ill for twelve years, heard about Jesus, came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak. She said, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be made well” (5:28)…

Healing

By Dr. Dan Wuori

 

Have you ever been very sick? Even if it doesn’t happen very often, most everyone gets sick sooner or later.

There’s nothing much worse than being sick – but some illnesses are much better to have than others. Certain things can make you feel awfully bad – and yet if you take the right medicine you can feel much better very quickly. They have a terrific healing power.

This week’s gospel story is about a sick girl that Jesus makes well. Just like last week he performs a miracle and heals her from a terrible illness.

Whenever I read a story about Jesus making someone well, I can’t help but think about the ways that he sometimes does the same for me…

BBC (5:10) – SICK DAY: In this episode, Bella has a sick day but should Joe also have a day off? Watch to find out!
GOSPEL

Only Believe

Objects suggested:A bottle of over-the-counter medicine (aspirin, etc)

If you were sick, what would your parents do? If you just had a tummy ache or a headache, they might give you some medicine that they could buy from the drug store and wait to see if it would make you feel better. But what if you didn’t get better? What if you were so sick that your parents thought you might die? What would they do then? They would take you to the doctor right away! They would do everything possible to help you get well.

Today, our Bible story is about a man named Jairus. Jairus had a daughter who was very ill. In fact, he was certain that she was going to die and he would have done anything in his power to help her get well. Jairus was a ruler in the temple and he had heard about how Jesus had been healing many people, so when he saw Jesus, he ran to meet him right away. He fell at the feet of Jesus. “My daughter is sick and is about to die,” he said. “Please come and place your hands on her; heal her so she can live.”

What did Jesus do? Did he say, “Give the girl two aspirin and if she isn’t better by morning, give me a call?” Of course not! Jesus immediately began walking with Jairus toward his house so that he could heal the girl…

Jesus Heals the Woman with a Hemorrhage

Sunday Connection (Grades 4-6)

Watching other people suffer when they are sick can leave us feeling helpless. Our prayer for those who are sick is a way for us to ask for Jesus’ healing presence and to participate in the Church’s ministry to those who are sick.

Materials Needed
• None

EXCERPT: Ask the children to recall a time when they were worried about something, perhaps about a test at school, something that happened to a friend, or a news story on TV or radio.

  1. Tell the children to think about a time when they were sick. Ask: When you were sick, did you have any special needs? If so, what were they? What did other people do to help you feel better? (Accept all reasonable answers.)

  2. Ask: Have you ever helped take care of someone who was sick? What does it feel like to be with someone who is sick? (Accept all reasonable answers.)

  3. Say: We are fortunate to have people who care for us when we are sick. Caring for people who are sick can be very rewarding, especially when we help them feel more comfortable. But it can also be discouraging because sometimes there seems to be little we can do to help them feel better.

  4. Say: Today’s Gospel tells the story of a father who felt helpless because his daughter was sick…

Jesus Raises Jairus’ Daughter

Stories of healing and “rewarded” faith are exciting and wonderful to read about. We know that Jesus can and will do anything. However, it is also important to note for children that God does not always provide physical healing in this lifetime. Prayers might be answered with “no” or “wait”, despite hope and faith. Yet we know that Jesus heals our hearts by providing redemption from sin. No matter what happens this side of Heaven, we can be confident that He has saved us and that we will one day be with Him forever.

This lesson was prepared by Kristin Schmidt, who serves at the Epiphany Lutheran Church in Castle Rock, CO. She has shared her teaching gifts through Ministry-To-Children since 2014 and now serves as lead curriculum writer.

Jesus Heals the Woman with a Hemorrhage

Sunday Connection (Grades 7-8)

Caring for the sick is an important way that Christians follow Jesus’ example. With faith in Jesus’ power to heal, we pray for those who are sick and for all those who care for them.

Materials Needed
• None

EXCERPT:

  1. Ask the young people to name 10 careers in the medical profession (for example, doctor, nurse, x-ray technician, pharmacist). Write these on the board and ask the young people to describe how people in each profession contribute to the care of those who are sick.

  2. Ask the young people to recall a time when they helped care for someone who was sick. Ask: What feelings did you have as you helped to care for this person? (Accept all reasonable answers.) Observe that caring for people who are sick is both rewarding and challenging.

  3. Say: Today’s Gospel tells the story of a father who sought Jesus’ help because his daughter was very sick. Let’s listen carefully to this Gospel…
