AS KIDS ARRIVE PRIOR TO THE LESSON:
Welcome Teacher/Trainers, Trainers and students.
Give the children the peanuts and the ‘Gospel Peanut in a
Nutshell’ cut into strips, give each child a strip along and
a roasted peanut, carefully open the shell and remove the nut, roll
the strip up so it can fit into the nutshell. Practice unrolling
it and saying the ‘Gospel Peanut in a Nutshell’ as they
share their faith
1. GUESSING GAMES: (10 minutes) Hide and
Conceal a peanut in one hand and get the children guess which hand
you have hidden the peanut. Call out all that think the left hand
or those that think its in the right hand, eliminate the incorrect
side. Start again until there is only one child left who gets the
2. TEAM GAMES: (10 minutes) Fishy Fishy:

of the room. Have each team tightly hold hands.
Each team calls out Fishy fishy Ready … Get Set send ________
(children choose a name of a child from the opposite team) to break
The child that is named runs to the other team and tries to break
through their joined hands. If the child breaks through then they
take an opponent back to their side. If they can’t break through
they must join the other team.
3. ACTIVE PRAISE CHORUS: (10 minutes)
Heaven is a free gift (I ain't gonna grieve my Lord no more.)
(Use music video, lyrics and visual aids to review)
4. INTIMATE WORSHIP: (5 minutes)
Turn your eyes upon Jesus (See music song sheet in Visual Aid Manual)
Prayer: Heavenly Father, as we
pause and look back over the last few weeks we ask Holy Spirit you
will bring all that we have been taught back to our remembrance.
Give us the courage to share our faith with all that you place in
our path because once our lives were in a mess now we have a message.
Thank you Jesus. Amen

Sword (Give out the Sword Play Tracks one for each child)
Ready…Swords up… 1 Peter 2:2… CHARGE!
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the
word of their testimony; (Revelation 12:11a)
c) Teaching the Lesson (15 minutes)
Remember when we started this series we went to the FunTastic Fun
Fair where you will be introduced to the Scriptures that we have
being going over and over each week.
Has anyone got their Treasure Map have you been
able to share your Faith in Jesus.
You learnt God’s Word was powerful, true and
a light to their path. (Demonstrate with a torch)
Who can remember The Journey of Life verse: Proverbs
3:5 and 6 (Use Visual aid)
Over the weeks we have learnt a lot about fishing.
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said,
“and I will send you out to fish for people.”
THE GOSPEL PLAN: (Use Wiggly
fingers from Session 4)
Whenever you start sharing the Gospel Plan you should
begin with Heaven
HEAVEN is a free gift It is not something you work
for or deserve
The Bible says “For the wages of sin is
death; but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ
our Lord” (Romans 6:23 KJV)
Optional: The Bridge (See Visual
Aid Manual for demo and Bridge Track)
The Bible also says, “For it is by grace
you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast”
So what stops us from getting
this gift? SIN
We all sin, and we cannot save ourselves.
The Bible says … “For all have sinned
and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Jesus said ... “Be perfect, therefore,
as your Heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew
THERE MUST BE A DIFFERENT
WAY – GOD’S WAY
God is LOVING
But God is also JUST (fair) and must punish sin.
The Bible says, “God is love”
(1 John 4:8b);
But the Bible also says, “(He)
will by no means clear the guilty” (Exodus 34:7b)
Do you see the problem?
God solved this problem by sending His son Jesus
Our ring finger reminds us that God so loved us
He sent His Son - Jesus
The Bible says, "For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him
will not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16
The little fingers reminds us we only need a small
amount of Faith as small as a small seed to grow into a mighty big
tree. Saving Faith is not just knowing about God in your head....
Saving Faith is not temporary , Saving Faith is trusting in Jesus
ALONE for our eternal life.
Jesus said “Here I am! I stand at the
door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will
come in.” (Rev 3:20)
The Bible says,
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will
be saved …” (Acts 16:31)
Optional: The Jesus Cross –
God’s Son (See Visual Aid Manual, stick front and back together)
HOW DO WE GET THIS GIFT OF
ETERNAL LIFE? - BY FAITH!
NOW IT’S TIME TO GROW
Bring out the ‘On the right track’ banner
and get the children recite the order to share the Gospel.
Who has their Passport to Heaven? (Get a volunteer
come out and demonstrate the Passport)
Remember we learnt about Diamonds? Think for a moment
about diamonds. They are one of the most precious items in creation.
They are rare, beautiful and highly prized. They are nothing compared
to how God values YOU.
