This week’s destination: LIVING WATER

MATERIALS: Empty bottles of water enough for each child, long piece of paper, coloured markers. Fill empty water bottles with pebbles, beads for second game.

AS KIDS ARRIVE PRIOR TO THE LESSON:
Welcome Teacher, Trainers and students. Give each child an empty bottle of water and give them a long piece of paper and markers to write and decorate the bottle with JESUS GIVES US LIVING WATER. Tape their piece of decorated paper onto the bottle to remember today's lesson. They can fill it with fresh water and take it to school to help then share this message with their school friends.

1. WELCOME GAME: (10 minutes)
Living Water Tag:
One child is ‘the catcher’ all the other children will run around the room as if they are swimming. If someone gets tagged they must sit down. In order for them to get back in the game someone must swim in a circle around them. The game is over whenever everyone has been tagged or whenever the teacher blows the whistle and stops the game. You may want to play several different rounds so that more children can be ‘the catcher’

2. TEAM GAMES: (10 minutes)

Compliments from Bible for Children

Soon a Samaritan woman came to the well to fill her water jar. "Please give me a drink," Jesus said to the woman.

The woman was shocked! You see, in those days a Jew wouldn't be caught dead talking to a Samaritan. "Why are you, a Jew, asking me, a Samaritan woman, for a drink?"

Comparing Well water to Fountains of Living Water that Jesus was offering:

*Well water is good to drink when you're thirsty. But a Fountain of Living Water is for our thirsty souls. All of us are thirsty for God's love, His presence, His power.

* Well water is good for soaking hard things to soften them up such as a dry sponge. But a Fountain of Living Water softens up our hard hearts so it will absorb His love.

* Well water is good for putting out fires. But a Fountain of Living Water puts out fires of temptation in our hearts. All of us are tempted by Satan.

* Well water is good for washing. But a Fountain of Living Water washes our hearts that are dirty from sin. All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

* Well water is good for growing plants, trees and fruit. But a Fountain of Living Water makes our hearts grow and bloom with good deeds and mature fruit of the Spirit.

* Well water is good for floating and swimming. But a Fountain of Living Water floats our souls all the way up to heaven. All of us want to be in heaven with God one day.

* Well water is still. But a Fountain of Living Water bubbles up within our hearts and overflows into our family, friends, school mates etc.

When Jesus offered living water to the woman at the well, He was offering her a new life, a Christian life. And He offers it to you and me.

Do you want a Fountain of Living Water? I can't give it to you. Mom and Dad can't give it to you. The preachers in church can't give it to you. Only Jesus can give you a Living Water that lasts forever.

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:

Encourage the children to come to the alter take time now to appreciate God’s presence and drink deeply of the living water.


Allow His spirit to fill you afresh seeping deep into you reaching your very roots to help you grow.

Optional: Download 'Come living water' worship music video with lyrics

CLOSING PRAYER: Heavenly Father, please give us Your living water, although we do not deserve it. Make us fresh fountains of bubbly, living water, so we can share You with everyone. In Jesus name we pray.
