I Go To The Rock

Participate in an activity and responsive reading that reminds us that Jesus is our rock.

What you need:

  • Index card for each person
  • The largest rock you can bring in or a huge drawing of a rock.
  • Copies of the reading

READ Joshua 3:14-4:7

Say something like: We, by our remembrances and thanksgiving, are going to build a monument of praise.Like it was for Joshua, it is imperative to recognize and remember the awesome things God has done in our lives.

On your index card I want you to write about one way God has blessed you or answered a prayer or provided help to you.

Come up and tape that praise to this rock…our rock.(Play some music)

Encourage your people to be ready to add to this monument of praise each week.Let it be a reminder of what God is doing in your midst.
