Note to the Teacher
To set this lesson up, you’ll need to back up a bit from the reading for this week and remind them of the context of the story for today. Jesus has healed Jairus’ daughter and the woman. He has sent out his disciples and they have returned. And Jesus has just walked on water after feeding 5,000 people. This is a big chapter!
This lesson will focus on healing, and our need to be anchored in Christ.
|Time||Description of Activity|
1. Activity - this week we will start with a game that will tie in to the lesson a little later.
Take this lesson to the next level by getting students engaged with a simple hands-on creative element and application discussion: Ultimate Ninja. Complete instructions on how to make this happen are at the Youth Worker Collective online at https://youthworkercollective.com/ultimate-ninja-a-great-game-with-a-message/
2. Ice Breaker - Ask:
Bridge: Jesus landed on the shore and crowds started to come! They had heard about this healer and they wanted to see him. Some traveled a long way!
3. Scripture: Jesus landed at Gennesaret and anchored the boat there. Then, people started to come. Read Mark 6:53-56 in The Passion Translation
In these few verses we can see many take-aways. What do you need? Are you anchored in Christ? Do you need healing in some way?
Spend time sharing and closing in prayer.
