Give each child a pencil or crayon and a sheet of paper. Invite eveyone to close their eyes and think of a time when they have felt God very near to them. Suggest that each child ask God to help them to remember one of these times. The leader should not give any specific suggestions of when anyone may have felt near to God.
Now, on your piece of paper, see if you can draw or write something to illustrate or describe that special time.
When everyone is finished, invite those who would like to share what they have written or drawn, or talk about their time of feeling near to God. You will find that once one child has shared, it becomes easier for others.
Finish by praying together thanking God for being close and asking Him to be with them during this coming week.
Read Psalm 139:1-12
