Bible Bites ~ The First Church

Week 2: The First Church

Bread: Acts 2: 42 - 47

Bite: “They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

Believing: One time this week, pull out your Loving Family Dollhouse dolls, your G.I. Joe’s, your Barbies, or your popsicle stick puppets and play “First Church”.

Your tot will learn so much as you set up the dolls to meet in a house (instead of a church building) talk and eat together, teach each other, share their things, and praise God together. In order to make it as realistic as possible and to keep your tot’s attention, imagine some small episodes that might have come up at the time. You might pretend small crises like, “Who brought that bread this week? NO BODY?! What are we going to do? What are we going to eat?!” to big things (think: Ananias and Sapphira) explaining that this is really how the very first church lived!

This is a great idea and would resonate hugely with my 2 kiddos! This has been heavy on my heart lately, and I am so thankful for "Bible Bites". Thank you!!!
