Elementary Bible Lesson: Footsteps of Service
(Epaphroditus and the Shunemmite)
Memory Verse: Philippians 2:4
Preschool Bible Lesson: Elisha and the Shunnemite: Helping Others

Key Item: Homemade Bread
Serve cornbread or other obviously homemade bread and apple butter or homemade jam. Don't buy them at the store: the fact that these items are home-made is part of the lesson tie-in.

Snack Lesson:
[Take a bite of the bread.] Mmm. Did you know, this bread is homemade?
Someone made this bread by hand, just for us.

Has your family ever taken food to someone else, to another family maybe, when they needed help?
Maybe they were sick, or had some kind of other trouble, or you just wanted to help them?
We do that sometimes.

In the Bible lesson today, we're going to learn about a time when someone brought
food to the prophet Elisha to help him, and another time when the Apostle Paul was in trouble,
and someone from the church brought him food and other things to help him.

Additional Snack Items:
To make the snack more substantial, we served fruit and ice cream
alongside the bread and jam. We also provided Kool-Aid to drink.
