Snacks (Soldiers of God)

Monday:Twizzlers and Popcorn
Elementary Lesson: Red Cord of Salvation: Rahab was saved because she believed in God, and we are saved the same way.
Elementary Verse: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
Preschool Lesson: Joshua and the Walls: We should obey God
(Or Twizzlers and pretzels, or Twizzlers and chips, or something along those lines.)
The Twizzlers resemble the red cord that Rahab hung from her window as an act of faith. Remind the children that Rahab was saved because she believed and put out the cord, even though the cord itself couldn't save her. The popcorn or pretzels or chips are because Twizzlers by themselves wouldn't be much of a snack, especially for the older children. For preschool, you may want to go with just the Twizzlers.

Tuesday: Nacho Chips and Cheese
Elementary Lesson: Commanding Officer: We should obey Christ. (Centurion's Servant)
Elementary Verse: This is love for God: to obey his commands; and his commands are not burdensome. 1st John 5:3-4
Preschool Lesson: Centurion's Servant: Jesus is God
(This snack does not correlate with the lesson, but you can remind the children of the lesson, or ask them questions about it, while they eat.)

Wednesday: Shield Cookies
Elementary Lesson: Armor of God: Resist temptation using God's word, not human reasoning.
Elementary Verse: Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. Ephesians 6:11.
Preschool Lesson: David and Goliath: Trust in God
Round cookies, frosted grey, with colored trim, resemble shields.

Thursday: Vanilla Wafers
Elementary Lesson: Good Soldier: We should endure the world's contempt when living and sharing our faith. (Jeremiah and the cistern)
Elementary Verse: I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Romans 1:16
Preschool Lesson: The Blind Army: God is very powerful; there is none like him.
(This snack does not correlate with the lesson, but you can remind the children of the lesson, or ask them questions about it, while they eat.)

Friday: Prison-Bar Cupcakes
Elementary Lesson: Prayer Warrior: We should be praying; prayer is effective. (Peter in prison)
Elementary Verse: Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18
Preschool Lesson:
Cupcakes frosted white with dark stripes to resemble prison bars. Remind the children that Peter was in prison for teaching people about Jesus, but he was freed by an angel when the church prayed for him.
