Game: Red light, green light
Select a kid to be It. They will stand facing the rest of the group at the far side of the room and announce when the “light” is red or green. The other kids may only move when the light is green. Any kids caught moving when the light is red must return to the starting side of the room. You may add in other light colors with different rules, such as: yellow light–move in slow motion; blue light–hop; purple light– dance; black light–walk backwards.
SAY • It might have felt frustrating to be on your way across the room when a red light stopped you. Today we will learn about a time Paul, also known as Saul, was stopped in the middle of his journey. Who do you think stopped him, and why?
Reflection and prayer
Distribute a sheet of paper to each child. Ask the kids to write about or draw a picture to answer the following questions:
•What does this story teach me about God or about the gospel?
•What does this story teach me about myself?
•Whom can I tell about this story?
