John 6: 1-15)


Memory Verse:
"He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without
cost from the spring of the water of life." Revelation 21:6.

The explorers are starting the new year by investigating the miracles of
Jesus and how they relate to the kingdom of heaven. This month we look at
the feeding of the 5000 from 5 loaves and 2 fish. The focus of these miracles
is to highlight the breaking in of the new kingdom that will be fully realized
in the New Jerusalem. We will also be making connections as to what that
means for our lives today.

Blastoff Week (January 9)

The children will be listening to the story of the feeding of the 5000.
They will then be involved in the process of making food to help them
enter the story.

Drama Week (January 16)

We will be looking at how great a miracle feeding 5000 from 2 fish and
5 loaves is. 5000 is a large number to be explored and made concrete
through dramatic exercises.

Technology Week (January 23)

The children will have a "Movie Day" that focuses on the miracles of

Life Application Week (January 30)

The children will be participating in games relating to the story.
