Preschool Sunday School – Elijah and King Ahab

Our church uses Lifeway’s Gospel Project curriculum in our Preschool and Children’s Department.  It is awesome!  I’d love to answer any questions you may have if you are considering it.

The lesson this week was about Elijah and King Ahab (the altar contest) in which God showed His power in a mighty way.

I usually modify it somewhat for our very little ones – toddlers and two’s.  I create a one page lesson plan for those rooms.   You can download that here.

Here is the altar sheet in case you want to use it for the art project.  I got it from this site, but modified it somewhat so our toddlers wouldn’t have to do any cutting.  They will just glue on pieces of red, orange, yellow tissue paper squares.  I will probably just go ahead and put the glue on it for them with a glue stick and then let them just lay the tissue squares on top.  Our older preschoolers can glue for themselves.  Also, I will let our older preschoolers use blue water color paint to paint water in the jars.

Hope this helps!
