Healing in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry
The Bible is full of stories about physical healing, especially the healings performed by Jesus. Throughout the Gospels, we see Jesus healing people with various physical disabilities such as blindness, deafness, and paralysis. However, it is important to note that not everyone who was sick or disabled received physical healing in the Bible.
The topic of healing should be handled with sensitivity, especially when working with children who may be facing illness or disability themselves or have loved ones who are struggling. The question of why some people are healed and others are not is a difficult one, and it requires a careful and compassionate approach.
As children's workers, it is important to handle the topic of healing with care and sensitivity. That's why this page is dedicated to providing creative ideas, resources, and activities that you can use in your children's ministry, kid's church, children's and youth work, or Christian primary school. These resources can help children explore the concept of healing, understand the diversity of experiences that people face, and learn to be compassionate towards those who are struggling with illness or disability.
Through interactive activities, Bible study, and other resources, you can help kids develop a deeper understanding of healing and its role in the Christian faith. You can also help them learn to navigate difficult questions and emotions surrounding illness and disability. With these materials, you can create a safe and supportive environment where children feel seen, heard, and valued, regardless of their experiences with illness or disability.
