o "presented" ­ Place both hands palms-up and move them forward as if giving something o "alive" ­ Extend the thumb and pointer finger of each hand to form an L-shape; point to hips and then raise arms up to point to shoulders o "many" ­ With loosely closed hands, snap your fingers out from under your thumbs to result in open hands o "believed" ­ Point to your mind with one hand and then clasp your hands together o "on" ­ Set one hand on top of the other hand o "Lord" ­ Form the L shape as in "alive" with your right hand, begin with your thumb pointing to your left shoulder and end with it pointing to your right hip


o Color the picture with the memory verse on it

o Give each child a picture of Tabitha with her eyes open and a picture of Tabitha with her eyes closed o Color the pictures and glue them back to back on a craft stick o Retell the story with Tabitha (eyes open) doing good deeds, Tabitha dying (eyes closed), and then Tabitha brought back to life by Peter (eyes open)

· Role-Play

o Peter saw a need. Before he did anything, he prayed. Once he knew what God wanted him to do, he had the power to raise Tabitha from the dead o When we see a need, we should pray to find out what God wants us to do. When we are doing His will, we can have confidence He'll give us whatever power we may need o Have one child pretending to be in need (hurt, sad, missing something, lost...) o Have another child who becomes aware of that need o The second child stops to pray and asks God what he can do to help o Say, "God reminds (the person praying) that the Bible says, (share a verse that would help to give direction)." o The child acts out an appropriate helpful response
