This week in Emmaus Kids, we will be focusing on the story of Saul’s conversion.
We will be discussing how God transformed Saul on his way to Damascus. Saul’s
conversion will help us discuss how God transforms us and makes us a new
creation. The key verse comes from 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in
Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.”
During the Bonus Round, the Emmaus Kids will hear the story of Punchinello,
a character created by Max Lucado. The story is a metaphor for our need to be
connected to our Creator. When we are connected to our Creator, we can be
transformed. They will also attempt to write or draw a statement of faith. Our hope
is that they will begin to think about what they know about God, so that they will
connect with God and be transformed by God.
