    After you have finished the Sunday School lesson for Attributes of God - Get Organized, this Sunday School game will help reinforce your lesson. Sunday school games keep kids learning while having fun. When you have time, a game is a great way to reinforce what you've just taught.

    Get Organized! Sunday School Game
    ->->->Sign up for FREE Sunday school stuff on the right!->->->

    Take a look at this verse before class as you will be teaching it to the kids:

    James 1:22 KJV

    22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

    If you have small children, you can use only the first part of the verse.

    What You'll Need for the Sunday School Game

    To play the 'Get Organized!' game you'll only need an open place for the kids to stand and sit. You can also copy the bible verse above on a piece of paper or poster board for the kids to see.

    Begin by having all the kids bunch up in the middle of the area. If possible, you could play this game outside on the green grass just like from the Sunday School lesson.

    Tell the kids they need to listen and to hear what you are saying just like the verse above. The kids will need to hear what you say, then do it.

    Depending on the size of the group, you can clap your hands together 1 to 5 times and have the kids get into those groups. For more kids, clap 5 to 10 times. For example, if you clap your hands together 3 times, the kids will need to get into groups of 3 sitting on the floor or grass. Any kids leftover can come to stand by you and you can let them clap next time.

    You can keep clapping, letting the kids reorganize themselves. This game is so much fun to watch. The kids scramble around as they try to get into their groups.

    Once seated, have the kids say the verse aloud.

    Another version of this Sunday School game.

    Have the numbers 1 to 4 taped to different walls. Put the number 1 on one wall, the number 2 on the next wall, and so on.

    Divide the kids into groups.

    Print out the numbers 1 to 4 and cut them out. Place them inside a bowl or cup and give them a shake. Draw out a number and have the first group go to that number on the wall. Have all the kids say the verse.

    Next, draw out the next number and have the next group race to that number on the wall. Keep going until all the kids have a chance to find a number on the wall. To make it more interesting, give each group a name and just call out which wall you want them to go to. This version of the game moves quicker and keeps the kids on their toes.

    For example, name one group of kids the Genesis group and another the 'Exodus' group. Call out 'Genesis' go to number 2 or 'Exodus' go to number 4.

    You could also just have one group and make all the kids go together to each number and say the verse.

    Teaching kids bible verses are a very important part of Sunday School.

    May God bless you as you teach kids the word of God.

    Attributes of God are something people look for often. Sometimes people want to know just how great He really is while others want to become more like Him. Me - I want to become more like Him.

    Known fact - I am horrible at getting organized. I get off to a good start, then before I know it, I have started something else and have left the organizing behind. Are you like that?

    It's true - one of the hardest things for people to do is to get organized. Of course, some people have that natural instinct (I wish you could buy natural instincts. Oh, well). Since buying the natural instinct to get organized is out of the question, we'll just have to look at the attributes of God to see just how getting organized is important to Him and how we can become more like Him.

    Attributes of God Sunday School Lesson

    Today we're going to learn about one of the attributes of God. Does anyone know what an attribute is or what they think it might be?
    An attribute means a quality or characteristic someone has.
    For example, if you say that someone has good attributes, you are saying someone has good qualities or characteristics about them.
    One of God's attributes is he is organized. I bet your wondering how we know that God is organized.
    Well, we can look at many things in the bible that tells us how He is organized. Take the books of the bible, for instance. Each book is perfect. Each book is written so that the words work together with other books of the bible.

    How Jesus is Organized

    One bible story that helps us understand God's attribute of organization is Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand. Do you know that story? If the kids do not know the story of Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand you can touch on it just a bit. You can find this bible story in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. To get all the details of the entire story, you'll need to read it in all four books.
    In the book of Mark, verse 39 and 40 we read this:
    39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
    40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
    Get the Attributes of God - Get Organized!
    Sunday School Game
    Why didn't Jesus just tell everyone to sit down? Why was it important for the those people to sit down in groups?
    Because He is organized.
    The people sitting down in groups of 100 and in groups of 50 allowed the disciples to distribute the food easily. It also allow the disciples to gather the left over food quickly. In every word of the bible and in every lesson of the bible we can pick up on amazing things God tries to teach us. Nothing in the bible is useless. Everything is important.
    What does this one attribute of God tell us? We need to get organized.
    If organization wasn't important, He would have left this part out of the bible. But, he didn't.
    Imagine if you went to school and the teacher let all the kids in your classroom sit wherever they wanted, go to lunch whenever they wanted, and talk whenever they wanted. The teacher wouldn't get anything done during the day much less teach the class what they needed to know.
    Being organized helps keep the day running smooth, it helps keep chaos down, it helps us to learn order and respect. Without being organized, life would be crazy.
    How many of you keep your homework where it should be? Does mommy or daddy gather it up for you every morning or do you take care of it yourself? How about your room? Is it neat, tidy, and organized?

    Organizing Our Christian Life

    Did you know that we need to organize our Christian life too?
    We should have a time everyday that we read our bible. Some kids may be too young to read the bible by themselves, so say, 'a time of day when mommy, daddy, or sissy, reads the bible to you'.
    Remember, while bible story books are great, children need to be introduced to God's word early in life. They may not understand what they hear or read completely, but God will open up His word to them when the time is right. They need to keep reading just as we as Sunday School teachers need to read the verses aloud for the kids to hear.
    Always use the King James Version of the bible. Just because a bible has be written so that kids can understand better, it doesn't mean you should use it. God wrote His words the way He wanted them to be written and to be read. We should NOT try to change it.
    We should always put God first. Not just say, 'I put God first'. We need to actually do it!
    As Sunday School teachers, we need to study the attributes of God, get organized, and become more Christ-like every day!
    May God bless you on your journey of teaching Sunday School.
