Paul (Projects and Activities)

   
 

A Paul-A-Thon
How much do you know about Paul? Create index cards with questions about Paul. Students can be divided into two teams or stand individually. The team or person with the most correct answers wins. As teams, they can use the Bible and help each other find the information. Sample questions to get you started:

  • What was Paul’s name before he became a Christian?
  • What happened to Paul on his way to Damascus?
  • Who talked to him on the way?
  • Who did the angel ask to help Paul receive his sight?
  • Was he willing to heal Paul?
  • What was Paul’s favorite story to tell?
  • Name three of Paul’s friends. How many times was he in prison?
  • How did people respond to his message?
  • Why did people want to kill him?
  • Add your own and have fun learning about Paul. Start out reading some of the stories about Paul before you ask the questions.
   
 

Skit Time

Let everyone be Paul and they can either write a letter about something they like or don’t like in their church or they can give an impassioned speech about Jesus. Preach like Paul preached. What would they have to know about Paul? About Jesus?

Bring in a small crate or slightly raised platform (soap box) for them to stand on and preach the way Paul preached.

When they are finished preaching, “arrest” them. How do they react? Would they sing like Paul and Silas in prison? What quality of thought is required to move from being arrested to singing praises to God. Are we willing to sing praises when we think we are persecuted?
