Unseen: The Armor of God for Kids: 3:30pm-4:30pm (M during regular school days) Grades K-6

Mrs.Kominak/ LS 201

We will learn about the various pieces of spiritual armor explained in Ephesians 6:14-17. We will discover how the physical pieces of armor helped a Roman soldier and how the spiritual armor can help us! We will create our own journals and life size soldiers, adding a new piece of armor with verses/words with each new lesson. We will also learn about other Bible stories that help to explain each piece of armor. These Bible stories include: Elisha and the Servant, Adam and Eve in the Garden, Paul’s Life, Jesus Calms the Storm, Shadrach, Meshach, Abendego, Jacob and Esau, and Jesus Resists Temptation. We will also be challenging ourselves to memorize Ephesians 6:14-17 which is:

“Stand therefore with truth like a belt around your waist, Righteousness like armor on your chest, and your feet sandaled with Readiness for the Gospel of Peace. In every situation take up the shield of Faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.” 

The underlying objective for our Bible study is for knights of all grade levels to come together and share in the Word of God. I hope to build relationships with the students, and for them to build relationships with one another. Most importantly, I hope we all build a stronger relationship with Jesus, learning what it truly means to put on our armor of God.
