Some of the Most Amazing Stories in the Bible
People like to gather around the campfire to share exciting and scary stories - but all in good fun. The Bible is filled with amazing, scary, and exciting stories that are more than just fun – they are all true and can teach us valuable lessons about God.
Campfire Stories Lessons Overview:
“Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.” Psalm 34:11 (NIV)
Lessons:Story of the Fiery Furnace – When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abenego wouldn't bow down to a false idol, the king threw them in a fiery furnace. Kids will learn that when we stand up for God, he will stand up for us. Daniel 3:8-30, The Fiery Furnace
Story of the Silent Lions – When Daniel was caught praying to God, he was thrown into a den of hungry lions but God protected him. Kids will learn that we can trust God to protect us. Daniel 6:6-28, Daniel and the Lion's Den

Each Lesson Includes:
- Make It Stick! Parent Sheet - so you can let mom and dad know what kids are learning each week and look like a rockstar teacher who's thought of everything.
- Memory Verse - so that you can make sure kids are getting Scripture in their minds and hearts every single week and you can feel like each lesson was a success even when it seems like 90% of your lesson time is spent saying things like "calm down", "let's be quiet", "hands to yourself!"
- Skit or Puppet Show - so you have a way to easily connect the lesson with your hands-on and visual learners. No drama team? No problem! Just hand the script to the kids. They'll have a blast and think you're the coolest.
- Craft Activity - so you can give kids a physical reminder of the Bible lesson (and give yourself an activity to keep them busy until mom and dad come back!)
- Game - so kids don't leave and say church was BORING! Games are so important to help keep kids engaged. Our large group games always include a "What's The Point" section to help you connect the game to the lesson.
- Large Group Lesson - so you can present the Bible story in a clear and fun way, which means now you can enjoy Saturday nights instead of stressing over putting a lesson together!
- Small-Group Discussion - so you can find out who was paying attention and who was talking to their neighbor. Just kidding, this is a great way for you to build deeper relationships with your kiddos after each lesson, which means you're going to care about them so much you'll cry like a baby when they graduate and go to middle school :(
