Lighthouse Bible Lessons:
An Overview for Children on the Book of Acts
Lighthouses vary in size, shape, and color to identify them during the day, so people know their location at sea in relation to land; this is called their “day mark.” At night, their light patterns shine differently, so people know their location in the dark. Sometimes one giant lighthouse is built on the shoreline; other times smaller lighthouses dot the waterway.
However, all lighthouses serve the same special purpose, which is to shine their light at night, pointing the way for ships to safely enter an inlet and bring them home to harbor.
A long time ago, lighthouses were powered using fires, candles, and even burning whale oil using a wick, but today they’re mostly powered by electricity.
In the Bible, light and fire serve a special purpose too, to represent God’s glory, his holy presence.
Our multi-aged Bible Lessons, for K-5th grade, build on a fun, lighthouse theme to help children discover how God displayed his glorious presence in light and fire, how he gave his “lighthouse power” to Jesus’ first followers, and how Christians today are to be like spiritual lighthouses, guiding others safely home to God.http://www.sundayschoolnetwork.com/curriculum-lighthouse.html #biblelessons #bookofacts #sundayschoollessons #childrenschurch #kidmin #sundayschool
