Bible Crafts: Calling of Jeremiah 1:4-10

Print Friendly and PDF

When God calls us, He equips us to do His work! In the Old Testament, God called prophets like Jeremiah to share His news with people. Jeremiah was uncertain due to his youth, but God promised to provide Him with what he would need to proclaim Holy messages. These crafts remind children that God will always help us to do what is needed. A “Can-Do Can” recycles a container to be re-purposed for Godly goals. A “Godly Growth Reminder” recalls how God knows and calls us from the very beginning of our lives.
