It’s All About Family – Gospel Magic Lesson


When we have times to be together with those we love and who love us, that is what makes holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, etc… so very special and important to our lives.

In this Gospel Magic Object Lesson, ‘It’s All About Family,’ you show three jumbo cards and ask your volunteer to choose one. It is a COMPLETELY FREE CHOICE! Regardless of his decision, you can instantly show that his choice was the correct one by revealing a prediction that has been hidden in plain sight all along.

Using the three picture illustrations of HOME, FAMILY, and DINNER TIME, your group will discover how God has given them people in their lives to be their family, to learn from them, spend time with them, and love them.

Print and fold the cards and you are set to go!

BreakAway Day Special Event / Service


Have you taken an honest look at the world around you lately? Seeing the present state of people’s lives and the world overall, the URGENCY to preach the gospel should be greater than ever! The earth is truly crying out to its Creator for redemption. Knowing this should shake one to his/her inner spirit, asking, “Am I doing what it takes to ‘make disciples’ as Christ commanded?”

Breakaway Day focuses in on the keywords, ‘break’ and ‘broken’ while leading children to experience God’s tender love and healing power in their lives and spirits, as well as bring help to the world around them.

Lesson Overview:

  • OPENING ACTIVITY – Establish the concept of something being broken, including one’s heart/spirit.
  • RELAY – Explore Numbers 15:31 and understand that God’s commands can be broken, resulting in that person being ‘cut off’ from God. “Because they have despised the LORD’s word and broken his commands, they must surely be cut off; their guilt remains on them.” (NIV)
  • OBJECT LESSON – Recognize that James 2:10 details that breaking one command is the same as breaking them all. “If you obey every law except one, you are still guilty of breaking them all.” (CEV)
  • RELAY – Show how belief is needed to be a part of God’s family. Also, illustrate ways unbelief can be seen in our lives using Romans 11:20 as a basis for the teaching. “But those branches were broken off because they did not believe, and you continue to be part of the tree only because you believe.” (NCV)
  • REBUS SCRIPTURE PICTURE – Instill theme verse- Psalm 34:18, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted.”
  • ONE ON ONE CHALLENGE / OBJECT LESSON – Express how knowing that one is ‘broken off’ or in need of forgiveness should not bring sorrow but hope — for Christ came to ‘comfort the brokenhearted’ and ‘heal the brokenhearted.’ Isaiah 61:1, “He has sent me to comfort those whose hearts are broken.” (NCV) Psalm 147:3, “He heals the brokenhearted.” (NIV)
  • INVITATION TO SALVATION

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES INCLUDED:

  • 6 BreakAway Games
  • PowerPoint for Main Lesson Points
  • BreakAway Day Poster Master
  • Large BreakAway Day Graphic
  • Rebus PowerPoint and Printable PDF
  • Printable “I Broke the Mold On… Breakaway Day” Stickers
