Cathy's Corner: John the Baptist: A Special Voice

The lesson begins with the circumstances of the birth of John the Baptist, and ends with Jesus asking John to baptize Him. You can look for The Death of John the Baptist next week.
Cathy likes to use her visuals on a magnetic board. After everything is printed, cut out, numbered and laminated, add thin magnets to the back. Everything is already numbered in this set to follow with the lesson outline below. Click here to download the magnetic board visual aids.
These are the same visuals as the above, but they are full size. They can be used for visuals, a flip chart or a bulletin board. Everything is numbered to follow with the lesson outline below. Click here to download the full size visual aids.
