Man Lowered Through Roof to be Healed

Monday, April 8, 2019
Includes an idea to make your own visual, too!

Thanks to Jeanne Dickson for sharing her songs and printables!

This includes the color flipchart and one-page black and white song printable. There is also a one-page standup that can be used instead of the flip chart. Just fold and turn to use.

This is the inside with the lesson and pictures. On the outside, Jeanne adds notes and assorted items. She might add a Bible verse, memory verse, a Bible song or two, a picture to color, a reward reminder and/or notes about class and hello to students. You could add a puzzle, maze, worksheet, whatever you prefer. 

The Newsletter Foldable can be used as a review handout, sent in the mail or in an email, especially for those unable to be in class. The same lesson is included for the teacher.

Jeanne Dickson designed this visual aid for this lesson.  

The house was made from a cardboard box (about the size that the outer envelope for wedding invitations come in) complete with a crowded room, a hole in the roof and a crippled man laying his bed. The students really enjoyed helping to lower the man down through the roof.
A hole is cut into the roof, the strings tied to the bed and a couple of ring hooks hold the strings in place and lower the bed (invisible friends). He usually lowers nicely into the room (most of the time; but sometimes he gets dumped out on his head) .
 The strings slide off easily and the man walks away carrying his bed. The man was made from a clothespin. His bed is from a piece of material and a couple of wooden dowels.
Thanks to Jeanne Dickson for permission to use and share her photo and visual aid idea.

  1. I made a bible house like you have. When the church built the new building they had some wooden boxes that things came in and I took one of those and made the bible house. the kiddos loved it. mine was a 28x21x13. having it to come apart and lay flat made it easier to carry and store. thanks for sharing your ideas.
