Labor Day Sunday School Lesson for Preteens in Your Ministry

4. Snack

You’ll need:

  • frozen bread dough (thawed)
  • honey
  • butter

Have each child take a handful of dough, form a strip, and twist it. Tell kids that challah is the traditional bread for the Jewish Sabbath. This twisted bread is similar to challah. After the work of baking is over, rest together. Talk about any traditional meals or food kids have on the Sabbath.

5. Keep Up the Good Work!

Say: God gives us the opportunity to rest so we can continue to serve him. Your job now is to be a student, son or daughter, and friend.

Ask: How can we serve Christ at these jobs?

Have kids write their answers on newsprint. Close in prayer, thanking God for the privilege of work and rest.
