The Promise Maker

A person's promises reflect his or her character.  Help the children learn about God and His character by studying some of the promises He has made to us.

Divide the children into small groups.  Select several promises from this List of Some of God's Promises and give each group a different promise.
Ask the children to read the promise and list the things they learn about God and His character by reading the verse.
