Lesson Plan

Useless Junk? or Made with a Purpose?

Demonstrate that all items (and people) have a purpose in God's plan with a Sunday School assignment. After examining seemingly useless items, such as bolts, paper clips, or batteries, kids fill in the blanks to express the item's purpose, other things it can be used for, and what makes it happy or sad.
