After examining the Gospels for stories of Jesus healing the sick, the children will plan a skit based on their favorite story of Jesus the Healer.
? healing the paralytic (Mark 2:1-12)
? healing Jairus' daughter and the woman with a hemorrhage (Luke 8:40-56)
? healing the blind man, Bartimaeus (Mark 10:46-52)
? healing Peter's mother-in-law (Luke 4:38-39)
? healing a deaf man (Mark 7:31-37)
? healing the 10 lepers (Luke 17:11-19)
? healing a mute person (Matthew 9:32-34)

? healing of two men possessed by demons (Matthew 8:28-34)

If any children want to, encourage them to retell the Gospel story in a present-day setting.
If there are children in your group with special needs (physical, visual, hearing, language, or behavioral disabilities), adapt the activity accordingly.
