The Tower of Babel | Genesis 11:1-9


Lesson Goal:
To teach children about the story of the tower of Babel and how we cannot do things on our own. To be successful in life, we must depend on God and His strength.


Opening Prayer:
Dear God, as we learn about the tower of Babel, help us to remember that we always need You. God, You give us strength, and when we trust in You, anything is possible! In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.


Bible Memory Verse:

Philippians 4:13 (NLT)

13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

● “For I can” - Point thumbs to the chest.
● “Do everything” - Spread arms out wide.
● “Through Christ” - Touch index fingers to the center of palms where nails pierced Jesus.
● “Who gives” - Hold out hands, palms up.
