The aim of this session is to: teach the story of Elisha. To help the children to trust God for everything they need and understand God’s kindness and care.


2 Kings 5;1-15, 2 Kings 4:1-7

Read the account on Elisha and the widow’s oil from 2 Kings 4:1-7. Place a little oil in your child’s hand for them to feel and smell. Explain how oil was very precious in Bible times. Collect some contains from around your home and a jug of water. Try to guess how many containers you can fill before the jug is empty. Help your child to fill the containers. Share how God did a miracle by not allowing the widow’s oil to run out.


  1. Why do you think God told Elisha to tell the woman to gather jars?
  2. How do you think the woman felt when the jars were all full? How would you have felt seeing that happen?
  3. Has there ever been a time when there was something you really needed that God provided?
