God parts the Red Sea: God is on our side

Story: God parts the Red Sea (Exodus 13:17-14:31)

The Big Idea: "God is on our side!" Though the Israelites felt trapped between the Egyptian army and the Red Sea, God fought for them. Those of us who follow Jesus can take solace in knowing that that same God fights for us today.

Bible Verse: Exodus 14:14a - "The Lord will fight for you."

Misc: We used plastic army men to represent the Israelites and Egyptians as we acted out the story, and used play dough coated popsicle sticks to represent the pillar of fire and pillar of cloud.
