Feed 5,000

*This idea is for repeat-singing Tell Me The Stories of Jesus.

  1. Clear container (marked 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000)
  2. Scoop
  3. Fish Crackers
  4. Handouts

1.  INTRO:
"One of the stories of Jesus is when Jesus fed 5,000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes."

2.  READ Matthew 14:17-21
17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and abrake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they atook up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

21 And they that had eaten were about a five thousand men, beside women and children.

3.  Display the clear, marked container

"Today we are going to feed 5,000 today by singing our best!  If we sing well, we will get a big scoop in the jar!  Let's see how many we can feed!"

4.  Sing and Scoop!
Repeat as many times as it takes.

5.  AFTER: Hand out little bags of fishies with the Scripture

*Idea from Kay Maynard on the LDS Choristers Facebook Group.
