Activity: Bible story picture

Session: Simeon and Anna

Bible reference: Luke 2:22-38

Themes: Anna and Simeon, Comes as Jesus, Comes to his people

Why: to be sure that we can trust God

With: a copy of the picture (printed on A4 paper) for each child; or enlarged copies for group use; art and craft materials

Duration time: 5-10 minutes

Description: 1 You can use the picture as an introduction to the Bible story or to help you review the story together.

2 There are five Bible-story pictures to go with this series about ‘Christmas people’, each showing characters who were affected by the news of the coming of Jesus. As the fourth picture is completed (coloured, painted or collaged), tape it to the other scenes (Mary and the angel, Jesus is born, the shepherds) and keep it till the next session. Explain that you will then add the last panel of the nativity story to make a long frieze of the whole story.

3 Make sure each child ends up with a complete frieze of five panels, even if they miss some of the sessions.
