March 28, 2021: Prophet of Courage (1 Kings 18:5-18)

To begin the session:

Place at chairs (or distribute electronically) copies of the “Profiles in Courage” exercise from the activity page, which you can download here. Work the exercise alone or in study groups.

  • If all your learners are online, consider using Zoom Breakouts (which you can learn about here).
  • If some of your learners are online and others are in the classroom with you, consider breaking the in-person learners into groups together and using Zoom Breakouts for the online learners.

To engage the learners in a study of the Scripture text:

Distribute copies of the “A Tale of Three Men” exercise from the activity page for groups to complete as indicated; follow with whole-class discussion.

To encourage personal application:

Distribute copies of the “My Prayer for Courage” exercise from the activity page. Give individuals one minute to jot down ideas, and then ask volunteers to share what they’ve written.

Note: Whenever you distribute copies of anything, use hard-copy (paper) handouts for those physically present and e-copies for those joining online via Zoom, etc.

Tip: For a tutorial on how to use Zoom breakouts, go here. For many other Zoom tutorials, see here. A key to using Zoom effectively without fumbling is to practice ahead of time!
