WHAT YOU WILL DO:

If time permits, begin this activity by reading Mark 5:1-20 (The healing of a demon-possessed man). Have one child pass out an index card with a verse to each child. Have another volunteer stand in the center of the room, and tape the index cards displaying a sin on his or her clothing in various places. The volunteer will have the appearance of one covered in sin. You can instruct the rest of the children to begin looking up their verse, and read it several times. Then one at a time, have the children read their verse aloud, find the referenced sin on the child standing in the center of the room, and rip it off.

Relate to the kids how Jesus can remove all of our sins, no matter how many we have.
