Stick Em Up

Here’s a great way for kids to understand why we raise our hands in worship.

You can come out dressed as a bandit and tell all the kids to Stick Em Up! Wait and see responses from the kids. You can then express to the kids worshipping God is kind of like you’re in a hold up. You can then ask them why did they hold up their hands. Wait for responses. The clincher is that when you hold up your hands you are surrendering yourself. Just as you surrender yourself to that bandit, that’s why we raise our hands to God. We are saying to Him when we raise our hands, okay God everything I got is yours. That means your problems, fears, frustrationg, desires, etc…

I have used this object lesson many times with kids and it really brings them to an understanding why we raise our hands
