Water from the rock (Exodus 17:1-7)
Did you know that this is not the only time that Moses strikes a rock to get water? Again in Numbers 20:1-13, the Israelites are grumbling again in the wilderness, complaining that they don't have enough to drink, and God provides water from a rock (this story in Numbers can be found here). Looks like the Israelites took a while to trust that God would provide for them along the way...
You can find a large list of games that could be adapted to this Bible passage on the Sermon4kids website.
Why water matters in the Bible
A fantastic overview of water in the Bible from the BibleProject.
Today's story is included in the Saddleback Kids video from last week. While it is only a small part of this video, repetition can help children recall last week's story and build on their learning.
