Choosing the right altar 

This game will remind the children of what happened to the altars of the prophets of Baal and Elijah.  

Equipment needed: Altar cards template (pdf) 

Get all the children to line up in the middle of the room facing you.  Tell them that in a minute they have to choose to move to their right or their left.  On each side place a card with a picture of an altar on it.  The children then move to one side or another.  After they have done this the altar cards are turned over.  One card will be blank and this represents the altar of the prophets of Baal.  The other card will have a picture of an altar on fire representing the altar of Elijah that God set on fire.  Those on the side of the prophet of Baal are eliminated from the game.
