Jesus Heals (Mark 1:29-39) Sunday School Lesson and Activities

As Jesus began his ministry, he proved there was power behind his words with a flurry of miracles. He healed the sick, cast out demons, and preached the news about God’s Kingdom. Use these PDF Sunday School Lessons to help kids understand those powerful events.

Unfortunately, hurt and sickness are all around us. Children in a post-pandemic world are especially aware of the impact illness can have, and might curiously contemplate what healing means. In this message, communicate the importance of our hope in Christ. This children’s talk discusses miracles of Jesus and what it means that He promises eternal life, even if it doesn’t bring immediate physical healing.

Children’s Sermon Video

Sickness and pain are all around us. Unfortunately, children today are quite aware of this, and it can seem confusing or frustrating. But we rejoice that in Christ we find hope and healing. Our ultimate solution to life’s struggles does not lie in any manmade treatment but in the one who came to suffer in our stead. While on Earth, Jesus demonstrated that He came to care for people. He provided physical healing, but also sought to save the lost through His teaching and genuine love. That care and concern continues today, as Jesus promises to be with us and provide for us.

Bible Craft Demonstration

Discussing the healing miracles of Jesus is a beautiful way to remember how Christ cares for His people. It also encourages children to reach out and care for those around them. These two crafts are meant to celebrate the healing work of our Lord, and to remind kids to love and serve others. A decorative “helping hands” wreath allows students to brainstorm ways to care for people, and a card or wall hanging reminds them that Jesus heals us from the inside out.

Mark 1:29-39: Jesus Heals Many

29 And immediately he left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her. 31 And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

32 That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

35 And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.” 38 And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.” 39 And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons.
