Title: Exploring the Importance of Repentance: The Day of Atonement

Welcome, young friends, to our special lesson today, as we learn about a special day called the Day of Atonement. During this day, God wants to teach us about repentance, which means turning away from our wrong choices and asking Him for forgiveness. Are you ready to explore the importance of repentance together?

Opening Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for this time together. Help us to understand the significance of repentance and how it brings us closer to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Main Lesson:

1. Understanding the Day of Atonement:
The Day of Atonement was a holy day for the Israelites, set aside by God for His people to come before Him and seek forgiveness for their sins. It was a time when they made things right with God and each other through repentance and sacrifice. This day was also known as Yom Kippur.

2. Reflecting on Our Actions:
Just like the Israelites, God wants us to take time to reflect on our actions and think about the things we have done that may have hurt Him or others. We need to be honest with ourselves and admit when we have done wrong.

3. Asking for Forgiveness:
Once we realize that we have made mistakes, it’s important to ask God for forgiveness. He is always ready to forgive us when we come to Him sincerely from our hearts. We can talk to Him through prayer and tell Him we are sorry for our wrong choices.

4. Changing Our Ways:
God not only forgives us but also helps us become better people. He gives us the power to change our ways and make better choices in the future. When we genuinely repent, God’s Holy Spirit lives in our hearts and guides us on the right path.

5. Honoring Forgiveness:
Just as God forgives us, He wants us to forgive others when they ask for forgiveness. It is important for us to show love and kindness to others, just as we have received from God.


The Day of Atonement teaches us the importance of repentance. When we admit our mistakes, ask God for forgiveness, and change our ways, we draw closer to Him and experience His love and forgiveness. Remember, God wants each one of us to be reconciled with Him and have a relationship filled with love and joy. Let’s choose to live a life of repentance, showing God’s love to others every day.

Closing Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank you for teaching us about repentance through the Day of Atonement. Help us to always remember the importance of admitting our mistakes, seeking forgiveness, and changing our ways. May Your love shine through us as we show forgiveness and kindness to others. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Remember verse:
“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” – Acts 3:19 (NIV)

Object Lesson

Title: Exploring the Importance of Repentance: The Day of Atonement

Objective: To teach young children about the significance of repentance and forgiveness through an engaging and interactive illustration using props.

Props needed:
1. A clean white cloth (a large handkerchief or piece of fabric will work)
2. A small spray bottle filled with water
3. A washable marker or crayon (preferably black or dark blue)
4. A small basin half-filled with water
5. A dry cloth or towel

1. Begin by gathering the children around a table or on the floor where you can easily access the required props.
2. Introduce the concept of repentance by explaining that it means saying sorry and wanting to make things right with someone, particularly with God.
3. Explain that in the Bible, there is a special day called the Day of Atonement, where people would gather to ask God for forgiveness and to cleanse themselves.
4. Hold up the clean white cloth and explain that it represents a person’s heart when they are forgiven and made clean by God.
5. Take the washable marker or crayon and make a small mark or write a short word on the white cloth, symbolizing the mistakes or sins we make.
6. Ask the children if they think the mark can be removed just by saying sorry. Discuss the idea that repentance involves both saying sorry and actively trying to make things right.
7. Sprinkle a few drops of water from the spray bottle onto the marked area, explaining that the water represents God’s forgiveness and cleansing.
8. Gently rub the cloth with the water, demonstrating how the mark begins to fade or disappear slowly as they repent and seek forgiveness.
9. Emphasize that when we truly repent, God forgives and cleanses us completely, just like the mark is removed from the cloth.
10. Transition to the next part of the illustration by saying that repentance can also involve making amends or making things right with others, just as we would clean our hands if they were dirty.
11. Submerge one hand in the water basin, symbolizing an act of cleansing and making things right.
12. Dry the hand with the cloth or towel, signifying the restoration and healing that comes through repentance and forgiveness.
13. Conclude the illustration by reiterating the importance of repentance, and how it leads to forgiveness, a clean heart, and peace with God and others.

Remember, this illustration should be conducted in a calm and attentive environment, allowing time for questions and discussions throughout the process.

Craft Idea

Craft Idea: Repentance Prayer Bracelets

Objective: To help Young Evangelical Christian Children understand the importance of repentance and the significance of the Day of Atonement in their faith.

Supply List:
1. Elastic cord or string
2. Assorted beads (in colors symbolizing repentance, such as blue and white)
3. Letter beads (optional but recommended, to spell out words like “repent” or “forgive”)
4. Scissors
5. Tape
6. Printed Bible verses related to repentance (optional, for discussion during the craft)


1. Begin by explaining the concept of repentance and its importance in the Christian faith, specifically on the Day of Atonement. Talk about how forgiveness and turning away from sin are key elements of repentance.

2. Distribute elastic cords or strings to each child. Help them measure and cut the desired length for their bracelet (typically about 6-8 inches, depending on wrist size).

3. Introduce the supply of beads, explaining their colors and why they are significant. Encourage children to choose beads that symbolize repentance, such as blue for purity or white for forgiveness.

4. Allow children to select and string their chosen beads onto their elastic cord, guiding them if necessary. Remind them to leave enough space at both ends to tie the bracelet securely.

5. During the craft, facilitate a discussion about repentance and forgiveness using printed Bible verses related to the topic (optional). Invite children to share their thoughts and experiences regarding repentance and how it connects to the Day of Atonement.

6. For additional personalization, provide letter beads for children who are able to spell words associated with repentance (such as “repent” or “forgive”) on their bracelets.

7. Once the beads are strung, help each child tie the bracelet securely, ensuring it fits comfortably around their wrist. Alternatively, use a small piece of tape on each end to secure the beads and prevent them from falling off.

8. Finally, have the children gather in a circle and lead them in a short prayer, emphasizing repentance and the significance of the Day of Atonement. Encourage them to wear their bracelets as a reminder of their commitment to repentance and forgiveness.

Note: This craft serves as a visual and interactive reminder for children to reflect on their actions, seek forgiveness, and express their commitment to repentance in line with their Christian faith.
