Jesus Calms the Storm

Luke 8:22-25

Jesus Calms the Storm

This weeks memory verse:

Psalm 127:1 “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?”


For today’s Home Study you will need the following:

 Rubbing Alcohol

 Mineral Spirits

 Food Coloring

 Water Bottle

Fill half of the bottle with rubbing alcohol. Then put two or three drops of blue food coloring in the bottle and shake it.  Fill the remainder of the bottle with mineral spirits. Add this to the top of the rubbing alcohol and don’t shake!

Next hold the bottle horizontally until clear. Now for the fun part, you can raise and lower the ends to create waves.

Hint: You can use a 2-liter bottle for a bigger ocean so it’s easier to see.

Rock the waves back and forth. Have your children shout “Be Still” to stop the waves.  Discuss that how Jesus proves that he is God’s Son with this miracle, that “even the wind and the waves obey him.”
