"GOING TO HEAVEN OH YEAH" VIDEO TOOLS FOR PARENTS, VBS OR SUNDAY SCHOOLS, AND CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS.

FOR PARENTS

Here are some ideas to add to the fun

Before watching the video

Tell your child that Trish (the person in the video) will teach what’s called the “Going to Heaven Oh Yeah Signs” song.  Let your child know they will want to learn it by singing and doing the sign language with Trish because you will give them a special prize after the video is finished if they sing and sign the song for you (purchase a fun prize ahead of time to give them).

 

During the video:

Sing and sign along with your child.  Have fun together. 

 

After the video:

Have them do the “Going to Heaven Oh Yeah Signs” song and then present them with a special prize.  If they need help with the words to the song, you can help them.  The words are included at the bottom.

 

Further engage the child by asking the following questions:

How many people does the Bible say have sinned - no one/ a few/ a lot/ everyone?

Answer (A): Everyone

 

What were some examples of sin given in the video? A: Lying, being unkind, stealing

 

What did Jesus do for us?  A: Jesus died on the cross and came back to life.  When He did that, He made the way for us to be forgiven of our sins, have an amazing friendship with God right now and be able to join God in heaven someday to continue that amazing friendship forever and ever.   The choice is ours.  Will we accept this amazing gift from God?

 

Who should be in charge of our lives because He knows what’s best for us?  A: God

 

Where do we learn how God wants us to live?  A: The Bible

 

Misc. Ideas for added fun

Race to see who can do the “Going to Heaven Oh Yeah Signs” song faster – you or them.  If you have trouble with the sign language, just sing the song.  You can either sing it at the same time as one another to see who finishes first or sing separately and time each of you to see who has the best time.

 

Look up I Corinthians 13:4 together.  Talk about how the Bible lets us know that God wants us to be kind and what it means to be kind. Each of you create a card for someone that could use some cheering up (as an act of kindness).  Try to think together of someone you know is sick, sad, lonely, etc. that would enjoy a card.

 

Play “find the sin” game

  • Prepare for the game ahead of time by creating a bag for each person  with folded pieces of paper inside. On some of the pieces of paper write a sin on it (like “lying”) and on the others write things that we can do that are not sin (like, “being patient). 

 

  • The game:  You will race one another to the other side of the room where you will have a pre-prepared bag for each person. Each runner will draw one piece of paper from their bag.  If what’s written on it is a sin, they race back and put the paper in a predetermined spot.  If the paper they pick has something on it that’s not a sin, they put the paper back in the bag and pick another piece of paper, until they find one with a sin listed on it.  They run back to put it in the predetermined spot.  Once again, they run back to their bag and draw another piece of paper, until one person has five papers (or whatever number you choose) in the predetermined spot.  They win.

 

  • Ideas for sin:  lying, cheating, stealing, being unkind, being impatient

 

  • Ideas for things that are not sin:  being kind, being patient, telling the truth, being honest, reading your Bible, praying

Misc. Ideas for added fun

Divide the class into two or three groups, assigning a leader to each group.  See which group can do the “Going to Heaven Oh Yeah Signs” song faster.  You can either have the groups sing it at the same time to see who finishes first, or; have each group sing separately and time each of the groups to see who has the best time.

 

Have the students look up I Cor. 13:4. Talk about how the Bible lets us know that God wants us to be kind and what it means to be kind.  Have everyone create a card for someone that could use some cheering up.  Maybe the person they’re thinking of is sick, sad, lonely, etc.

  • Play “find the sin” game - Divide the class into two or three teams.  Have each team form a line and assign a designated leader.  The teams will race to the other side of the room.  At the other side of the room, have a bag with the folded papers for each team. The runner from each team will need to draw one piece of paper from their team’s bag.  If what’s written on it is a sin, they race back to their line, give it to their designated leader to hold onto, then tap the hand of the first person in line, and then they go to the end of the line (please note – the designated leader will not be racing – but only collecting the pieces of paper).  Once their hand is tapped, the first person in line runs to the other side of the room, repeating the previous instructions.  If the paper they pick has something on it that’s not a sin (like, “being patient), they put the paper back in the bag and race back to their line (tapping the hand of the first person in line and then they go to the end of the line).  Once their hand is tapped, the first person in line runs to the other side of the room, repeating the previous instructions.  The first team that gives their designated leader five papers with sins listed wins (or whatever number you choose),
