Assembly title
What an Impression

Submitted by
Peter Blezard

Age group
7-14

Brief aim
To illustrate that Jesus always made an impression on the people that he met.

Faith group if relevant
Christian

Resources needed
A selection of balls of different sizes and used for different purposes.

Other details
Take the balls one by one and find out which one bounces the highest. 

Ask the children what happens when the ball hits the ground, looking for the answer that the side of the ball that hits the ground flattens before reverting back to its original shape, so there is no sign that the ball came into contact with the ground.  

Then produce a ball made out of plasticine.  Drop it to show that it doesn't bounce at all, but there is a lasting impression where the ball smacked on the ground.  

When Jesus met with people he always made an impression, but sometimes the people were like the first set of balls, the impression was only fleeting, it didn't last, like the story of the would-be disciples from Luke's Gospel.  

However there were other times when the people were like the ball of plasticine. The impression that Jesus made on their lives lasted and lasted, as in the case of Peter, Andrew, James and John, who were Jesus' first disciples.

Reading - Luke Chapter 9 The would-be followers of Jesus.
