Make a treasure hunt: write down clues to lead the children around the church. Get a prize for each child at the end. Gather pictures of stories about faith from the scriptures i.e. Isaac and Abraham, Daniel and the lions den, Stripling Warrior, Noah.
Talk about the meaning of faith (things that are hoped for but not seen). Tell the children you are going on a treasure hunt and there is a prize at the end. At each stop explain a faithful story and how each person "hoped for something that was not seen." At the end give the children the prize.

In life we are given directions and don't know what is in the end. If we follow Him in faith, there too will be a prize for us greater then we could ever imagine.
