It’s electrifying…our favourite object lesson, BAR none! Complete with FIVE Gospel routines!
We think this is a must-have for any church workers, youth leaders and kid's pastors. But don't just take our word for it, here's what Matthijs Vlaardingerbroek, founder of Creative Kidswork, has to say - "Probably one of the BEST object lessons of all time!"
'I've used it with up to 17 people holding hands. No idea how it works but it's fantastic!' Maurice Porter
The performer introduces a clear tube, capped with two silver ends and invites the audience to guess what it is. Asking for a volunteer, the performer holds one end of the tube and asks the volunteer to hold the other. Nothing happens, and the audience are understandably underwhelmed!
But then, the performer reaches out their other hand and asks the volunteer to hold it. The instant that the hands touch, a connection is made and the tube lights up, flashes and buzzes!
The effect can then be repeated with a whole group of people, with the very last person – the furthest away from the Energy Bar – completing the circuit! Teamwork makes the dream work!
Dan is using this in his own Junior Church work to explore the idea of how we can connect with God individually but how we are strengthened and unified as a group. Kids (and big kids!) love it – a fun prop with a powerful, memorable message!
Make the connection and light up your world!
A hi-tech magic wand (add lots of 'look don't see' where you don't notice it lighting up and buzzing...the kids will be screaming!)
'Anything detector’ – use it to detect a birthday at a party, or to help you choose a volunteer by waving it over the audience’s heads
Use it to measure magic in the air or Christmas cheer in festive shows!
A way of creating a mental connection in any mindreading routine! After a few wrong-guesses, bring out the Energy Bar and use it to ‘tune in’ to your volunteer’s thoughts . Ask them to hold one end, concentrate on their thought and then touch a single finger to their forehead…buzz, flash, buzz, flash! How's that for a brainwave?!
Hold the two ends to make it flash and buzz...
BONUS - We include a black velvet drawstring pouch to keep your energy bar safe in. No more scratches!
We supply FIVE clear Gospel applications in an accompanying 12-page booklet!
1. Making Connections
The Energy Bar is ideal for any message or talk on making a connection – how we connect with God, the Holy Spirit and with each other through fellowship and prayer.
2. Power to the People - The Group Connection
You can go one further and demonstrate this with an entire group of children and adults, forming a human chain ending in a connected circle. When the very last person completes the circuit, the Energy Bar whirrs into life! This is perfect to discuss things like teamwork, unity, belonging and how if one part of the body suffers, we all suffer (break the chain in various places to demonstrate this visibly)
3. (Holy) Spirit Level
The Energy Bar can also be used a visual representation of the Holy Spirit. Explain how, when we invite God into our lives, we connect with the Holy Spirit. ) Even though we can’t see the Holy Spirit, we can see the effects of God’s love running through us.
4. Light of the World
Use the Energy Bar to explain that Jesus is the Light of the World, and a beacon in the darkness. But we need to connect with Him to experience His light!
How to explain the noise? When we truly connect, we learn how to hear God – and how to tell sin to buzz off!
5. Life, Fully Charged!
We live in a digital age, we’re always connected. Connected to broadband, to Wi-Fi, to Facebook, Netflix, iPhones and iPads. But none of these things work without power and energy. Just as we charge our gadgets, we need to charge our faith. Do we feel supercharged or is our spiritual battery drained?
If we ignore God, our faith level dips. But how do we re-charge? A routine linked to modern technology, making the message even more memorable!
- Bright lights and loud buzzing sounds - fun for all ages
- The ultimate object lesson!
- A real talking point, and a way to generate discussion
- Well-made, durable prop ideal for close up or stage
