Sherwood Kids:

  • -Reflect: When the crowd was planning to stone the woman who had sinned, Jesus tells them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her,” and no one threw any stones! Think about the lesson Jesus was trying to teach the crowd that day.

  • Ask: Is anyone without sin? Who was the last person left standing with the woman, and what did he do?

  • Activity: Stone Painting – Find a rock or stone and give it some new life! You can paint a cross, the word FORGIVENESS, or decorate it in any way that reminds you of today’s lesson.


  • Why (and what) did Jesus write on the ground? (8:6)
  • Why could only someone without sin cast the first stone? (8:7)
