Enoch Sunday School Lesson - Enoch Disappears!

Use this Enoch Sunday School lesson to teach kids about going to Heaven.

Needed: Bibles, random objects

Intro Game: “What’s Missing?” Place a variety of objects on the table or around the room. Have students close their eyes and then take one of the objects and put it in your pocket or outside the room. Have students open their eyes and guess what’s missing. Give them hints if they can’t figure it out. The first student to correctly guess what was missing then gets to take the next object. Play until everyone has had a turn taking an object or as long as time allows.

Lesson: (Note: Always allow students to give their answers to the questions before you clarify the teaching.)

We were taking objects out of the room and pretending like they were disappearing. Do you think a person could ever disappear like that?

Read Genesis 5:21-24 (quoted here in the NIV) – “When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah. And after he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Enoch lived 365 years. Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.”

Read Hebrews 11:5 (NIV) – “By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.”


What happened to Enoch? God took him away. He disappeared. People were looking for him but God took him away and made him disappear.

Where do you think God took Enoch? To Heaven.

Why do you think God took Enoch? What was so special about Enoch that he got to go Heaven? The Bible verses we read said that Enoch was a man who walked  with God, and had faith, and pleased God. That means Enoch was friends with God and did all the right things that God wanted him to. That made God happy and God took Enoch to Heaven.

Do you think we can be God’s friends and do what God wants us to do?

What are some things we can do to be God’s friends and learn what He wants us to do? Read the Bible, go to church, pray, etc.

If we do those things and if we really are God’s friend, like Enoch was, then God will take us to Heaven one day and we will live with Him forever and ever.

  1. Grandma has prepared a family lesson based on Enoch. It would also be a good introduction lesson to True Faced by Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, and John S Lynch. You’ll find it here:
