During the Reformation, it was illegal to print a Bible in a language that people could read.  So, the Reformers often had to hide Bibles from church leaders and sneak them to the people so that they could read them.  Activity: Divide kids into two teams.  Have one representative from each team put on an oversized pair of pants over their clothes.  The team will work to stuff a stack of Bibles into the pants.  Then, the two representatives will race around a cone and back.  If time, you can choose new teams and do the race again.
