Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you’re able to celebrate all moms and/or mom-like influences in your life. Think of how much you love them and then think about how much you love your own kids. Well God loves each of us even more than that. It seems unfathomable that a love exists that is bigger than what I feel for my family. What an amazing God!

We started May with how much God loves us because He created us. This week we’ll see that God loves us so much that He has a plan for each of us. Keep working on the memory verse so the kids know NOTHING can separate us from God’s love. When we ask kids, “Who loves you,” we want them to be able to say, “God loves me!

Here’s a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story Focus: God loves me and has a plan for me. (Esther • Esther 2:2—8:17)

Memory Verse: “Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love.” Romans 8:39, NIrV

Key Question: Who loves you?

Bottom Line: God loves me.

Start your time with the Puppet skit then encourage the kids to stand up and dance while they worship. After worship we have a Bible Story Video that is fun and interactive.

Worship – I Like To

After the video lesson and worship, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson. I’ve also included a Mother’s Day craft for the kids to make for that special lady in their life.

Thank you for the opportunity to partner with you in bringing the Bible alive for your kid(s).  I am praying for you and your family. But before we end, I’d like to leave you with one of kids’ favorite songs:

Let Me See Your Alligator

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
