This is our last week to focus on God’s love for us. We’ve seen that God created us, God has a plan for us, God loves us no matter what, and God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to be our friend forever. Just in case that hasn’t made it abundantly clear to our kiddos that God thinks they are pretty special, we’re going to focus on just that with the story of the lost coin.
Before we dive in, I want to remind you that this is the last week for the kids to learn their memory verse. So think of a special reward you can give them if they can say it all by themselves before we jump into learning a new verse next week. The reward doesn’t have to be complicated; you can give them a snack or even just draw a heart or happy face on the back of their hand (be sure it’s a washable marker.)
Start your time with worship. Encourage the kids to stand up and dance while they worship and don’t be afraid to sing and dance with them. After worship we have a Bible Story Video that is fun and interactive. Here’s a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:
Bible Story Focus: God loves me, and I am special to Him. (The Lost Coin • Luke 15:8-10)
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.
Worship – I Like To
Worship – When I Look
Worship – Love Won’t Stop
