Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Story: Everyone is Someone Today, we are using a book called "Everyone is Someone" to emphasize the point that no matter who someone is, we are called to love them. Then, watch the following video.
Lesson Video: Jesus Loves Everyone
Ask: When do you feel loved...how do you show other people you love them?
Say: We saw in our video that Jesus loves people that other people didn't love. Sometimes it is hard to love people who are mean or are different from us. But we can practice loving those people who are mean by being kind to them and praying for and helping people who are different from us. You know why? Because Jesus loves them and we are supposed to share His love with everyone!
Action for the Kids - Say: When we go to Big Church, tell someone you love them. Then, when you go home today, show your family how you love them. Then, when you are at school this week, be kind and helpful!
Song for Kids: Love One Another
Activity Sheets or Play
After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play something that fits with the lesson).
End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.
