Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Story: We'll Catch People - Whirl Story Bible Today, we are learning about the miracle of the fish and how Jesus called the disciples to fish for people! Then, watch the following video.
Lesson Video: Jesus Calls Peter
Ask: Have any of you been fishing before? What do you do when you go fishing?
Say: Jesus doesn't want us to actually go fishing for people with fishing poles or nets. What Jesus wants is for us to tell the Good News about Him to everyone! When we tell people the good news, they don't always listen - kind of like when a fish doesn't bite or swim into the net. But when people listen to the Good News, they get to join God's family!
Action for the Kids - Say: Think of someone this week who might like to hear about Jesus. We can tell people about Jesus, but we can also show them His love by helping and being kind!
Song for Kids: I Believe in Jesus
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.
