Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Today, we are learning about a new commandment (i.e. a rule from God) that Jesus gave us to follow.
Lesson Video: "Love one another as I have loved you"
Ask: How did Jesus show people that He loved them in our video? (He healed, forgave, and welcomed people). How does Jesus show us today that He loves us? (By forgiving us, reminding us of His love through the Bible and through other people).
Ask: What do you think "love" means?
Say: Because Jesus loves us, He tells us to love other people. Tell me some ways you show other people that you love them...
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.
