Lesson Video | Jesus Feeds the 5,000

Say: In the Bible, when the disciples wonder who will feed everyone, Jesus says, "You feed them."

Ask: So, who made it so that there were more fish and loaves of bread? (Jesus)

Who did the work of sharing Jesus' miracle with the other people? (the disciples)

If you were really hungry and someone had some food, would you hope that someone would share it with you?

Have you ever shared your food with someone?

Jesus wants us to share the good things He does with other people. Can you think of some ways you can share the good things Jesus gives you with other people?

Song for Kids: Create in Me a Clean Heart

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 out a story that fits with the lesson).

End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.

(If you need more time)

  • Go around the room and ask the children to share something they are thankful for this week.

  • Ask them if there is anything or anyone they would like to pray for this week.
