For Kids: Jesus the Way | Easter 5 | Year A
Updated: May 6
Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Big Idea: Jesus is making something wonderful for us.
Story: "God's House" | Spark Story Bible, pg. 448
Ask: What do you imagine living with Jesus to be like?
Say: So, what is the place that Jesus is preparing for us going to be like? Let's watch a video that can help us imagine it...
Lesson Video | Re-Creation
Ask: When Jesus comes back, we'll all get to live with Him forever. Which part are you looking forward to most?
When the disciples asked where Jesus was going and which way He was taking to get there, Jesus said that He is the Way. What do you think Jesus means that He is the Way? (To get to where He is going, we follow Him and do what He did)
How can we follow Jesus?
Say: Jesus is getting the Re-Creation ready for us right now. We'll get to live with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit forever and it will be awesome. Let's remember this week to thank Jesus for thinking about us and loving us enough to make a place for us to live with Him forever - and that Jesus tells us the Way to get there!
Let's now sing a song about Jesus...
Song for Kids: I AM The Way
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.
