Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Today, we are learning about promises.
Story: God's Friend pg. 42 - Jesus Calling Bible Storybook
Lesson Video: Jesus in the Wilderness
Ask: Have you ever promised to do something for someone? Did you keep your promise? Do you always keep your promises? What about when people promise to do something for you? Do they always keep their promises?
Say: Sometimes we break our promises, but God never does. God always keeps His promises - even though He may keep them in ways that we don't always understand. One promise we're still waiting for is Jesus' return! It's taking a long time, but because Jesus promised He would come back, we can trust Him. God is trustworthy!
Action for the Kids - Say: It's a good idea to do things if we say we'll do them without even promising to do them. This week, do your best to do the things you say you'll do. That's how God wants members of His family to act. He wants us to be trustworthy like He is.
Song for Kids: God's Family
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.
