Bible Story Video x2: The Lost Sheep + The Lost Coin
Ask: We just watched two videos. Can you tell me what was the same about these videos (things being lost and found, rejoicing when something is found).
Have you ever lost something? How did it feel when you found what you were looking for?
You know, sometimes people can get lost too. Have you ever been lost? How did it feel when you were found?
Say: Because we know Jesus, we have been found! But some people don't know Jesus, and the Bible says they are lost - they don't know about Jesus' Way of Life. So, what can we do to help them find Jesus?
