Good morning and Happy Sunday!
Toddler and PreK Story Focus: Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Week two is one we tell as a continuation of the Easter story. Can you imagine what the disciples felt when they saw Jesus standing on the shore after they thought He was gone? Before they knew it, they were sitting around a fire eating the breakfast Jesus had cooked for them. Jesus is really alive, and He wanted to make sure His friends knew He is alive and that He is going to be their friend forever. That’s what we want preschoolers to know—Jesus is alive and He wants to be their friend forever too!
In week two, we look closer at something else Paul wrote in Colossians 3:15: Let the peace that Christ gives rule in your hearts. As parts of one body, you were appointed to live in peace. And be thankful. Because Jesus made peace with us, we can turn around and show that same peace to others. Bottom Line: We can make peace with others. When God made peace with us through Jesus, God showed us that peace with others is possible. This doesn’t mean that it will be easy, but peace is worth the effort it takes to make it. We pray that kids will discover the ways they can live at peace with the people in their life.
We LOVE this week's bible lessons. We hope you do too!
