Our Elementary kids had so much fun this week learning that we are invited to be Jesus' helpers! We danced to some awesome songs in Production, while playing some fun games to reinforce helping each other, and helping Jesus!
Need to Know: "Jesus Invites Me To Help Him!"
Christ Connection: Jesus taught His disciples to teach others about Him. The good news about Jesus was too great not to share with the entire world! Jesus came to save people from their sin.
Bible Story: Matthew 4:18-22
Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee. He saw fishermen throwing big fishing nets out into the water. Jesus called, "Peter! Andrew! Come, follow Me. I'll teach you how to tell people about God." The two men gladly went with Jesus!
Jesus walked on down the shore. He saw two other fishermen in a boat. "James and John!" Jesus called. "Come with Me!" James and John also went with Jesus. Now Jesus had FOUR helpers!
Later, Jesus saw a man named Matthew. Matthew was working, collecting money. "Follow Me, Matthew," said Jesus. Matthew got right up and went with Jesus. Now Jesus had FIVE friends to help Him!
Jesus asked more people to follow Him--six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve helpers! Jesus taught His 12 helpers many things about God's love. Jesus' helpers told other people what they'd learned about God's love!
