We had so much fun in Preschool this week! Along with learning how to be thankful, we talked about being in God's family! We used the story of Nicodemus and Jesus from John 3 to show us that are in God's family, and he loves us very much! In Production time, we played the Goody Gumdrops game and answered our 3 questions about the story to win the game! 

Need To Know: "I Can Be In God's Family!"

Christ Connection: Who came from God? That's right, Jesus! God loves us so much that he helps us believe in Jesus. Jesus died for our sins, and when we believe in that, we get to become a part of God's family! God's family is big! Let me see you spread your arms SO BIG! God loves us all so much and wants you and me to be in his family. 

 

Bible Story: Nicodemus and Jesus; John 3:1-17

Nicodemus was a leader in the big city of Jerusalem. Nicodemus wanted to know about Jesus. One quiet night, Nicodemus came to see Jesus. He said, "Jesus, we know You came from God. No one else can do what You do!"

Jesus told Nicodemus that he needed to be born again. Nicodemus didn't understand Jesus' words. But Jesus explained that Nicodemus had to be born into God's family. 

"God loves this world very much," Jesus said. "That's why He sent Me here. I am God's very own Son. When a person believes in Me, that person gets to be part of God's family now and forever!"
