Hello parents! We are more than half-way through our Goody Goody Gumdrops series! Can you believe it? This week your children played the Goody Goody Gumdrops game in Production. They answered 3 questions about their bible story from John 4:3-42 to win the game! This week we learned about how Jesus loves us SO MUCH from the story of the Woman at the Well.
Need To Know: "Jesus Loves Me!"
Christ Connection: Just like Jesus knew all about the woman, God knows about each of us! God knows the good and the bad. He even knows how many hairs are on your head!! That's a lot, isn't it? Even though we do bad things, Jesus still loves us! He loves us so much that he was willing to die for us. Let's all tell Jesus how much we love him--"We loves you Jesus!"
Bible Story-The Woman at the Well; John 4:3-42
Jesus and His helpers walked and walked. They walked until it was noon. They were hot, hungry and tired. They stopped at a town to rest. Jesus' friends went to buy food. Jesus sat by the well just outside of town.
A woman came to get water from the well. Jesus asked her for a drink. She was surprised Jesus would talk to her. Then Jesus surprised her even more! He told about many things she had done.
She was amazed. Jesus knew all about her! The woman said, "When the Savior comes, He'll talk to us like You are talking to me." Jesus told her, "I AM the Savior God promised to send!"
The woman was VERY excited! She ran back into the town shouting, "Listen! There's a Man by the well. I think He's the SAVIOR God promised to send!"
Many people came to meet Jesus for themselves! They listened to His words. They asked Him to tell them more about God's love! They told the woman, "You were right. Jesus IS the Savior God promised to send!"
