Safari :: Week of May 18

WE’RE LEARNING… I can love like Jesus.
MEMORY VERSE: “Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12b (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: A Short Man I Luke 19:1-10

This week we sang a song to remind us that we can love like Jesus. Sing the song with your toddler at home!

Yes I Can! (to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)

I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (clap, clap)
I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (clap, clap)
We can love like Jesus,
and show everyone much He loves us.
I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (clap, clap)

I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (stomp, stomp)
I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (stomp, stomp)
We can love like Jesus,
and show everyone much He loves us.
I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (stomp, stomp)

I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (“Hooray!”)
I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (“Hooray!”)
We can love like Jesus,
and show everyone much He loves us.
I can love like Jesus, yes I can! (“Hooray!”)

Repeat a few times, or as long as your toddler is interested. Say, “Great job! When we love like Jesus, we can show everyone how much He loves them. Who can love like Jesus?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can love like Jesus!”


Quest :: Week of May 18



What would you do if you were assigned a huge building project to manage? Or told to step into the leadership role for an entire nation where every person would depend on you to make the right decisions? How about helping someone else accomplish a big job where you’re not going to get much recognition? Or, do the one thing you would be most afraid of doing, while everyone you know watches?

All of these are pretty big things and would intimidate most of us. However, God can help us do really big things. When our preschoolers are faced with big things, we want them to remember to hop to it, because God will help them.

In this week’s lesson, Aaron and Hur helped Moses hold his arms up so the Israelites could win the battle. 

Ask your child to help you with something this week, such as cooking, completing puzzles, or picking flowers for your home. While your child helps you, talk about how Aaron helped his brother, Moses. God helps us help others, and that’s a big thing!

Motion :: Week of May 18

Throughout history, God has offered strength to help people persevere through difficult situations. Jesus persevered through death itself to make it possible for us to have a forever relationship with God. Because of what Jesus did for us, we can trust Him to help us find the strength to persevere through whatever we face.

This week, we read Hebrews 12:1 to learn that when life gets hard, we can look to the heroes of the faith and see how they trusted God through some extremely difficult circumstances. God brought them through those trials, and God will help us through ours.

God can help you let go of what is holding you back. It’s comforting to know that others have made it through to the other side of difficult times. When we see how God helped them, it helps us trust God more with our own circumstances.

At bedtime, read Hebrews 12:1. Pray that God will help you to let go of what might be holding you back so that you can continue growing into the person He’s created you to become.

In this week’s lesson, Joshua showed us that God will help us be strong leaders.

Cuddle with your child and pray, “Dear God, You are such a strong and wise leader. Help us be strong, wise leaders too. Help us do what You want us to do, even when others don’t. Thanks for helping us do big things. We love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Throughout history, God has offered strength to help people persevere through difficult situations. Jesus persevered through death itself to make it possible for us to have a forever relationship with God. Because of what Jesus did for us, we can trust Him to help us find the strength to persevere through whatever we face.

This week, we took a look at Acts 16:16-40 to learn what happened when Paul and Silas were arrested. They could have given up their calling to spread the message of Jesus. However, even in the middle of this difficult situation they decided to worship God. And when the time came, they had the right words at the right time and helped the jailer and his family start a relationship with Jesus.

You can choose joy when life gets hard. We will all face times when life is hard. How we respond to those situations matters. We hope that kids start to understand that when they choose joy, they can point others to Jesus.

At bedtime, talk about some hard things you’re facing this week. How will you keep going to persevere through those things? Then, pray for each other, that God will help you choose joy right now and throughout the week ahead.
