STORYTELLER: “Hello friends! Welcome to Quest and welcome to the Wonder! Clubhouse! This month in the Wonder! Clubhouse we’ve Gone Fishin’ as we’re learning all about Jesus, His disciples, and how He taught them to be fishers of men! Wait, fishers of men? How does that even work? Wait, I’ve got an idea! Let’s try to be fishers of men (or women) right now! I want everyone to hold out their hands and hold an imaginary fishing rod.

Show kids how to hold a fishing rod.

STORYTELLER: “Now, on the count of three, I want all of you to cast your fishing rod and try to catch me. It’ll look just like this.”

Show kids what it looks like to cast an imaginary rod.

STORYTELLER: “Ok, now everyone use your fishing rod and try to catch me! One, two, three!”

Storyteller should act like a fish who’s been caught on a line and flop around like they were being pulled towards the kids.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Now, I’m not sure that’s exactly what Jesus meant when he wanted His disciples to be fishers of men, but I know we’ll find out more in the Wonder! Clubhouse.”

STORYTELLER: “Now friends, whenever I say ‘Who can you follow?’ You’ll say ‘I can follow Jesus!’ Let’s try that now! ‘Who can you follow?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can follow Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! You can follow Jesus, and that’s something we want to celebrate! We’re going to sing, dance, and thank God for His love. Let’s stand to our feet as we sing!”

SONG: “Everybody Sing”

Lead children in singing, “Everybody Sing,” with the hand motions.

SONG: “Plan For Me”

Lead children in singing, “Plan For Me,” with the hand motions.

STORYTELLER: “Thanks for worshipping with me, friends. Before you have a seat, tell me, ‘Who can you follow?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can follow Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! We can follow Jesus, just like a group of people called his disciples did! In fact, Jesus said that in our memory verse this month! Watch me say our memory verse, and then we’ll practice it together:

“’Come (motion towards self with hand) and follow me (march in place) Jesus said.’ (cup hands around mouth) Matthew 4:19” (open hands like a book)

STORYTELLER AND CHILDREN TOGETHER: “’Come (motion towards self with hand) and follow me (march in place) Jesus said.’ (cup hands around mouth) Matthew 4:19” (open hands like a book)

Repeat the memory verse with the kids two more times.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘Who can you follow?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can follow Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends! Now let’s check in with Ollie at Wonder! Clubhouse to learn more.”

SLIDE: “WCLU Campus Screen Graphic”

STORYTELLER: “That was great! I’m so glad we learned we can tell others Jesus is special! It looks like being fisher of men, like we talked about earlier, is all about telling people that Jesus is special and inviting them to follow Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘Who can you follow?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can follow Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. We learned that we can tell others about how special Jesus is, just like John the Baptist! Let’s pray and thank God for our Bible story today. Everyone bow your heads and close your eyes.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for your son Jesus. Help us to tell others all about how special Jesus is. We love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

STORYTELLER: “Great listening today, friends! Now it’s time for you to go back to your eGroups, but I’ll see you again next
