Safari :: Week of March 18

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can love everyone.
VERSE FOCUS: “Love one another.” John 13:34 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: The Greatest Commandment I Matthew 22:34-40

This week during the experience we played a game to help us remember that we can love everyone. To play at home, draw a heart on a piece of paper and play music playing in the background. 

Say to your toddler, “Let’s play a fun game. Come sit with me on the floor.”

Say, “We are going to pass the heart while the music plays. When the music stops, if you have the heart, say ‘I love you!’ Are you ready? Let’s play!”

Pass the heart and say, “I love you!” After playing for a few minutes say, “That was so much fun. We can love everyone.”


Safari :: Week of March 11

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can love everyone.
VERSE FOCUS: “Love one another.” John 13:34 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: The Greatest Commandment I Matthew 22:34-40

During our time in Safari we sang a song to help us remember we can love everyone.

This week sing it with your toddler to the tune of, “Are You Sleeping?”

          Jesus loves everyone. Jesus loves everyone.
          I can too. I can too.
          Jesus loves everyone. Jesus loves everyone.
          I can too. I can too.

Help your toddler remember he or she can love everyone, just like Jesus does!


Safari :: Week of March 4

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can love everyone.
VERSE FOCUS: “Love one another.” John 13:34 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: The Greatest Commandment I Matthew 22:34-40

This month we are learning, “I can love everyone.” We read the story of The Greatest Commandment in Matthew 22:34-40. Some men were walking along a road when they asked Jesus, “What is the most important rule we should know?” Jesus told them to love God with all of your heart. He said we should love other people, too. In the Bible story, Jesus taught the men it was important to love everyone and we should love everyone, too.

Meal Time Mat - March

We made a Bible story mat to help us remember we can love everyone. Place the Meal Time Bible Story Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your child:

  • What do you see in the picture? (Jesus talking to the men.)
  • What did God teach us in the story of The Greatest Commandment? (We can love everyone.)

Say, “Just like Jesus loves everyone, we can love everyone, too.”


Quest :: Week of March 4

Bible Story: Good Samaritan | Luke 10:25-37
Main Point: I can love by helping.
Memory Verse: “Let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7a (NIV)

It’s time to pull out all the construction tools and get ready to build into kids a love for others. The Bible is full of great examples of how to love others. Whether we are loving by helping or sharing what little we may have, we can love like Jesus, with an unconditional love.

In this week’s lesson, Jesus tells a story about a Samaritan man who stops to care for a stranger who was robbed.

Two men passed right by the man who was hurt without stopping to help. But the man on the donkey, who was called a Samaritan, knew he could love by helping. He loved the man like Jesus loves us because he stopped to help. Jesus loves everyone, and He wants us to show people love, too! A great way we can show love is by helping everyone who needs help.

Family activities to review the lesson lesson with your child this week:

  • At BathTime as you wash your child’s arms and legs, talk about how the Samaritan man washed and cared for his hurt neighbor’s arms and legs.
  • At PlayTime take pictures of your neighbors with your child and talk about who Jesus said is our neighbors and how we can love them all!
  • This month, wake your child to, “Rise and shine! It’s a great day to love one another!”

March Memory Verse

This month our Bible verse says God loves us and He wants us to show that love to others! Let’s practice our verse together! Children can recite the verse every week in March to earn a special memory verse card. When your child receives a memory verse card celebrate with them on learning their verse and put the card on their Quest poster.

“Let us love (hug self)
one another (point to others),
for love (hug self)
comes from God.” (point up)
1 John 4:7a (open hands like a book)

We can love others because God loves us! Practice this verse together and encourage your child to recite it to their eGroup Leader this week in Quest.


Safari :: Week of February 25

MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus loves you.
VERSE FOCUS: “How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:18 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus and the Children | Luke 18:15-17

Today during the worship experience we colored a heart on the back of your toddler’s weekly newsletter.

Say, “Jesus loves us so much.” Hold up the heart coloring sheet on the back of the newsletter.

Say, “Hearts mean love and Jesus loves us so much. At church you colored in the heart so it would be full, just like our hearts are full of Jesus’ love.”

Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus loves me.”
