Jesus loves everyone! Since Jesus loves everyone, we should love everyone, too! Our Bible verse during Buckets of Love helps remind us to love everyone. It says:

Love each other (hug self)
as I (point up)
have loved you. (point out)
John 15:12 (open hands like a book)

Goody Goody Gumdrops – Week 7 #Quest

Bible Story: Nicodemus and Jesus | John 3:1-17
Main Point: I can be in God’s family!
Memory Verse: Everyone who is (spread arms up and out) a child of God (point to others) has the power (show muscles one at a time) to win. (cheer) – 1 John 5:4 (ERV)112315_eKidz_Quest_GGGU_MainGraphic-01

Lesson Overview
We had a Goody Goody Gumdrop of a time visiting Grandma Ginger’s gingerbread house and hearing another amazing Bible story! We learned, “I can be in God’s family!” from a Bible story about Nicodemus, a leader in the city of Jerusalem.

Nicodemus wanted to learn more about Jesus, so one night Nicodemus went to visit Jesus. Nicodemus knew Jesus was God’s Son and Jesus told Nicodemus he could be in God’s family by being born again. Nicodemus didn’t understand how he could be born again like a little baby, since he was a man, so Jesus explained to Nicodemus he needed to be born again into God’s family. Nicodemus could do this by believing in Jesus! Just like Nicodemus can be in God’s family by believing in Jesus, we can be in God’s family by believing in Jesus, too!

My Goody Goody Gumdrops
Each weekend children visit the Goody Goody Gumdrops game they can collect main point gumdrops to add to their Gumdrop Jar poster. These gumdrops will help remind us we WIN when we are a child of God! Children can collect 10 gumdrops and bring their Gumdrop Jar poster back to Quest to receive a Goody Gumdrops sweet treat.

Lesson Overview
While playing the Goody Goody Gumdrops game in Quest, we landed on Grandma Ginger’s spot on the board to visit her ginger bread house and hear another amazing Bible story!

This week at Grandma Ginger’s house we learned, “I can help Jesus!” from the story of Jesus choosing his disciples. Jesus was walking one day when he came to two men fishing in a boat. He told them to follow Him so He could teach them how to tell others about God. Then, Jesus and the two men saw two other men fishing. Jesus told the men to leave their boats and follow Him too! Later, Jesus saw a man named Matthew and asked him to follow Him as well. Jesus asked more and more people to follow him and soon Jesus had 12 helpers, called disciples. They told others all about God’s love! Just like Jesus’ helpers, we can tell others about God’s love for us!

Lesson Overview
We had a sweet time in Quest playing the Goody Goody Gumdrops board game! When we reached our favorite spot on the board, Grandma Ginger’s house, we knock, knock, knocked on the door so Grandma Ginger could share a Bible story with us!

This week at Grandma Ginger’s house we learned “I can grow like Jesus!” from the story of Jesus’ childhood. While Jesus and his parents were visiting Jerusalem for a special holiday, they went to the temple to worship God by praying and singing songs with all of their friends. After seven days, everyone started to walk home. After walking all day, Jesus’ mom and dad realized Jesus was not with them! They went back to Jerusalem and looked for Jesus everywhere. After three days, they went to look in the temple – and found Jesus! He was talking to the temple leaders and learning about God, his Father. Just like Jesus grew by learning more about God, we can grow and learn more about God by going to church, praying, and worshipping God!
