(Neighbor comes on stage, waving at the children.)

NEIGHBOR: Hello, friends! Welcome back to MY neighborhood. I’m so glad you’re here! My name is _________ (your name) and I love living in this neighborhood. There are so many (make binoculars around eyes) great people and places in this neighborhood and I can’t wait for you to join me as we visit some more of my favorite places!

NEIGHBOR: In Wonder! Clubhouse this month we’re going to talk about how God calls us to  love one another just like He loves us. This means we need to love our neighbors and other people close to us. Everyone make a heart shape with your hands, like this!

(Make a heart shape with your hands, and allow children to do the same.)

NEIGHBOR: Great! God created us to love and we can use that love to share our lives with our neighbors and worship God together! Today we’re learning, “I can love God and people with what I have!” Repeat that after me:

I can love God (hug self)
(Allow time for children to repeat.)
and people (point out)
(Allow time for children to repeat.)
with what I have! (hold palms out)
(Allow time for children to repeat.)

Main Point Review [0:30]

SLIDE: WCLU Campus Screen Screen Graphic

NEIGHBOR: What a great time at Wonder! Clubhouse! Did you have fun with our neighbor, Brooklyn? Because I sure did! Ollie came to visit the Clubhouse and helped us learn,

I can love God (hug self)
and people (point out)
with what I have! (hold palms out)

NEIGHBOR: We heard a story from Justin the mailman, one of our neighbors! He told us a Bible story about a hurt man who didn’t have anything. One day, Peter and John were walking past the man when he asked them for money. Peter said he didn’t have any money, but he had Jesus. Peter and John loved God and loved people, and they believed Jesus would heal the man to walk. So they told him to get up and walk – and he did! Just like Peter and John, we can love God and love people by giving what we have! Repeat what we are learning today after me:
