Bible Story: Jesus’ Death and Resurrection

Mark 16:1-4, Matthew 28:5-8, John 20:3-10, Luke 24:1-12, 36-49

Memory Verse:

Believe in your heart
(cross hands over heart then say ‘Bump, bump. Bump, bump.’)
that God
(point both pointer fingers up)
raised Jesus from the dead.
(raise arms up from sides then say woo-hoo while moving arms from left to right)
Romans 10:9
(open hands like a book)

Question:

How can I be God’s friend?

Answer:

Jesus makes me (thumbs to chest) God’s friend (point up) because I believe (hand over heart) He lives again! (fist pump)

SERIES OVERVIEW

God can’t be friends with sin and wrong choices, but God gave us grace when Jesus made a way for us to be friends with God. Because of Jesus’ great love for us, even when we don’t deserve it, He died on the cross for our sins. We can choose God’s grace and be friends with God by believing Jesus lives again.

FLASH: Flash is an employee at Quest Cinemas. He loves watching movies, and gets overly excited about children going on Bible Adventures!
