STORYTELLER: “Hello friends! Welcome to the Wonder! Clubhouse and welcome to our series BIG NEWS! On the count of three, I want everyone to yell BIG NEWS!”

With the kids, yell “BIG NEWS!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job, everybody! I heard that today in Wonder! Clubhouse, we’re going to learn that the BIG NEWS can actually change our whole lives! Wow! On the count of three, I want you to yell, louder than before, BIG NEWS! One, two, three!”

With the kids, yell “BIG NEWS!”

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

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can tell others about Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! But here’s the cool thing — we don’t have to just tell others about Jesus, we can show others about Jesus by being kind, loving others, and living our lives the way Jesus did! One of the ways we can do this is by singing songs and thanking Jesus for what He’s done. Let’s do that now! Stand to your feet and let’s sing!”

SONG: “Everybody Sing”

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

SONG: “Jesus Is Alive”

Lead children in singing, “Jesus is Alive,” with the hand motions.

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

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can tell others about Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! We can share the BIG NEWS about Jesus! In fact, that’s exactly what Jesus told us to do in this month’s memory verse. Watch me say our memory verse, and then we’ll practice it together:

‘Go (run in place) and make (pound fist into palm) disciples (point out) of all nations.’ (extend arms overhead in a circle) Matthew 28:19” (open hands like a book)

STORYTELLER, THEN CHILDREN: “‘Go (run in place) and make (pound fist into palm) disciples (point out) of all nations.’ (extend arms overhead in a circle) Matthew 28:19” (open hands like a book)

Repeat the memory verse with the kids two more times for understanding.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘Who can tell others about Jesus?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can tell others about Jesus!”

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

STORYTELLER: “That was great! I’m so glad we learned that we can live for Jesus! In our story, Saul, or Paul, learned the BIG NEWS! that Jesus is alive. Afterwards, he spent the rest of his life living for Jesus and telling others how awesome Jesus is!”

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘Who can tell others about Jesus?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “I can tell others about Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. We learned that we can live for Jesus, just like Paul decided to in today’s Bible story! Now, we’re going to pray to God and thank Him for sending us His son, Jesus. Everyone bow your heads and close your eyes.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for Your son Jesus and thank You for letting us show others who Jesus is by how we live our lives. 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 time!”
