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! Today we’re going to learn more about how we can tell others about Jesus and share the BIG NEWS about Jesus! 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! Telling others about Jesus may sound hard, but the Bible gives so many good examples of people who are brave, courageous, and told the big news of Jesus, even when it seemed difficult. One of the ways we can tell others about Jesus is by singing songs and thanking Him 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 tell others about Jesus, even when it’s hard! In our story, Paul and his friend Silas were able to tell others the big news about Jesus, even when they were in prison! Wow! If they can do it there, we can do it anywhere!”

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 can tell others about Jesus, even when things are hard. Everyone bow your heads and close your eyes.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for Your son Jesus and thank You for giving us courage so we can tell others about Him. 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!”
