CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God gave us Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! The Bible tells us God sent His son, Jesus. Let’s learn our memory verse this month so that we can remember what God has done. I’ll say the memory verse first, and then you can say it after me.

STORYTELLER: “‘God (point arms straight up) has given (extend hands forward) a son (pretend to rock a baby) to us.’ (point thumbs to chest) Isaiah 9:6” (open hands like a 

book)

STORYTELLER: “Now let’s say it together, friends!”

Repeat the memory verse with the kids two more times

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘How do we know God loves us?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God gave us Jesus!”

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

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God gave us Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. God sent us His son, Jesus, as a little baby. Let’s all bow our heads and pray as we thank God for that special delivery!”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for sending us Your son, Jesus. We love you and thank you. Amen.”
