STORYTELLER: “Hello friends, and welcome to Quest and Wonder! Clubhouse, where we’re going to the Sweet Shop to learn the sweetest news of all – that Jesus loves you! This month we’re exploring the different ways Jesus showed His love to everybody around him, and why we should too! This month, whenever I say ‘Who does Jesus love?’ You’ll say ‘Jesus loves everyone!’ Let’s try that now! ‘Who does Jesus love?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus loves everyone!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! Jesus loves everyone and that’s something we want to celebrate! We’re going to sing, dance, and thank God for His love. Let’s stand to our feet as we sing!”

SONG: “Friends Forever”

Lead children in singing, “Friends Forever,” with the hand motions.

SONG: “No Matter What”

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

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus loves everyone!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! The Bible shows us over and over that Jesus loves everyone, no matter what they looked like, where they came from, or what they did. In fact, our memory verse tells us that same thing! Watch me say our memory verse, and then you’ll repeat it after me.

“‘Love each other (hug self) as I (point up with both fingers) have loved you.’ (point out) John 15:12” (open hands like a book)

STORYTELLER: “I’ll say it one more time and then you can repeat after me!”

STORYTELLER: “’Love each other (hug self) as I (point up with both fingers) have loved you.’ (point out) John 15:12” (open hands like a book)

STORYTELLER AND CHILDREN: “’Love each other (hug self) as I (point up with both fingers) have loved you.’ (point out) John 15:12” (open hands like a book)

Repeat the memory verse with the kids two more times.

STORYTELLER: “Great job, friends! Let’s say it one more time, ‘Who does Jesus love?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus loves everyone!”

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

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘Who does Jesus love?’”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus loves everyone!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. We learned that Jesus loves everyone, even people who were different than him! Let’s pray and thank God for our Bible story today. Everyone bow your heads and close your eyes.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for your son Jesus and how He loves us, no matter what. Help us show that same love to everyone we meet! We love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
