STORYTELLER: “Hello friends! Welcome to Quest and welcome to the Wonder! Clubhouse! I’m so excited because it’s Easter time and Easter is the best day because we get to tell EVERYONE that Jesus is alive, and that’s pretty BIG NEWS! On the count of three, I want everyone to yell BIG NEWS! Ready? One, two, three!”

With the kids, yell “BIG NEWS!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job, everybody! I know that in the Wonder! Clubhouse, we’re going to learn more about this, so let’s do it again! One, two, three!”

With the kids, yell “BIG NEWS!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right, we’re going to learn more about the big news that Jesus is alive.”

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! We can all tell others about Jesus and we can start by telling them that Jesus is alive, which is something we can all celebrate together. In fact, let’s do that now! I want everyone to sing, dance, and thank God for His son, Jesus. Let’s stand to our feet as we 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! that Jesus is alive. In fact, that’s exactly what Jesus told us to do in our memory verse this month. 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 Wonder! Clubhouse to learn more.”

STORYTELLER: “That was great! I’m so glad we learned that Jesus is alive! Because Jesus is alive, we should share that with others and let them know the BIG NEWS!”

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 Jesus is alive and that’s pretty BIG NEWS that we can share with everybody! 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 the big news that Jesus is alive. 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! Happy Easter!”
