STORYTELLER: “Hello, friends! It’s so great to see you today! I am so excited about this month! Do you know why? It’s Easter month! Easter is when we celebrate Jesus, God’s amazing gift to us, so when I ask you this very important question, ‘Who is the best?’ I want you to say, ‘Jesus is the Best!’ Let’s try it. ‘Who is the best?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus is the best!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! We can celebrate Jesus when we worship Him! Stand up and sing with me, friends!”

SONG: “Jesus Is The Best, Oh Yes” 

Lead children in singing, “Jesus Is The Best, Oh Yes,” with the hand motions.

SONG: “My God is Number One” 

Lead children in singing, “My God is Number One,” with the hand motions.

STORYTELLER: “What wonderful singers you are! Thanks for worshipping with me, friends! You can sit down now. (Pause.) Tell me, ‘Who is the best?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus is the best!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! Jesus is the best! Our memory verse tells us about the awesome gift that God gave us. Watch me say our memory verse with the motions first, and then you can do it with me! ‘God (point up) loved the world (circle hands over head) so much (spread arms wide) that He gave (place hands together and extend forward) His only Son. (hold arms like rocking a baby) John 3:16.”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “‘God (point up) loved the world (circle hands over head) so much (spread arms wide) that He gave (place hands together and extend forward) His only Son. (hold arms like rocking a baby) 1 John 4:7a.’” (Open your hands like a book.) (Repeat several times.)

STORYTELLER: “Great job! Jesus is God’s amazing gift to us. We are going to have the best time celebrating Him this month! Now tell me,  ‘Who is the best?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus is the best!”

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

STORYTELLER: “That was great! I’m so glad we learned about how Jesus served the disciples by washing their feet. Jesus shows us that we can serve others! Remind me again, ‘Who is the best?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus is the best!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! Let’s pray and thank God for our Bible story today and for giving us the best gift ever! Everyone bow your heads and close your eyes.”

STORYTELLER:“Dear God, we are so thankful for Jesus and the way He served others. He’s the best! Help us to follow Jesus and serve others this week. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

STORYTELLER: “Great listening today, friends! I hope you had fun at Wonder! Clubhouse, learning about Jesus. It’s time for you to go back to your eGroups, but I’ll see you again next time. Bye!”
