STORYTELLER: “Hello, friends! I’m so glad to see you today! I’m so excited to celebrate Easter next week! Red Rabbit is having an Easter party and you are all invited! It’s going to be so much fun! How many of you are excited for Easter? (Allow children to raise their hands.) Easter is when we celebrate Jesus, God’s amazing gift to us. That’s why Jesus is the best! 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 that Jesus is the best 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 amazing singers you are! I love to worship with you, 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 reminds us that God gave us Jesus because He loves us  so much! 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.’” (Open your hands like a book.).

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) John 3:16.’” (Open your hands like a book.) (Repeat several times.)

STORYTELLER: “We are going to have the best time celebrating Jesus this month! Now tell me,  ‘Who is the best?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Jesus is the best!”

STORYTELLER: “Great job! Today is a special day. It’s Palm Sunday! On Palm Sunday, we say, ‘Hosanna!’ Can you say that with me?”

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “Hosanna!”

STORYTELLER: “Wonderful! Let’s check in with Ollie to learn more about Palm Sunday at Wonder! Clubhouse.”

STORYTELLER: “That was great! I’m so glad we learned about how the people waved their branches and praised Jesus as He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. Jesus is the best and we can praise Him too! 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, thank you for the story of when all of the people praised Jesus as He rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. We are so thankful for Jesus and we praise Him too because He is the best! 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. Don’t forget to invite all of your friends to Red Rabbit’s Easter party next week! Bye!”
