Bible Story: Zacchaeus Luke 19:1-10
Main Point: Jesus loves everyone even when we do something wrong!
Memory Verse: Love each other as I have loved you. John 15:12
February is the month of love. This month we’ll learn about Jesus’ love for us and everyone! His love is huge and will never fail; it is always there. And Jesus wants us to love everyone, too. He taught us how we should treat others by the way He loved everyone. Not only that, Jesus wants us to tell others He loves them. He wants us to go and tell about His GREAT love for everyone!
This weekend at Wonder! Clubhouse we learned, “Jesus loves everyone even when we do something wrong!”
Jesus wanted to spend time with Zacchaeus! Zacchaeus and the townspeople were very surprised Jesus wanted to spend time with Zacchaeus. But Jesus is special because Jesus loves us all the time, even when we do something wrong.
Buckets of Love
Each weekend children visit Quest during the month of February they can collect main point hearts to add to their Buckets of Love poster. These hearts will help remind them Jesus loves everyone! Children can collect six hearts and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.
