Bible Story: Jesus at the Temple | Luke 2:41-52
Main Point: I can follow Jesus by loving God and others!
Memory Verse: “‘Come and follow me,’ Jesus said.” Matthew 4:19
We started a new series this weekend called Wonder! Clubhouse: Follow Me! Jesus called ordinary men to live an extraordinary life with a simple invitation: follow me. They did. And we should, too. Jesus’ life on Earth was an example of how to love God and other people. We can still choose to follow Jesus today by living according to His example. Following Him is the best decision we ever make!
Each weekend children visit Quest during the month of March, they can collect Main Point Eggs to add to their Follow Me poster. These eggs will help remind them to follow Jesus’ example by loving God and others! Children can collect six eggs and bring their poster back to Quest to receive a special prize.
Memory Verse – Matthew 4:19
Join us in helping your child learn our memory verse, Matthew 4:19. Children can recite this verse every week during the series to earn bonus eggs for their Follow Me poster.
‘Come (spread arms wide)
and follow me,’ (march in place)
Jesus said. (cup hands around mouth)
Matthew 4:19 (open hands like a book)
Knowing this verse helps children learn that following Jesus and living like Him is the best choice we can make! Help your child practice this verse at home then Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend.
1 REMEMBER: Where did Jesus stay behind after His parents left? (the Temple)
2 THINK: Why did Jesus stay behind? (He enjoyed talking to people about God.)
3 FOLLOW: How can we follow Jesus’ example? (We can show love to God and other people!)
