Monthly Focus: Who is the best? (Jesus is the best!)
Bible Story: Jesus Died and Lives Again | Matthew 26:20-30, 27:45-50, 28:1-7
Main Point: God sent Jesus to be my friend forever.
Memory Verse: “Let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7a (NIV)
J-E-S-U-S! We love Jesus. He’s the best!” Jesus is the BEST. He is. Thousands of years ago, Jesus died for each and every one of us. That means He died for you, too. He came back just like He said He would, AND He wants to be your friend forever. That’s what we’re celebrating this month.
In this week’s lesson, Jesus dies on a cross and is buried in a tomb. Three days later He comes back just like He promised!
We have so much to celebrate on Easter! Jesus is the best, and God sent Jesus to be the best friend we could ever have! Not only is Jesus the best friend we could ever have, He wants to be our friend forever! Jesus is the best!

April Memory Verse
This month our Bible verse says God loves us so much that He gave His only Son to save us! Jesus is the very best!
Children can recite the verse every week in April to earn a special memory verse card. When your child receives a memory verse card celebrate with them on learning their verse and put the card on their Quest poster.
“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, GNB (open hands like a book)
Practice this verse together and encourage your child to recite it to their eGroup Leader this week in Quest.
