Monthly Focus: Who is the best? (Jesus is the best!)
Bible Story: Palm Sunday | Matthew 21:1-16
Main Point: We can praise Jesus.
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, people praise Jesus by spreading coats and palm branches on the road as He enters Jerusalem.
People welcomed and praised Jesus as He came to Jerusalem. Jesus might not be riding a donkey into our city, but we have lots of reasons to celebrate and praise Him, too! He takes care of us and He loves us so much. There are so many ways we can praise Jesus! Jesus deserves our praise because He loves us so much and He gives us what we need. Jesus is the best!

“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)
