Bible Story
Jesus is Alive!
Matthew 26-28


Series Overview
God created us for friendships. He wants us to have friends, and He wants us to be a good friend to others. In fact, He wants it so much, God sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to show us how to be a good friend and make a way for us to be friends with Him forever. This month, we hope children will learn that Jesus is their friend — the best friend they will ever have!

“A friend (point to others)
loves (hug yourself)
at all times.” (circle arms overhead)
Proverbs 17:17, NIRV (open hands like a book)

Series Overview
We can’t always understand why some things happen. But we can believe in a God who keeps His promises. We can have hope, even in the toughest times, because we know He can make something good out of something bad.

Virtue: Hope
Believing something good can come out of something bad.

Memory Verse
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart!
