This Week In Safari Babies :: Jesus loves me.

We’re Learning… Jesus loves me.

Bible Story: Jesus is Alive! ● Matthew 26-28

As a family, read “Jesus is Alive!” (Matthew 26-28) from a children’s Bible. (CLICK HERE for children’s Bible recommendations.) 

After reading the Bible story, complete the activity together.

Song Activity:

  • Say, “God loves us, and He showed us how much He loves us by giving His Son, Jesus. Let’s do an activity to help us remember this truth!”
  • Lead your toddler in singing the song below to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell.”

God loves you. God loves me.
God loves you and me so much,
He gave His Son to us.

  • After the activity, say, “Wonderful job singing! Who loves you?” Encourage toddlers to say, “God loves me!” Then lead your toddler in prayer:

“Dear God, thank You for loving us. Please help us always remember no matter what, You’ll always love us. We love you. In Jesus’ name, amen.”


In addition to reading stories from the Bible each Sunday, we also read a book together that reinforces what we’re learning. This month, we’re reading “The Story of Easter” by Allia Zobel-Nolan. If you’re looking for a faith-based book to add to your child’s library at home, you can learn more about this month’s book HERE


This year, our NextGen ministry is focusing on the names of God. This month, we’re focusing on the name Jehovah Shalom. Jehovah Shalom means the “Lord is peace.” As you pray for your toddler this week, pray they’ll grow up to know God and His peace personally.

Dear God, thank You for loving us. As my child grows up, I pray they’ll get to know you, Jehovah Shalom, and begin a personal relationship with You. Please help them experience Your peace. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.
