My Brother Jesus Christ
Opening Song: “I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus” (Children’s Song Book # 78)
Opening Prayer: Daddy
Learning about Jesus:
Show this Picture of Jesus or use your favorite Jesus picture.
Ask: “Who is this?”
“What do you know about Jesus?”
“Is Jesus related to us?”
Jesus is our Elder Brother. Jesus lives with our Father in Heaven. He listens to our prayers and helps us when we need him. He came to earth and died for us so that we can live with our Father in Heaven again. Jesus loves us very much and wants us to obey. But, if we make mistakes he has made it possible for us to repent and for our sins to be washed away.
Sing: “’Give’ Said the Little Stream” (Children’s Song Book # 236)
Color the picture of Jesus and talk about him and what he brings to your family.
