Feed His Lambs

Opening Song:"I'm trying to be like Jesus"  Children's Songbook # 78

Opening Prayer : Child

Lesson: Mom
This lesson is taken from the April 2010 Ensign page 2 see it for more details.

Following on from the last lesson: After Jesus had dined with the disciples Jesus asked Simon Peter if he loved him. He said Yes Jesus I lovest thou. Jesus said. "Feed my lambs" (John 21:15)
As followers of Jesus we must help eachother in the gospel. Be kind and help new members, answer questions in primary. Share the gospel. Be kind to others.

How do you care for a real lamb?
Protect from wolves and danger
A safe place to sleep

Who are the Saviour's Lambs? Those who are new or not strong in the gospel.

Opening Song 'Did Jesus really live again?' Childrens Songbook # 64

Opening Prayer : Child

Lesson: Mom

And Jesus rose again after being Cruxified. This is the important message from Easter. Jesus was resurrected as we will also be one day. Jesus died for us and our sins so that we may live with him again.

When he appeared to the apostles they were afraid. But Jesus said Peace be unto you. He showed them his hands and feet.

They gave him a fish and some honeycomb and he did eat it before them (Luke 24:36-42)
