You are the children that God dearly loves. So follow His example. Lead a life of love, just as Christ did.” Ephesians 5:1-2a

This Sunday we heard from Liz. We heard about her family and her work. She told us that because God first loved her, she can love her kids, her clients and her students.

“We love because He first loved us”. 1 John 4:19


1 – Do you know that God loves you?

Read 1 John 4:7-21

God’s love for us is what comes first. Before we were even born, God loved us and sent His son to die on a cross for us. Once we know this, once we believe this, God lives in us. And, we can take God’s love and share it with others. (verse 10-12)

2 – What can you do to share God’s love?

3 – Who should you love? Read Mark 12: 30-31, Matthew 5:44, John 13:34

4 – So, as we end our series, can you answer the question? What does a follower of Jesus look like? And now, are you ready to be a follower of Jesus? What will you do to imitate Jesus?


The snow is gone. Let’s go outside. Gather your family and head outside for a game of Follow the Leader. Afterwards, pray together. Thank God for His love and ask Him to help you love others.

Followers: Chief Clunis

serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command:’Love your neighbour as yourself’.” Galatians 5:13b-14

This Sunday we talked about Chief Clunis. Chief Clunis leads over 2,000 police officers, it is his responsibility to keep all of us safe. We looked at two things the Chief has been heard to say regarding his work.

“I’m here to serve the community, what do you need?”

“We’re trying to build a strong sense of community within the entire city, with people recognizing that we all need to care about each other. If we’re going to change what we see in our city, it’s going to take a concerted effort from everyone.”


1 – Chief Clunis is a leader, but he tells us that he is here to serve us. Do you know anyone else who was both leader and servant?

Read John 13:12-17

2 – Do you need anything? Does someone serve you? Who?

3 – Are there people in our city who have needs, but no one caring for them?

Read John 13:34-35

4 – One person cannot care for everyone. But, we can all help someone. How can you serve? At home? At school? At church? In your community?


Take some time this week to think of a way you and your family can serve a neighbour. Remember, just like Chief Clunis, we are to follow Jesus’ example.

Don’t forget to practice your memory verse

“You are the children that God dearly loves. So follow His example. Lead a life of love, just as Christ did.” Ephesians 5:1-2a

Followers: C.S. Lewis

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

This Sunday we talked about gifts (or talents). We saw that God gives each of us different gifts. And, it does not matter which gift we have been given because all gifts are important, all gifts meet a need and all gifts are from God. Rather, what’s important is that we share that gift with others. Just as C.S. Lewis did. C.S. Lewis was creative. He had a way with words. He was able to reach many people with his writings.

Her are some C.S. Lewis quotes to get you thinking.

  • “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen:not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
  • “To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
  •  “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching”
  • “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less”
  • “I never exactly made a book. It’s rather like taking a dictation. I was given things to say”


1 – Which is your favourite quote from those given above? Why?

Read 1 Corinthians 12:4-11

2 – Who gives us gifts?

3 – What gift do you think God’s given you?

4 – Which is the most important gift?

Read 1 Peter 4:10

5 – Are you sharing your gift with others, just as C.S. Lewis did? What are you doing?

Pray together, thanking God for the gifts He’s given you and pray that He will show you how to use your gift to serve others.


Don’t forget to check out the videos from last week if you haven’t already done so.

Followers: Charles Mulli

“Suppose a brother or a sister has no clothes or food. Suppose one of you says to them, ‘Go. I hope everything turns out fine for you. Keep warm. Eat well.’ And suppose you do nothing about what they really need. Then what good have you done?”
James 2:15-16

This Sunday we talked about Charles Mulli and read a story about him and his family called “The Biggest Family in the World”.


Many kids thought that Charles Mulli and his family were from a long time ago, but they’re not! They’re alive and living today. Take a look at this video to see all the amazing things God is doing in Kenya with Mully Children’s Family.

We talked about generosity in Kidventure and how Charles and his wife Esther were generous. Can you think of some ways they show generosity to others?

Do you think it was always easy for them to be generous and trust that God would take care of them? What happened when they ran out of food one time? Do you remember? What happened when the new land God gave them ran out of water? How did God take care of them? (answers are at the bottom)

This series is all about following Jesus and trying to be more like him, can you think of some ways that Charles Mulli is becoming more like Jesus? What are some things that you can learn from Charles that teach you to be more like Jesus?

Read James 2:15-16. If Charles had seen the street children and saw that they needed help but did nothing to help them would he have been obeying God? We need to love and pray for others but we need to share and be generous as well.

Watch and listen to this great song about giving:


I like this song because it’s almost exactly what Charles Mulli said to God when he didn’t know what to do with his life, “God, I turn everything over to you, what do you want to do with me?” I also like how the song tells us that giving and being generous isn’t only about giving money. What else does the song say you can you give?

Pray together, thanking God for all the good things we have and that God will give you a heart that is generous and wants to share with others. 

(When Charles and Esther ran out of food to feed their family, they prayed and God sent a woman with a truckload of food for them. And when their new land didn’t have enough water for them Charles prayed long and hard and God showed them where to dig a hole. After digging for two days they struck fresh, clean water. Enough for everyone and all their gardens and crops!)
