The Truth About You…Who I am

I am loved by God

Here is how God showed his love among us. He sent his one and only Son into the world. He sent him so we could receive life through him. Here is what love is. It is not that we loved God. It is that he loved us and sent his Son to give his life to pay for our sins.”

1 John 4:9-10

1 – Easter wasn’t very long ago, why do we celebrate Easter?

2 – Why did God send Jesus to Earth? Not only does He send Jesus to Earth, but He sends Jesus to die on Earth, to die on a cross. Why?

3 – How much does God love you? How do you know? (the Bible tells me so)

If you have the Jesus Storybook Bible, read “Running Away”. Or, grab your bible and read Luke 15:11-32. Or, you can watch this video

4 – In this story, the father represents God and the brothers represent us. How do you think the father felt when his youngest son left home? How did the father feel when the son returned home?

5 – What is the worst, meanest, wrongest thing you’ve ever done? Did you eventually say sorry? Was it easy to say sorry? Were you forgiven?

Jesus told this story so that people would know that no matter what, they can never, ever run too far away from God. That God is always waiting for them, loving them, wanting them to come home.

6 – Ask your parents how much they love you. Make sure you tell your parents how much you love them. And, then think about how God’s love is like a hundred billion times greater than that.

Wow! Amazing!

Let’s try a new song for every week.

The Truth About You…My Superhero

Jesus Died and Rose Again!

“I know you are looking for Jesus, who was nailed to a cross. He isn’t here! God has raised him to life, just as Jesus said he would.

Matthew 28:5-6

This week we celebrated a very special, exciting event. We celebrated Easter! You can read the story in Mark 14-16. What is your favourite thing about Easter?

Jesus’ friends were very excited about Easter, too, but not because of Easter eggs, or chocolate, or candies. They had a whole other reason to be excited, and we do, too! But first…

  1. Why were Jesus’ friends so sad on Good Friday? Have you ever been sad? Does it make you sad to think of Jesus dying on the cross?
  2. Why do you think Jesus was willing to die on the cross and rescue us, even though it’s so sad and was so hard for Jesus? (he loves us and wants us to be close to him and God)
  3. Do you remember when Corrie cracked open the first egg? What was inside the egg? Do you think Jesus’ friends expected Jesus’ body to be in the tomb? What happened when Corrie cracked open the second egg? (it was empty!)
  4. How did you feel when you saw that the egg was empty? How do you think Jesus’ friends felt when they saw that the tomb was empty and the angel told them Jesus wasn’t dead anymore but was alive?
  5. How do you feel when you’re excited? Are you excited about Jesus being alive just like Jesus’ friends were?
  6. So what’s the best part of the Easter story? Is it chocolates or candies or Easter eggs? No! Jesus is alive and we can be close to him! Hooray! (now do a little happy dance!)

Here’s a video you can watch that helps us understand how something so sad can make us so happy.

The Truth About You…My Superhero

Jesus Loves Everyone. (even mean people)

“We love because he first loved us.

1 John 4:19

This week you get two lessons for the price of one! (free that is) On March 26th we heard the story of Jesus healing Simon’s mother in law (Mark 9:29-39), and on April 2nd we heard the story of Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10).

  1. If you could have a super power what would it be? Would it be a super power that could help people?
  2. When Jesus healed Simon’s mother in law he showed everybody he had a superpower and could heal people, how did people react to that? (they all brought people for Jesus to heal)
  3. Did Jesus heal those people? Did he stick around to keep healing people? Why did he tell the disciples he was leaving?
  4. When we meet Zacchaeus was his body sick? Did it need healing? What part of Zacchaeus was “sick”? (his heart)
  5. How did Zacchaeus change after he had lunch with Jesus? Did he stay a mean guy?
  6. Has anyone ever been mean to you? Is it easy or hard to love someone who’s been mean to you? Have you ever been mean?
  7. Jesus will always love us. Always, always, always, no matter if we’ve been mean, or bad, or unkind. He wants to heal and change our hearts to be more like him, that’s why he came to rescue us!
  8. It’s not always easy to love other people, but 1 John 4:19 tells us that Jesus loves us no matter what and, with Jesus’ help, we can learn to love others (even if they’re mean!).
  9. Pray together and ask God to help our hearts to change to be loving and kind, just like Jesus.

Take a look at this video, it’s another story of how Jesus healed someone and the real reason he came (hint: it wasn’t JUST to heal people’s bodies)

Then watch this fun song about Zacchaeus!

The Truth About You…My Superhero

God doesn’t get tired of helping.

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

Isaiah 46:4

Today we heard the story of Gideon. You can review the story by watching this video

or, pull out your Bible. Gideon’s story is found in Judges 6 and 7.

1 – Who needs saving in our story? Why? Have God’s people needed saving before? Do you remember last week’s story (the parting of the Red Sea)?

So, in today’s story the Israelites have once again forgotten about God. And, they are once again being mistreated. This time by the Midianites. And, once again, they call out to God for help. And, once again, God comes to save them.

2 – Who does God choose to lead the Israelites?

3 – Does Gideon believe that he is the right person for the job?

Moses did not believe he was the right guy for the job either, and so God showed Moses He would be with him by turning the staff into a snake and a few other miracles. God was persistent, He never gave up on Moses. In today’s story, the same thing happens. God doesn’t give up on Gideon even though Gideon doubts God. So, remember, that God won’t give up on you either.

4 – How does God show Gideon that He will be with him?

5 – Finally, Gideon accepts the job God has given him. Will you accept the jobs God gives you?

6 – How does Gideon win the battle against the Midianites? Is this how battles are typically won?


7 – God calls Gideon “mighty warrior”. Why does He call him this, Gideon wasn’t a soldier, he wasn’t the biggest or the strongest?

8 – Try to think of other “warriors” in the Bible that go to battle without swords.

The Truth About You…My Superhero

God hears and helps!

“As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me.
Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.

Psalm 55:16-17

This week in Kidventure we talked about how God always hears his people when they call out to him. We learned about when the Israelites (God’s people) called out to him for help and he heard them and rescued them. You can read the story in the Bible starting in Exodus 5 or you can watch this video (it’s a long story to read):

Now that you know the story, answer these questions:

1. In Psalm 55 it uses the word “distress” what does that mean? Were the Israelites in distress and unhappy? (Yes! They were stuck as slaves; Pharaoh made them work very hard and did not care if they were happy, hot, hurt, hungry, tired, etc.)
2. Did Pharaoh want to let the Israelites go? (No, he wanted to keep them as slaves.)                                                                                                   3. Did God hear his people’s cry for help? What did he do? (Yes! God sent the 10 plagues to try to convince Pharaoh to let his family go.)
4. What did God tell his people to do when the angel passed by their homes? (He told the families to put the blood of a lamb above the doors so that the angel would pass by, and they would be protected.)
5. Just like that lamb died to save the oldest sons, who came and died to save us? (Jesus!)
6. What did God’s family do after they were rescued and walked through the Red Sea? (They celebrated and thanked him with music and dancing!)                                                                                                     7. Can you think of a time when you called out to God for help and he heard you and helped you? Pray together and thank God for always hearing us and always helping us.

Then check out the video for the new song we learned on Sunday!

The Truth About You…My Superhero

We need help!

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Romans 3:23

1 – Who needs a saviour? Why?

Well, now that you’ve answered those questions you know exactly what this series is all about. Now, just for fun, let’s go all the way back to the first sin.

If you have the Jesus Storybook Bible, read “The terrible lie”. Or, grab your bible and read Genesis 3. Or, you can watch this video

2 – Did God love Adam and Eve?

3 – Were there any rules in God’s perfect garden? What was the rule? What kind of rules do you have to obey?

4 – Did Adam and Eve obey the rule? Why or why not?

5 – How did Adam and Eve feel after they broke the rule? How did God feel after Adam and Eve broke the rule?

6 – Do you ever break the rules? How do you feel after you break a rule?

7 – Do your parents stop loving you when you break the rules? Does God stop loving you when you break the rules?

Read Romans 8:38-39

8 – Is there anything you can do that could make God stop loving you?

The good news is that the story doesn’t end here. God loves you and God wants you. So, stay tuned as we see God’s Rescue Plan unfold.


Here’s the video from our new song. Be sure to teach your parents the actions.

The Truth About You…My Lighthouse

Jesus is the Light

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”.”

John 8:12

This week we broke down our memory verse.

1 – What is light?

2 – Find a room in your house where there is no sunlight and keep the lights off. What can you see? Do you like being in the dark?

Light allows us to see. Light makes things visible.

3 – What can create light? (sun, lightbulb, fire)

Jesus says “I am the light of the world”. He wants everyone to know that He will make things visible and that He is the only one who can make things visible.

4 – What is Jesus illuminating? What is He showing us?

John 14:6

Matthew 5:1-12

John 13:13-17

5 – What happens when we walk in front of a flashlight? Can you still see which way to go?

The second part of the verse is, “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness”. If we want to see what Jesus has to show us, if we want to see the truth, we have to follow Jesus, we have to walk behind the light. Jesus has to be the leader. And, when Jesus is leading and we are following, we are not in the dark.

6 – Can you create light? Can you shine?

We will talk more about this in a couple weeks so stay tuned.

Here’s our new song.
