Follow God's Light in the World

SUNDAY IS COMING
We are in our regular groups this week. The children will sign in before the service and have their worship and story and activities and playing as normal.

TO READ TOGETHER
John 1:29-42
John is the one who watches for the coming Messiah and then announces his arrival. Some of his followers start following Jesus when John points him out to them. Jesus is the one John was getting people ready for—the one he, they, and we have been waiting for.
Kids this age pick up new behaviours quickly. The latest songs, slang sayings, or dance moves become part of kid culture overnight. Following Jesus is a behaviour kids can pick up too.

TO TALK ABOUT:
Jesus invited John’s disciples to “come and see,” and they became disciples of Jesus. How can you be a disciple and follow Jesus?

TO PRAY TOGETHER
God of light,

You show us how to follow Jesus. 

Be with all the leaders in the world

And all the people who follow them.
(pray for different leaders)

All of our prayers we give to you. Amen.

TO DO TOGETHER
Andrew and Peter spent time with Jesus because they believed he was important and wanted to learn from him. Use chairs and a blanket to make a tent for your family. Crawl in and take the time to learn about something that happened in each person’s day.

BE A TRACKER
Snow is fantastic for being able to follow trails of footprints. As long as the wind settles down a bit you might be able to track all kinds of creatures in the snow. See what you can see out there.
