Hope Little Kids
This week’s Bible story is about how Jesus made breakfast for His friends, the disciples, on the beach. Jesus wanted His friends to know that He is alive and wants to be their friend forever. Jesus loves all of His friends, more than we can even imagine! Jesus’ love is so big we can’t even measure how wide or long or high or deep it is.
Guess what the best part of the story is? Jesus is alive, and He wants to be your friend forever, too!
Who wants to be your friend forever? Jesus wants to be my friend forever!
Our memory verse tells us that Jesus loves us long, deep, high, and wide! Make it personal with your Little Kid by memorizing the monthly memory verse together using the fun motions.

If you’ve ever played on a team, then you know how important it is for everyone to work together and do their part. In fact, that’s the way God made us to live, in every part of our lives. He made us to live in peace with each other. That’s what the apostle Paul wrote about in his letter to the Colossians.
When God’s peace is in our hearts, it makes us want to live in peace with others. After all, God set the example when He made peace with us by sending Jesus. And because God made peace with us, we can make peace with others.
Sometimes, it can be tough for us to live in peace with each other. But we know God is always there to help us. After all, He made us to live in peace with each other. He sent Jesus so that we could have true peace that will never end. He can help us make peace with the people around us, too.
Make it personal with your Big Kid by sharing about a time when you had a conflict with someone and chose to make peace with them. Were you the first to apologize? Did you compromise? Did you listen more intently to gain a different perspective? Did you find a solution that satisfied everyone? Help kids see that they’re designed to be creative and can initiate the peacemaking process by letting God guide their hearts.
Let us do all we can to live in peace, and let us work hard to build up one another.
