Hi

Talk about

How many children are there in your family? 

How old are they?

How many children in your class at school?

Have you been to another country? 

Do you know anything about children in other countries?

What do they wear and what do they eat for tea?

Story:

Jesus was telling stories and healing people out on the hill side.

Some women tried to get close to Jesus so that he could bless their children.

Those around Jesus said “Go away. Jesus hasn’t got time to talk to children”.

Jesus heard them and said “Let the children come to me and don’t stop them, because children are at the very centre of God’s kingdom. “

He took them in his arms and blessed them. I’m sure he smiled at each one and made them feel very special.  

You may know this song:

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red and yellow, black and white
They are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world
Jesus cares for all the children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They’re all precious in His sight
Jesus cares for all the children of the world

Draw some children around the world.

Jesus Loves the Little Children (with Lyrics)

Pray:

Thank you, Jesus that you love all the children of the world
and that you want each of us to be your friend.
Thank you, God for our wonderful world.  Help us to work with you to look after your creation.
Help us to be kind to others and help whenever we can.
Thank you for smiles that we can share with others.

Love from Joy and the Messy Church team
