|Memory Verse:||Ephesians 2:10|
|Preschool Bible Lesson:||God Loves Us (The 99 and the 1)|
Key Item: Salad
The salad should be made of stuff that both human children and sheep will willingly eat: lettuce, carrot, maybe cucumber, ...
Explain to the children that while sheep mostly eat grass, they can also eat other vegetables, like lettuce or carrots – whatever the shepherd finds for them. If we are God's sheep, we need to be fed too. What does it mean to feed God's sheep? That's what tonight's lesson is about.
Real sheep mostly eat grass, but they can also eat salad (lettuce, carrots, etc.) – whatever the shepherd finds for them.
If we are God's sheep, we need to be fed too. That's what our Bible lesson tonight is about.
Additional Snack Items:
To make the snack more substantial, we served macaroni and cheese and ice cream floats, alongside the salad. We also provided Kool-Aid to drink.
