Use this Boy Jesus at the Temple Sunday School lesson to teach children about the importance of the church.
Ask children, How many of you like coming to church?
Ask congregation, How many of you like coming to church?
I like coming to church, and do you know who else liked going to church? Jesus!
Bible tells us that one time, when Jesus was twelve years old, His
parents took Him to the Temple, the church, but then, when Mary and
Joseph were walking home from church with all of their relatives, they
couldn't find Jesus. He was missing!
They looked all
over the city for Him and finally found Him at the Temple. Jesus liked
church so much that He had never left when church was over. He just
stayed there, talking to the teachers about God.
when we come to church, and we talk to our pastors and teachers about
God, we're being like Jesus, aren't we? He liked to go to church and
learn about God, and so do we!
Let's pray about that.
prayer: Father God, thank You for this church where we can come and
learn about You. Thank You for our pastors and teachers and everyone
here who helps us learn more and more about You. In Jesus' name we pray,
