GAME: The Lord Says

This game is almost like “Simon says”. Choose two children.

One is the “Lord”, i.e. the one who has the authority and power. What she/he says, the children must do. The other person is an ordinary person. Both will give orders.

Lord: Jump up and down.
Other person: Stop

(Those who stop jumping are out of the game. They should obey “the Lord”, not the other person).

Lord: Turn round and round.
Other person: Stop

You can vary the actions. Those who obeyed the other person or did not obeyed the “lord” are out of the game.



Last week, we saw that when Jesus got baptized, heaven opened, the Holy Spirit came down like a dove, and a voice came from heaven said, “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

We learnt that Jesus is God’s beloved son. Today we are going to learn that Jesus is Lord.


Calling of the first disciples

Jesus went to the Sea of Galilee and saw Simon (who was later called Peter by Jesus) and his brother,

Andrew casting a net into the lake. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

These men were fishermen. But Jesus had greater plans for them. He wanted them to follow him and bring other people to know him. At once, they left their nets and followed him.

When He had gone a little farther, He saw James and his brother, John in a boat, preparing their nets. He called them, and they left their father in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

How many men followed Jesus so far? Four.

Who were they? Peter, Andrew, James and John.

What did they work as? They were fishermen.

You know, these men did not just follow him for one hour or half a day. They left their families, friends, everything they had … and followed Jesus.

Song suggestion: 
I will make you fishers of men 

Driving out the impure spirit

Jesus and his disciples went to a town called Capernaum. On a Sabbath day (the day which the Jews did not do any work), Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach God’s word. The people were amazed at his teaching, because He taught them as one who had authority. He did not teach them like their teachers of the law.

Suddenly, a man in the synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are — the Holy One of God!”

“Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.

The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is happening here? This man is teaching something new, and he teaches with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.


Jesus is Lord

Jesus called Peter, Andrew, James and John to follow him, and they did. He had special plans for them. They saw that He was someone with power and authority. There was something special about Jesus that attracted them to him, and they were willing to give up their families and all that they had to follow him.

The impure or evil spirit recognized Jesus as God. It called Him “The Holy One of God” and asked, “Have you come to destroy us?” It knew that not only Jesus had authority over the all the impure/evil spirits and they had to obey what he said, but He also had the power to destroy them. When He told the impure spirit to get out of the man, it left. It had no choice but to obey.

He taught God’s word with authority. The people were surprised because they heard many of their teachers teach God’s word before, but none of them were like Jesus. As Jesus was God, even at that time, he could teach his word with authority and power because he understood it perfectly — it was given by him.

Let’s Follow Jesus

Jesus calls each one of us to follow him. When we recognize that Jesus is God, he is Lord, we too want to follow him. In Jeremiah 29:11, the Lord says, “ For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Like his first disciples, he has wonderful plans for us.

Jesus has power over impure/evil spirits. When we follow Jesus, he also gives us the same power over impure/evil spirits. We can drive out impure spirits using the name of Jesus. We don’t have to be afraid of them.

Today, when we have Jesus, we have the Holy Spirit who teaches us God’s word. When we understand God’s word and see him working in our lives, we can be used by God to speak his word to others. We saw how Peter, who was full of the Holy Spirit spoke God’s word at the day of Pentecost and about 3,000 people came to know Jesus as their savior.


Ask the children whether there are any of them who hasn’t accepted Jesus yet and invite them to accept Jesus as their Savior. If any, pray with them to receive Jesus.

SONG: I will make you fishers of men

SONG: King of kings and Lord of lords

SONG: He is Lord

SONG: I have decided to follow Jesus


Get the kids into small groups to share how they can share about Jesus to others around them. Pray and bless each one of them.

Get kids in 2 or 3 equal teams, lined up at the back of the hall. Choose one of each team as the king, who will stand last in line. Maybe get some crowns for the king?

Each team gets some paper/card/newspapers; should be 1 pc for each person

Aim: to lay down steps (paper) one by one and create a path to the other end of the hall so that the king can cross.

First person puts down one piece and steps on it. Second person passes him another piece; then third etc. Everybody has to make it across the hall, so they have to keep passing paper and moving forward in the fastest way possible.

Then once all the steps are laid out, and everyone has reached the other side of the hall, the king can cross over.

First team with the king crossing wins.



Today we will start a new series on the book of Mark.

·         In the New Testament

·         One of the 4 books that tell the life of Jesus (known as Gospels) Can you name the other 3?

·         We will look at the life and ministry of Jesus through Mark’s eyes.


Meet John

In today's story, we meet Jesus’ cousin. His name is John.

One day, when John was about 31, God called him for a special job. God told John to tell the people something important:

·         You need to be rescued

·         I have good news — the Rescuer is coming

·         Make your hearts ready for Him!

So John went to the wilderness and started telling people about what God said.

John was quite an unusual man.

·         He lived in the desert

·         He wore clothes made of camel’s hair

·         He had a leather belt around his waist

·         He ate locusts and wild honey

People from Jerusalem and the countryside came to hear him.

They turned to God, and John baptized them in the Jordan River — a sign for them to show that they wanted to follow God and begin a new life.

Someone greater?

The people began to wonder if John was the Savior whom God had promised.

But John told them “NO”. I am just preparing the way for the Saviour

Remember our game? The rest of the team had to prepare the way for the last person to cross. John’s role was to prepare people’s hearts for Jesus.

“After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Someone more powerful than John was coming.

In fact, John said he was not even worthy to untie his sandals — the job of the second lowest servant in a house. (The lowest ranked servant’s job was to wash people’s feet. Did you know that Jesus came to wash our feet?)

John baptizes people with water; but the coming Saviour will baptise with Holy Spirit and fire.

Along came Jesus

One day, guess who wanted to come and be baptised by John too? Jesus

At first, John didn’t want to baptise Jesus because he didn’t think he was worthy; Jesus should be the one baptising John! Besides Jesus had no sin to repent of!

But Jesus wanted to be baptised — it was a prophetic act to show that one day, He will take away ALL their sins and give them His righteousness in return.

As Jesus was coming out of the water, suddenly … Heaven opened, the Holy Spirit came down like a dove, and a voice came from heaven said, “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”


Jesus is God's Beloved

Even before Jesus began his ministry or did anything to serve God, God already acknowledge 3 things:

·         You are my Son

·         I love You

·         I am pleased with You

We are His Beloved too

Because of what Jesus did for us — take away ALL our sins and give us His righteousness in return — we can have a relationship with God as our Father.

And we don’t have to earn His love or favour. He’s saying to all of you now:

·         You are my son/daughter

·         I love you

·         I am pleased with you

Now say it for yourself:

·         I am God’s son/daughter

·         He loves me

·         He is pleased with me

Let’s thank Jesus for what He has done for us!

MEMORY VERSE: Mark 1:11 “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

Get the kids into small groups to share how they feel about being loved unconditionally by Jesus. Pray and bless each one of them.

SONG: Jesus loves the little children

SONG: His banner over me is love

Because of Jesus, I am a CHILD of GOD
(Eph 1)


Eph 1:3-6 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

 Today, we look at what God has done so that we can be called Sons & Daughters of God

Paul tells the people in Ephesus that God loves them very, very much.

God loved and chose us even before the world was even created.

Can you imagine someone loving you before you were even born?

But we didn’t love God. In fact, we were His enemies — we liked to do things our own way.

God still loved us so much, so He adopted us as His sons and daughters.

How did God do that? Because of JESUS.

Jesus died for us, and His blood bought our freedom. His blood washed away our sins.

Because of Jesus’ life in us, we have been made sons and daughters of God.

Because of Jesus, God blesses us and showers His kindness and wisdom on us.

Because of Jesus, we have an inheritance as God’s children.

And as a guarantee of this inheritance, God gave us His Holy Spirit to live in us forever and ever.

So believing in Jesus is not a set of rules — “You must do this. You must not do that.”

It’s all about a relationship with your Daddy in heaven who loves you so much. When you know 

Him as your Daddy, you will begin to love Him more and more, and learn to love Him and do the things that make Him happy.

Tell your friend, “Because of Jesus, I am a child of God.”

Memory Verse: Eph 1:5 Because of His love, God had already decided that through Jesus Christ, He would make us His children. (Good News Version)

Activity Suggestions

Memory Verse search game

Keep it fast-paced, interactive and fun. You can make it a quiz or give out small prizes for correct answers.

Book of Acts

We’ve been going through the book of Acts.

Which book in the NT was it? 5th
Who can name the first 4 books? Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

 Acts of the Holy Spirit

Acts tells us about God’s Holy Spirit working among those who believed in Jesus.
Before Jesus went to Heaven, He gave His disciples a promise and some instructions.
Can you remember what Jesus said? (with actions)

Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

How did the disciples receive the Holy Spirit? God sent tongues of fire during Pentecost, Peter preached and 3,000 were saved.

The church grew and grew with many signs and miracles.

Do you remember any of the miracles?

Peter and John healing the lame beggar.

Angels opened prison doors so the disciples could walk out free.

As the group grew, the disciples chose how many men to help serve the widows and care for the people? Do you remember their names? 7 Stephen, Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, Nicolaus.

Those who believed in Jesus were also persecuted/attacked by the religious leaders.

Who knows what happened to Stephen? Stoned. First Christian martyr (person who died for what they believed)

Even when he was dying, Stephen kept his eyes on Jesus.

They never stopped talking about Jesus.

The believers in Jerusalem were scattered — they ran to Judea and Samaria. But they never stopped talking about Jesus wherever they went.

Who was the disciple who went preaching about Jesus in Samaria? Philip

Who was one powerful person who heard Philip preaching and decided to follow Jesus? Simon the Sorceror

Who was the other powerful person whom Philip spoke to about Jesus? The Ethopian Eunuch.

God showed Peter a vision that demonstration how His salvation was for all people, Jews or Gentiles. What was the vision about? Clean and unclean animals. Who did Peter go to share the gospel to after that? Cornelius and his family.

Jesus showed Himself directly to someone important too.

This was someone who was busy dragging Jesus’ followers to prison. Who was he? Saul

Who can tell me what happened? Saul went to Damascus to arrest the believers; Jesus came as a bright light; Saul was blinded until Ananias came to pray for him. He believed in Jesus and changed his name to Paul. He was used to spread the word about Jesus to the ends of the earth.
Jesus shows Himself to us too. And today, His Holy Spirit lives in us, so we can show Jesus to others too!

How do we know? Because that’s Jesus promise to us in Acts 1:8.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”


Get the kids into small groups to pray for those who do not know Jesus. Get them to discuss how they can share about Jesus with them.
