Week 1: Finding Nemo: Jesus Found Me



Introduce 4 actions based on underwater creatures or plants:

Wave hands in the air like seaweed
Wave hands down below like tentacles
Jump and open hands and legs wide like a star shape
Snap hands together in front like a shark’s jaw (with sound effects)

Aim of game: Teacher to call out and act out the various actions and kids to follow. Go faster and faster as the game progresses.

Variation: Tell the kids they have to do the action of what you say, but not follow the actions of what you do. E.g. you may call out SHARK, while doing the JELLYFISH action, but the kids should do the SHARK action.



Nemo is a fish with tiny right fin, which limits his swimming ability. His father, Marlin, is very protective over him.

One day, Nemo was unhappy about how overprotective his father way. He disobeys his father and sneaks away from the reef towards a boat, resulting in him being captured by scuba divers and taken to Sydney, Australia.

This story is about how Nemo’s father travels the oceans, searching for him, battling sharks and jellyfish, rode turtles and sea gulls.


What did Nemo do?

What did his father do to Nemo after all?


Everybody makes mistakes and messes up in life

Sometime in life, we will mess up and make mistakes, like Nemo

Nemo didn’t want to listen to his father. He was trying to get approval and acceptance from outside (friends). He got lost and trapped in the aquarium.

In the same way, all of us have messed up. We have sinned. We chose not to obey God. We tried to do things our own way.

Just like Nemo, we got lost. We got trapped and imprisoned by sin.

Jesus came to seek and save us

Even though Nemo disobeyed his father and got into this whole mess, the father, Marlin, still loved and cared for him. He went all the way out to look for his beloved son.

Remember Psalm 23? We learnt that Jesus is the Good Shepherd. And the Good Shepherd went to search for the one lost lamb. We were the lost lamb. And Jesus came to rescue us. (optional:

In the same way, Jesus left His heavenly glory to come to earth as a baby born in a manger. He left His place on the throne to take our place on the cross. He died as a prisoner and sinner, in between two criminals, so that we can become a child of God.

Jesus didn’t wait until we were good before He came to rescue us. The Bible tells us that “… God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) He came because He loved us, unconditionally, unreservedly.


Always remember that you are Daddy God’s beloved child through Jesus Christ.

No matter what you have done, no matter how bad you are, He will always, always love you.

And when we make mistakes, when we have disobeyed or gone our own way, remember that we don’t have to hide from Him or be afraid — our Father is always waiting for us, and we can always run back to Him.



Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost."
