Here's a fun and easy children's message using finger
puppets to drive home the meaning of this fun kid's Bible
Text: 1 John 4:9-12
Preparation: You'll need a puppet, a heart-shaped
candy box, and a Bible.
Chadwick: I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in
love, I'm in love.
Leader: Ooh, Chadwick is in love! Well, tell us
what she looks like.
Chadwick: I wrote a poem about her: Her eyes
are like stars that glisten at night. Her hair is like velvet, oh
what a sight. Her lips are like marshmallows-gooshy and sweet. The
best part about her is that she loves me!
Leader: Sounds like a cute one to me!
Chadwick: Oh, she is!
Leader: Are you going to give her the poem?
Chadwick: Not this one, but I'm going to write
her a love letter. (to children) Will you help me?
Leader: Sure we will. Have you started yet?
Chadwick: Dearest darling, sweetheart, honey.
I, Chadwick Chester Chipmunk III...That's as far as I've gotten.
What should I put next?
Leader: I love you.
Chadwick: Oh, I love you, too.
Leader: Well, I mean, why don't you tell her
you love her?
Chadwick: Oh, okay, that sounds pretty
Leader: (to children) What else should Chadwick
tell his sweetheart? (Wait for responses.)
Leader: Do you know that God has sent a love
letter to you? Yes, he has. (Open up a heart-shaped candy box to
reveal a Bible inside. Read the Scripture.) God loves you very
much-even more than Chadwick loves his girlfriend...and God loves
you more than anyone else on earth loves you. Let's thank God for
loving us so much.
(Close in prayer.)
