You’ll Need: a Bible
Have everyone stand in the center of the room but instruct them to
split up, males on one side and females standing on the other side.
Read aloud 1 Thessalonians 3:12.
Say: When God’s love fi lls your heart, sometimes
it spills over! We’re going to see which group can show the most
enthusiasm-when you hear the words “down in my heart,” I’ll point
to either the girls or the boys. If I point to your group, shout
out “Where?” as loudly as you can.
Sing or have a volunteer sing “I’ve Got the Joy,” alternating
which group you point to after each line. (Don’t know the tune?
Look it up on youtube.com.)

SING:
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay!

I’ve got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
I’ve got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus
Down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay!

I’ve got the peace that passes understanding
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
I’ve got the peace that passes understanding
Down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay!

After singing, ask: What are signs that someone has God’s joy,
love, and peace in their heart? How does God put his joy, love, and
peace in your heart?

How have you seen God’s love overflow from your heart?

Say: When God’s love and joy are down in our hearts, they spill
out and other people get to see that love and joy, too.
