Children’s Message: Follow the Leader

In this children’s message, kids play Follow the Leader as they learn about following the real leader—Jesus!

Scripture: John 12:26

Supplies:

Follow the Leader

Play Follow the Leader several times with different leaders.

Say: Follow the Leader can be lots of fun. Which do you like best—following or leading? We follow people a lot—even when we’re not playing a game.

Ask:

  • Who are people you follow?
  • Who are people you don’t want to follow?

Say: There’s one person we can follow who always leads us the right way.

Read aloud John 12:26.

Say: Jesus wants us to follow him. He loves us so much that he died and rose to save us from our sins. He’s the best leader ever.

Ask:

  • Is it always easy to follow Jesus? Why or why not?
  • How can we help each other follow Jesus?

Pray: Thank you, Jesus, for being a leader we can always trust and follow. Amen.

For Extra Impact

  • Have kids lead one another in doing silly actions. Then compare how that is like or unlike how Jesus leads us.
  • Have kids share ways they’ve followed Jesus at school or at home.
  • Tell kids about a time God’s leading was very clear to you.
