Older Elementary Children’s Message: Happy Meal (Communion) Bring a McDonald’s “Happy Meal” box. Put enough bread for all your kids, a container of juice, and a Happy Meal toy in the box. Show the Happy Meal. Ask: What is this? How many of you have ever had one of these? What’s your favorite part of a Happy Meal? Show them the toy. Say: Did you know our church has happy meals, too? We really do! I have the church’s happy meal right in here. What do you think is in it? Wait for responses and then pull out the bread and juice. Say: Our church’s happy meal is called communion (or your church’s term). We’re happy when we eat it because it helps us remember Jesus’ life and death. I want you to remember Jesus, so here’s a part of our happy meal for each of you. Distribute the bread out of your Happy Meal box. Read 1 Corinthians 11:23-26. Say: Let’s pray. Thank you, God, for Jesus’ death and resurrection. Thank you also for communion as a reminder of what Jesus has done for us. Amen. Neil MacQueen is an associate minister for children in Illinois.
