Have kids share a few pieces from their own cookies with their partners. Paraphrase the story of Jesus telling Peter to feed his lambs in John 21:15-17. Explain that the lambs Jesus was talking about were other people and that Jesus was asking Peter to “feed” God’s love to others. Ask: How can we share God’s love with others just like we shared the snacks with each other? Say: Peter loved Jesus and chose to obey him. After this story, the Bible tells us that Peter went out and told many people about Jesus’ love. We can tell others that Jesus loves them, too. 2. Craft: Lamb Food Have kids each decorate a paper bag to look like a typical dog-food bag, except have kids write “lamb food” on the bag. Have kids think of things they might say to share God’s love with someone. For example, kids might say, “God loves you” or “Jesus wants to be your friend.” Have kids write these phrases on paper strips. Then give kids wrapped candy and have them attach one paper strip to each candy and put the candies into their lamb-food bag. Encourage kids to “feed Jesus’ lambs” (their friends) by giving them candy and telling them how much God loves them this week. 3. Snack: Food for Thought Allergy Alert: Some children have food allergies that can be dangerous. Know your children, and consult with parents about allergies their children may have. You’ll need: 1 1/8 cups peanut butter 3 1/4 cups powdered milk 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 cup granola spoons a large bowl Read aloud Matthew 16:13-19. Then tell children to make Peter “rocks.” Have kids mix together the ingredients and shape the mixture into 1-inch rocks. As children eat, ask them to tell the meaning of their name if they know it.
