Sunday School 4

Greeting Welcome each child as they come in the door. Make sure they have nametags, and the parent has signed them on the sheet.

Opening:   Sign of the Cross, Our Father,  “God made all the birds that soar, God made all the lions that roar.”

Development: ART (ask the children what they SEE. There are no wrong answers)

Scripture: In the Bible God talks to us about love and friendship. God tells us that it is wonderful to have good friends. (Cf. Sir 6:14:15)

After closing the Bible say … A friend is also someone you can talk to. God is our friend. We talk to God when we pray. And God is always ready to listen to what we have to say.

Saint: Guardian Angels, “He Has given his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways” (Ps. 91) Both the Old and the New Testament recognize that God gives each person born into this world an angel guardian. Jesus, calling a little child to him, said that the angels in heaven watch over children such as this one. By a loving providence God reaches into human life to guard and, protect and lead us on our way to salvation.

Story:  Jesus appears to two disciples. Luke 24:36-46

Activity: Happy friends day card, / friendship chains Construction paper, scissors, glue/glue sticks, and markers. On the construction paper write sentences or words that reflect friendship. Cut lengths make a ring by glueing them into a circle. Continue this until each child has a link the rings forming a chain.

Song: Jesus loves me/ Jesus loves the little children (sign language optional)

If I Had A Hammer

Words and music by L. Hays and P. Seeger

If I had a hammer

I’d hammer in the morning

I’d hammer in the evening … all over this land,

I’d hammer out danger

I’d hammer out a warning

I’d hammer out love between all of my brothers and my sisters

All over this land.

If I had a bell

I’d ring it in the morning

I’d ring it in the evening … all over this land,

I’d ring out danger

I’d ring out a warning

I’d ring out love between all of my brothers and my sisters

All over this land.

If I had a song

I’d sing it in the morning

I’d sing it in the evening … all over this world,

I’d sing out danger

I’d sing out a warning

I’d sing out love between all of my brothers and my sisters

All over this land.

If I’ve got a hammer

And I’ve got a bell

And I’ve got a song to sing … all over this land,

It’s a hammer of justice

It’s a bell of freedom

It’s a song about love between all of my brothers and my sisters

All over this land.

Its a Small World

Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

It’s a world of laughter

A world of tears

It’s a world of hopes

And a world of fears

There’s so much that we share

That it’s time we’re aware

It’s a small world after all

There is just one moon

And one golden sun

And a smile means

Friendship to ev’ryone

Though the mountains divide

And the oceans are wide

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small, small world
