Lesson 30: Jesus Christ Loves Each of Us

Lesson

The purpose of Primary 3 Lesson 30: Jesus Christ Loves Each of Us is to know that Jesus loves and bless all children everywhere.

Teaching Thoughts

  • If you have a younger class, try one of these 2 file folder games. This one from Kimberly Bourne Designs points out all the ways we know Jesus and Heavenly Father love us. The one from Green Jell-O with Carrot includes several different children.
  • Start the lesson out by giving out hugs and heart stickers and telling each child that Jesus and Heavenly Father love them.
  • Cover a piece of cardboard with foil and write on it, "Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me" so it's like a mirror.  Let each child decorate it with some heart or other fun stickers then practice saying the phrase together.
  • Use the Where in the World activity included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.
