Tell your kids: Today we’re going to be reminded that no matter what’s happening around us, God is with us. We don’t need to fear because Jesus is here. We’re going to take a look at some things Jesus did that His friends wrote about. These things are going to remind us that Jesus is powerful and He came to rescue us. He is our Rescuer, our Savior. Never fear, Jesus is here.

Discussion & Activity:
After watching the videos, use the following questions/activities to talk about the lesson.
1. Ask: What are some things you heard about Jesus from the stories that are amazing?
2. Have your kids draw a picture of their favorite scene from one of the three stories. On the bottom of the page, have them write, “Never fear, Jesus is here.”
3. As they draw, talk about it. Here are some ideas to spark discussion:
• Have them re-tell the story they picked.
• Ask them why they chose it.
• Ask: How would you have felt watching Jesus do this miracle.
• How does it make you feel about God?
4. After drawing, get ready to pray together.
a. Ask them, “What are some times you start to fear and need to remember that Jesus is here?”
b. Then say that there are many people afraid in the world today because of the coronavirus. Let’s pray for:
• people who are sick,
• doctor and nurses who are helping them,
• our leaders who have to make important decisions
• our family, friends and neighbors to stay healthy.
c. Pray together. You may want to take turns praying for each other and then praying for these specific needs in our world.

May you remember every day that Jesus is always here.
