Jesus as a boy in the Temple. (information taken from Sermon4kids)

The session started by asking the children if they remembered what we spoke about two weeks ago?" Being tempted by Satan.
Christine asked "Have you ever gone anywhere without telling your parents or have you ever got lost and separated from them? What did your parents do and how do you think they felt?" We then had time for discussion and examples.

Joseph & Mary once thought they had lost Jesus.
Michale read  the following story (Sermon4kids):
When Jesus was a young boy, his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. After the feast was over, as Mary and Joseph were traveling back to their home, they began to look for Jesus, but he was nowhere to be found. When they could not find him, they turned around and went back to Jerusalem to look for him.
Do you know where they found Jesus? He was in the temple. Do you think Jesus was worried or frightened? No way! When his parents found him, he said to them, “Why were you searching for me? Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”

Sometimes you and I lose Jesus. We get so busy in our daily routine that we never give him a thought. Then, one day we wake up and realize that he is gone out of our lives. Do you know what we need to do when that happens? We need to go back to the place we left him. That is where we will find him, right there waiting for us!

Todays Paryer:
Dear Jesus, when we have lost your presence in our daily life, help us to remember that you are still there...waiting for us to come back to you. Amen.

Our activities included a memory game on what Jesus saw in the Temple and a Board Game which had obstacles on the way to reach the temple.
