Christ Invites All to Come Unto Him

Christ is no respecter of persons. He loves all of us equally. No matter our race, religion, color, personal personal righteousness or wickedness. He sees us ALL as his! What a beautiful doctrine! Our children need to understand that no matter what they do they are invited to come unto Christ!

Cut out the animal circles on the activity page (cut on the dotted lines). Hide these throughout the room, but keep one of them so that it can’t be found. Cut out the “Invitation List.”

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Tell children that the king of the forest is having a birthday party, and six animals are invited to go to the party! Instruct children to search the room to see if they can find all the animals who are invited to the party. Let children glue the animals into position as they find them.

When children realize one of the animals is missing, gather them for a discussion and ask the following questions:

1) Who is missing from the party? (Name the missing animal)

2) How do we know this animal is missing? (Because it’s on the invitation, we know it is supposed to be there)

Explain that Jesus Christ invites ALL to come and follow Him. Each of our names is on His invitation list and He knows when we are missing. Just like we know ________ is missing from the animals list.

Name each child individually and say the following phrase for each person in the room:

“_______ is on the invitation list and Jesus Christ knows if ______ is missing.”

Now reveal the missing animal and allow children to glue it into position.
