- SAY: “Today, we heard about twelve of Jesus’ closest friends, the disciples. They loved Jesus and followed Him everywhere. Let’s make a headband with the disciples and you! Decorate the gingerbread person to look like you. (Pause.) Great! Glue it to the strip. (Pause.) Now glue the pictures of the disciples to the strip. (Pause.) Super! I’ll measure it to your head and secure it into a headband. (Pause.) In today’s story, we learned about Jesus’ closest friends, the disciples. Peter, Andrew, James, and John were all fishermen. Matthew used to be a tax collector and collected money. They were all very different. Brothers, fishermen, tax collectors—they all came from different places and different families but were friends with Jesus because EVERYONE can be friends with Jesus. They followed Jesus everywhere and saw Him help sick people, feed hungry people, and listen to children. When Jesus went away, they went everywhere telling everyone that they can be friends with Jesus. We can tell our friends that they can be friends with Jesus, too. Who can be friends with Jesus? [Bottom Line] Everyone can be friends with Jesus.”
