    Props Needed: Dumbo Story Book

    Read a short version of the story ofDumbo.Dumbowas born with big ears that he wasembarrassed about, but it was his big earsthat he could use to fly. Just like Dumbowas made special God has made eachone of us very special and he has a veryspecial plan for each of us.There is a story in the Bible of a manname John. God knew John before he wasborn and He had a special job for John todo when he grew up. Johns mum anddads names were Elizabeth and Zacha-rias. They taught John about God. Johnwas different to many people because heate grasshoppers and honey and hisclothes were made from a camel.The special job God had for John was forhim to tell others about Jesus and getthem ready to meet him.God wants you to grow up and be just likeJesus and serve him.Remind children that God loves them very

    much and he has a very special plan foreach one of them!

    Props Needed: Picture of Dumbo, Grasshopper

    Dumbo was born with big ears that he was embarrassed about,but it was his big ears that he could use to fly. Just like Dumbowas made special God has made each one of us very special andhe has a very special plan for each of us.There is a story in the Bible of a man named John.Elizabeth and Zacharias were Johns parents. They taught Johnabout God and told him that he had a special job to do for God.John was different than most people of his time -- He lived out inthe wilderness. He dressed in clothes that were made fromcamel's hair and ate things that he found in the desert like locust(grasshoppers) and wild honey.One day God's words came to John and John began to preach tothe people what God had told him. He told them to "Stop doing

    wrong and get ready because the Savior was coming." He wouldbaptize the people who came to him and said they wanted to stopdoing wrong. Soon people began to call him John the Bap-tist. People from all over would come out to the wilderness andlisten to John the Baptist. Some people thought he was theirpromised Savior, but John told them that he wasn't and that hisjob was to tell people about the Savior and get them ready tomeet him.God knew who John was before he was even born and had a spe-cial job for him. God also knew who you were before you wereborn and has a special job for you to do.Ask children what they would like to be when they grow up? Youmay grow up to be a minister or a teacher or a great evangelist or

    you may be a fireman, or a secretary or a mommy or daddy. Nomatter what you become God wants you to grow up to be likeJesus and serve him. He wants you to tell others about Jesusjust like John the Baptist and tell them to be ready because Je-sus is coming again.

    Ca rson d isc overs tha t God is writing a sto ry of h is life a nd if he c hooses to follow

    Go d s story it w ill be one full of fun a nd exciting things.

    AM Big message & wrap up 1 & 2 year oldsProps Needed : Pic ture of Tinkerbell or

    Tinke rbell ToyShow p icture/ toy o f Tinkerbe ll.

    Tinkerbell wa nted to have the same gifts

    as her other friends. She tried to do wha t

    they had been given to do instead of

    doing what she was given to do. When

    Tinkerbell used her g ifts she made a b ig

    difference and helped all the other fair-

    ies. He part to play was important. You

    have a very imp ortant p art to play too.

    There is a sto ry in the Bible of a King who

    had a BIG problem. One night the Kingha d a rea lly strange d rea m. The Kings

    dream was very important but he didnt

    know wha t the dream mea nt.

    God g ave a m an named Joseph a

    special gift and he was able to tell the

    King wha t his d rea m m ea nt.

    God made you just the way he wanted

    to make you. You are different than

    every other person. God wants you to

    use the special abilities he gave you to

    he lp o the rs, just like Josep h d id.

    Props Need ed: Pic ture o f Tinkerb ell or Tinkerbell Toy,

    Ask c hildren who is go od a t running? Hop ing? Singing? Ge tsome of them to come up the front and show everyone.

    Each one of us is good at something. God has made each

    one of us very special and he has given each one of us

    unique g ifts and talents tha t we c an use to serve God .

    Tinkerbell wa nted t o ha ve the same g ifts as her other friends.

    She tried to d o w hat they ha d b een g iven to d o instea d o f

    doing what she was given to do. Does anyone remember

    what spec ia l talent Tinkerbell was given? When Tinkerbell

    used her gifts she m ad e a big d ifferenc e a nd helped all the

    othe r fairies. He p a rt to p lay wa s impo rta nt. You ha ve a very

    imp ortant pa rt to play too.

    There is a story in the Bib le of a king na me d Pha raoh who

    had a BIG problem. One night the king had a really strange

    drea m. The kings d rea m w as very imp ortant b ut he d idnt

    know what the dream mea nt.

    One day someone in the palace told the king that he knew

    som eone nam ed Josep h who c ould tell him w hat his dream

    me ant. The King sent for Josep h. Josep h to ld him, "I c an't te ll

    you what your dream means, but God can tell us what it

    means."

    God gave Joseph a very special ability. Joseph was able to

    help Egyp t by telling Pharao h what his d rea m me ant. Go d

    gives each one of us special abilities to help others. Even

    though you may think there is nothing really special about

    you, there is! God made you just the way he wanted to

    make you. You are different than every other person. God

    may have given you a special ability such as singing, draw-

    ing , tea c hing othe rs, or helping othe rs. God wa nts you to use
