Day: Proper 27C
Lectionary Passage: Psalm 145:1-5, 17-21
Scripture Focus: Psalm 145:1-5
Object: Noisemakers (one per child) TIP: If you can’t give each child a noisemaker, then use toss confetti to shower the children as they shout “God is Wonderful!”
I love to celebrate! Really, I love, love, love to celebrate! I love to celebrate birthdays and holidays and anything else that suits my fancy. And, of course, you’ve got to have cool things to help you celebrate… like these noisemakers! (Give each child a noisemaker).
This morning, I want us to celebrate. But not just any old thing, I want us to celebrate God! That’s what our Scripture passage is all about. It’s about celebrating God because God is wonderful and loves us all so much. You know, each and every day God reaches out to us with that love and that is something to celebrate. So, get your noisemaker ready… after I shout “God is Wonderful” I want you do blow those noisemakers to celebrate. Ready? 1… 2… 3… God is Wonderful! (Let the kids blow the noisemakers). That was awesome! Want to do it again? Alright, 1… 2… 3… God is Wonderful! (Let the kids blow the noisemakers).
As you take these noisemakers home with you, I want you to remember to always celebrate God because God is wonderful and amazing and always good to us.
Let’s pray: God, we want to praise and celebrate you and all that you do for us each and every day through your love. Amen.
