Day 3: Jesus Calls His Disciples

Story Verse: Matthew 4:18-22; 9:9-13

Memory Verse: Matthew 19:21

Welcome to Day 3 of Vacation Bible School: Rainforest Explorers!

Sidney the Puppet is here to start us off

Now it is time to sing!

Now let’s take an attitude of prayer, whatever that is for you. Now, we pray:

Thank you Lord for this time to be with you and learn about how you are always with us. Thank you for those who are participating with us who we cannot see. Please guide our path this week. Amen

Today we are going to talk about how


Let’s start the learning off with another song:

Thank you for doing the movements with that last song, it’s a great way to do some moving before our story. Now it is time to hear about Jesus!

As the story is read, let’s listen closely and hear about how Jesus called his disciples.

Now it’s time to check in with Nick and Megan!

I wonder how Nick and Megan are going to make a compass!

Let’s take a minute to remember what we are learning today:


Now let’s see one way God works in our world

If you have an offering today,  please see the ways you can give:

Let us pray:

Jesus, You promise to show us the way.

Help me follow You wherever You lead.

I know You are always with me.

In Your name we pray. Amen.

Now it is time to go to our first rotation. Before we do, let’s have a little movement break. We are going to listen to our theme song and remember our theme for today! While you are listening, get up and move! You can do the movements in the video or make up some cool moves of your own.

Storytelling time!

What do you think of this Bible Challenge?

Let’s get crafting!

Welcome to Closing!

What did you learn today?

The disciples didn’t always know which way to go, but they knew Jesus was with them and would lead them.

Even when we don’t see Jesus, He is always with us and shows us the way!

Now, let’s sing

Let’s check in with Megan and Nick!

Today we learned a lot. Here is a verse that you can remember from today.

Our Bible Memory Verse today is from God’s Holy Word.

This verse talks about how special God’s love is.

This is a great verse for everyone to know by heart and say every day!

Now let’s pray,

Dear God, You promise to lead the way. We can trust You because You love us and always keep Your promises. We give You thanks and praise for Your love and care! In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Time to get up and move!

Now it is time to check in with Sidney again.

I hope you had a great Day 3!

Let’s remember


See you tomorrow
