Welcome (1 minute)

Hello everyone! Welcome to a new Superbook adventure about two amazing miracles Jesus did to provide for people’s needs. Before we see these miracles in today’s video, let’s check in with Joy to see what she needs!

Play Video 2: Chris and Joy’s Dilemma (2 minutes)

Chris and Joy’s Dilemma

SuperTruth and Discussion (2 minutes)

Our SuperTruth is, “I will trust Jesus and do what He asks.” 

Why was the craft fair so important to Joy? It was to earn money for the food bank. She had pledged $100.   

Why was she concerned? There weren’t many items to sell.   

Let’s say today’s SuperTruth together: “I will trust Jesus and do what He asks.”   

Why is it easier to obey someone you know and trust rather than someone you don’t knowYou know they have good reasons for their request, and won’t harm you or get you into trouble.     

We can always trust and obey Jesus because He will never ask us to do something that will harm us or cause us to disobey God’s Word. Jesus loves us and wants the best for us. When He asks us to do something, it is to fulfill God’s purpose and plan.     

Let’s watch the rest of the video and find out if Joy has enough to sell to meet her pledge to the foodbank. We will also see two amazing miracles that Jesus performs and meet an unselfish boy who is willing to share all he has! 

Play Video 3: Bible Story and Resolution (21.5 minutes) 

Superbook takes Chris, Joy and Gizmo to the wedding at Cana, where Jesus changes water into wine. Later, He feeds a crowd of over five thousand people by multiplying five loaves of bread and two fish into a great feast. The children learn that God will supply every need.

Play Video 10A: SuperVerse Graphic

The graphic loops 1.5 minutes without audio; turn off or freeze video after children repeat verse.

SuperVerse 10A

SuperVerse Discussion (1 minute)

Let’s say today’s SuperVerse together.  John 2:5  

His mother told the servants, “Do whatever He tells you.”     

Who said this in the video? Mary—Jesus’ mother.  

Who was she talking to? The servants at the wedding.  

Mary had complete trust in Jesus to provide what was needed, so she instructed the servants to obey—no matter what Jesus told them to do. We must trust Jesus and by faith do what He asks—even when we may not understand why.   

Children will have more time to learn the SuperVerse in Small Group. If any children are not able to memorize the entire verse, be sure they understand its meaning. 

Prayer and Send-Off (1 minute)

Heavenly Father, thank You for being our generous and faithful provider. You give us all we need in every circumstance. Help us to trust You and do whatever You ask—that Your will can be done, and that many others can come to know You. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.      

In Small Group today, we are going to play a game very similar to “Simon Says.” In this game, you will have fun doing whatever is asked. Are you ready to play?    

Teachers take children to Small Group classes for Grades 1–3 and 4–6. If the combined group is small, all children may stay together for Small Group time.
