In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.
If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
That’s the nutshell of this lesson: Jesus is in heaven so it’s our goal to be with Him there someday too. So how do we get there?
This lesson uses the device of planning a trip as we think about our journey to heaven. You have all the pieces you need – a ticket, itinerary, passport, travel tips, etc.
PARENTS: It’s important to read the Preparation Instructions on page 3. You’ll need to assemble a few pieces and mail some things to your kids in advance. Don’t skip this step, especially if it’s your family’s first time doing this lesson! Kids love to get real mail and this will be a perfect lesson opener!
The rest of the lesson is basically going through these travel pieces to learn more about the topic:
- Who is the pilot of your flight?
- What meals will be served?
- How will your passport stamps help you get to heaven?
- Who is your travel agent?
All this is fun for all ages, and (as we typically offer) there is a little additional bit for your older kids on just what it means to know, love and serve God in this world to help us attain the happiness of heaven in the next.
