Exegetical Aim: God's love and concern for one lost child.

Props: A child who is able to play along with hiding until she is found. It should be a child who is known by most of the other children. Just before the children's sermon the child hiding should take her place. You want the children to create as much commotion in the sanctuary as possible, so arrange for her to find a good hiding place. Gather the children as usual.

Lesson: Good morning! (response) It's good to have everybody here this morning ... Wait a minute ... Is everybody here? (response) Somebody is missing. (response) Who is missing? (response) If they don't know, describe the child. You know what we have to do when someone is lost? (response) That's right. We need to find [child's name] and bring her back. Get up and motion for the children to get up as you say: Let's go find [Child's name].

Good job! You found...
