Eat This Bread, Drink This Cup

ppt

(Today, we are going to recognize our Sunday school teachers.
Here are our teachers. Teachers, when I say your name, please wave to children…….
Thank you. Now let’s pray for our teachers. Shall we? : “God thank for giving us these wonderful teachers. May you use them to share your wisdom and knowledge. May you also help their life so that they may preach your word through their lives. Also give them a time to prepare their lessons. And while they prepare their lesson, teach and guide them so that they may know your grace inside out. In your name, we pray. Amen.” Thank you teachers.)

We just celebrate our communion.
This bread and this cup mean something.
So, we are going to sing a song and learn what this food means, ok?
We are going to sing a song to know why we show you this bread and this cup.

Now, if you can read, let's read together.
I know some of you have not yet learned to read.
But you will.
Now if you cannot read, just pretend, ok?

Can you read the first verse? :
1. Eat this bread, drink this cup, come to him and never be hungry.
Eat this bread, drink this cup, trust in him and you will not thirst.

Now let’s read the second verse:
2. Jesus Christ, bread of life, those who come to you will not hunger.
Jesus Christ, Risen Lord, those who trust in you will not thirst.

Now, for those who can read, do you understand every word?
Do you have any word that you don’t understand?

In the second verse it says “bread of life.”
What does it mean: “bread of life"?
Right, it means this bread gives life.
It means that this bread gives joy and peace.
This bread gives a good life.

Now try to memorize.
Have you done it?
Now let’s see who remember every word.
Do you know what was on the first blank?
How about the second blank?
How about the third black?
Good.

Now, I am going to sing this first.
Actually, I am going to sing with the choirs.
We are going to sing only the first verse.
After I sing, we all will sing together, ok?
(Sing first)
Now let’s all try to sing along.
Can you do it?
You adults, also join us sing this song.

Now let’s sing.
(Sing together)

This song explains why we eat this bread and drink this cup.
Singing this song, I hope that you will sense or feel why we celebrate this communion, ok?

Let’s pray:
Jesus, thank you for being our bread and our drink.
May we never be hungry and thirty again because of you.
In your name, we pray. Amen.
