We Can Love and Serve Others

I am from the Secret Service! I love to look for ways to help people. Does anyone else want to join my team?

I have been sent here to train you!

First we need to know what service is? Any ideas?? (Service is helping someone without asking for something in return!)

Give me some examples of service you have done or seen done. Take suggestions. Give examples of service from children that have been noticed.

Pick up trash from side of road

The only rule we have at the secret service is that you have to do your service in secret. Now I know that sometimes you might be seen even though you sneak, but just smile and finish what you are doing. It is fun to be seen but more fun to not be seen!!!

Let's think of some ways we can serve. Everyone think of one thing they can do.

Have a big wipe board and several markers. The children come up and write their service idea or draw a picture of it. While they are writing, we sing songs, using some of their ideas and pantomiming them.

It's fun to help others but do you know the best reason for serving?

When we help others it is just like we are helping Jesus. Stand up if you would like to help Jesus.

Repeat after me. "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only In the service of your God" Mosiah 2:17.

Repeat 2-3 times while standing.

Sing: I will be valiant (Remain standing)

Who wants to join the secret service? I have a bag of hearts for each of you - do you think you can use them all up by next week! I want to hear what you did!

Give each child a Ziplock bag with 10 small hearts in it. The paper in the bag says: Join the Secret Service

Instructions:

When we serve we shine! People will wonder why we are so happy! It's just like a burst of sunshine!

Sing Jesus Wants me for a Sunbeam
