"You've Got a Friend In Me"

Our Toy Story series has begun! This week we talked about the song we all know and love from Toy Story, "You've Got a Friend in Me". Our Big Idea stated: I will BARF, Be A Real Friend! We talked about Paul's friend, Barnabas, who was a good friend to him, even when others were'nt. To help us remember how to Be A Real Friend, we learned that a real friend CARES. C- Challenges us, A-Accepts us, R-Respects us, E-Encourages us, S-Sticks with us. These are all things we need to do as we try to be a real friend to others, but sometimes we fail. No one is perfect, except the ultimate friend, Jesus. John 15:13-15 tells us that we are friends of God. No one can or ever will be a better friend than Him. Our Power Vese reminded us: "Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family." Proverbs 18:24
