Jesus Is My Good Shepherd: 3 Preschool Bible Lessons

The world can be a frightful place for young children. This series of Bible lessons will help the children in your class to trust in Jesus as their Good Shepherd. It draws from several passages in the Gospel of John to show how He loves, saves, and protects them.

These lesson plans are intended for preschool children, ages 2-5.  They were written by Kristen Charles for a children’s church or Preschool Sunday School, but can be adapted to meet your particular ministry setting. Each lesson includes additional learning activities for your class.
