Week 5: Truth

Coach’s Corner

Warm Up

Read: John 1:1-3

Hey Team! I’m excited about our topic today, but I want to start with a game before we jump in. We are going to play “Two Truths and a Lie.” Each one of us will come up with three statements describing ourselves. Two of those statements will be true, and one will be a lie. Then we will go around, and you will say your three statements, and we have to guess which one is the lie.

(You go first and have the kids guess what your lie is. Then, pick two other kids to go.)

Good job guys! As you could tell, figuring out what was true and what was not was tough. Today, we are talking about truth and how the Bible tells us who God is and how He loves us. 


Sometimes, we wish there was an easy way to know if someone is telling the truth. How else will you get to honestly know someone?

I have good news for you: we never have to question whether what we know about God is true. All we have to do is look at the Bible to find out.

The Bible isn’t called God’s Word just because He wrote it; it’s called that so we know that everything we read inside builds our trust in who God is and provides the truth of how He feels about us.

In John 1:1-3 We are told a straightforward truth: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.”

This verse should give us confidence to trust what we read in the Bible. The Bible isn’t a book about God; it’s God’s book. To be part of God’s Game Plan, we need to know what is true and what is not about God. The Bible is where we can go to find these truths. Whenever you are questioning or struggling with something in life, the Bible is there to help guide you to the truth. 


  1. Can you tell me one thing you know is true about God?
  2. How can you use the Bible in your everyday life? Where can you read your Bible?

“God, thank You for giving us Your Word, which helps us discover what to believe about You. The world tells us to believe all sorts of things, but we know that if we look at the Bible, we will discover what You want us to believe. Help us to trust what the Bible says about You, Amen.”
