Animation Trail Bible Study for Children

Help for the Wanderer

Teachers may add their own creative skills and special touches. You can use snacks, play games, select music and/or use a study of the people in the Bible chosen by God to teach this lesson. At Calvary Kids Church, we will be having our church drama team present a skit with some of the lessons. Each week is different. Be creative and capture their attention. Remember they will be getting to know the Critters, their personalities, and be able to relate to them as time goes on.

There is much more to these lessons than you see on this page so be sure to follow the links below to gain full benefit of all Gramma Cherbear has provided for you.

Read the Bible Verse for the day!
The Bible Says:
"Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And you can be sure that I am always with you,to the very end." Matthew 28:20
 
Objective:
Teach the children to become disciples of Christ. There are many ways to share Jesus with our friends.
 
Talk with the children:
Many of your friends are wandering around lost. They don't know God because no one has told them that Jesus loves them. No one has told them they need to accept His free gift of forgiveness and ask Jesus to come into their hearts. God is always with you when you tell others about Jesus. The Bible is God's Word. In His Word, He points the way you should go and what to say to others about Him. We can help those who are wandering around in the world without the hope and love of Jesus in their heart.
 
Teach the children:
We should remember, someone loved us enough to point us in the right direction. God wants us to share the Gospel (good news) of Christ. He places His love in us when we are saved. Telling people the "good news" about Jesus and how much He loves them is called "sharing the gospel." Faith in God comes by hearing the Word of God. We were lost until someone shared their faith in Jesus with us. We are learning to know Jesus and can have a personal love relationship with God because they did what God's Word told them to do. Sharing the gospel is sharing God's love. If you have not asked Jesus to live in your heart, you can do that today!
Pray this prayer:
Father God,
I understand that I do bad things. You call this sin. I ask You to fill my empty heart with Jesus. I believe that Jesus is Your Son. He was punished for my sins. He died for me on the cross because He loves me. He lives again. Please forgive the bad things I have done. Thank you for sending Your Holy Spirit to live inside of me. Help me to be like Jesus. Thank you God, for your wonderful plan. I am Your child! Jesus is my Lord and my very best Friend.
Amen
If you prayed this prayer and asked Jesus to come into your heart,please tell your Church School teacher or Pastor that you did.They will want to guide you in God's Word!

Help for the Wanderer

Emmi Squirrel and Liam Leapfrog look like they might go the wrong way. There are pretty flowers on the other path. Cami Cub is a caring friend and she has already shown Joshua Jackrabbit the right way. He is excited and happy because now He can show others the only true path to the cave. Emmi and Liam will not get lost. They have such loving friends.

 
(closing)
Repeat today's Bible verses.
God wants us to care about others. He loves everyone and wants them to know what Jesus has done for them. If we do not tell them, they will believe the lies of Satan and never really become God's child. Show others how Jesus lives inside of you. Show His Great Love to a friend. Help someone who needs your help. Forgive someone like Jesus forgives you. Invite a friend to your church or Sunday school class. These are some other ways we can share the gospel of Christ.

Worship God with music.
