Christian Bible Studies & Devotions For Children!

Curriculum for the Teacher!

The Campfire Lights the Darkness (2)

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.

Greet new members and introduce them to the class and the Critters.

Open the class with a prayer.

Read the Bible Verse for the day!
The Bible Says:
"Your word is like a lamp that shows me the way. It is like a light that guides me." Psalm 119: 105
Teach the kids to look towards God to keep them safe. They need to pray for His guidance and learn what He says, so they can make right choices and stay on His path.
(Speak with the children)
God is your Lamp in the Darkness. The Bible says His Word is also like a Lamp to guide you. God loves you so much He wants you to know good from bad in your heart and your mind? When Jesus lives in your heart, He can shine God's Light in your heart and help you think right thoughts in your mind.
(Teach the children)
The Holy Bible is God's "How To," book for His children. No matter how young or old we are, He can show us the way we should go. He can keep peace in our hearts. When we get frightened, God wants us to know He is there. He cares for us. He can keep us safe in the dark. God also gives us joy when we see with His Light.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Remember they will be getting to know the Critters, their personalities, and be able to relate to them as time goes on.

The Campfire Lights the Darkness (2) with illustration.
Emmi Squirrel and Joshua Jackrabbit only wanted to surprise Cami Cub and Liam Leapfrog. Cami was so excited! She did not notice Liam was there. Liam will have to "Ribbit" his way out of this one! Emmi and Joshua did not mean to scare Cami and Liam. They wanted to share what they will be wearing to the Calvary Forest Church Fall Fun Festival. They will be celebrating because Jesus won their battle with Satan. Because of Jesus, God's children will live forever with Him.

Show how Liam is trapped under Cami's arm in the excitement. See how happy everyone is when the campfire is bright enough to see clearly.

Repeat today's Bible verse.
Remember, Halloween is a holiday that celebrates Satan and evil. I hope you will be sure to celebrate Jesus and good. Go to a Fall Fun Festival at your church or a church near to you on Halloween! Take a friend!

Worship God with music.
