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:
"I want men everywhere to pray. I want them to lift up holy hands. I don't want them to be angry when they pray, I don't want them to argue." 1 Timothy 2:8
Show God wants them to pray with a thankful heart. It is important to take care of angry feelings in a good way. Praying to God and talking to others will help them see the truth so they can stop being angry.
(Speak with the children)
It is OK for you to get angry. It is how you act or behave when you are angry that concerns God. It is good to tell someone when you are angry. It is not good to do bad things or act badly. God wants you to think about it and bring a happy end to your anger. You can do this, with His help!
(Teach the children)
It is Not OK for us to stay angry. Praying to Jesus can quiet our tempers and make us feel better. God has given us family and friends to help us turn bad feelings into good ones. Our parents and teachers can help us see what God would have us do with our anger.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Watch the Sunset part 1
Emmi Squirrel is angry. Cami Cub and Joshua Jackrabbit went fishing and they did not ask her to come with them. They thought she was busy getting ready for their Thanksgiving Dinner. Liam Leapfrog will comfort Emmi and help her know her friends love her. She must get over her angry feelings before the night time comes. It could cause problems and sadness at their Thanksgiving Day celebration.

Repeat today's Bible verse.
When the bible says "men" it is speaking of all people. He is talking to all of His children. It is important to forgive and hold our tempers. That is hard for us to do sometimes. God loves to help us! When we ask Him to help us, He will! He wants us to thank Him and praise Him for everything He does. He knows anger will get in the way of how we love Him and others.
Worship God with music.
