Thanksgiving - Watch the Sunset part 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.

Watch the Sunset pt. 2 (be thankful, not angry) by Gramma Cherbear

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:
"When you are angry, do not sin"... Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.... Ephesians 4:26
Teach that anger causes problems in our relationship with God and others. It is hard to be thankful for our blessings if we let angry feelings keep us from thinking happy thoughts.
(Speak with the children)
Going to bed angry will cause you to feel bad when you wake up again. At the end of your day, look back. See if there is anything that you are angry about. Talking to God about the problem can help turn bad feelings into good ones. It is important that we do not keep anger in your heart.
(Teach the children)
God can give us His peace and His joy. He can help us see the truth about the problem. We are special to Him. He can guard our hearts from wrong feelings. Talking with our family and friends about our angry feelings can help. God will use them to bring peace and joy back into our heart.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)

Watch the Sunset part 2
Emmi Squirrel is at peace with her friends and with God. She has forgiven Cami and Joshua for not asking her to go fishing with them. Liam Leapfrog knew there was a problem and he helped Emmi see the truth about her friends. She remembered how much they love her and the fun they have together. It is time to thank God for their blessings. The Kid Cave creatures are happy they will not go to bed with anger in their hearts. Happy Thanksgiving!


Repeat today's Bible verse.
This week you spent more time thanking God for your blessings than you do any other week of the year! God says you should thank Him at all times. He wants you to love Him the way He loves you. I hope your Thanksgiving Day was full of love for God! But, I also hope all of your days are full of love for God!
