Curriculum for the Teacher!

Christmas Lessons pt 2 - Star Light, Star Bright

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.

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:

"...the Angel said to them ...I bring you good news of great joy. It is for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:10,11

 
Objective:
Sharing the birth of the Baby Jesus. Remind the children that Jesus is the reason for the season.
 
(Speak with the children)
In John 1:1, says, "In the beginning, the Word was already there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning."

This verse of the Bible is talking about Jesus! Jesus was God, who was in heaven and who loved us so much that He came to show us His Love. He came to save us from the sin that had been brought into the world by Satan, because Adam and Eve did not obey God in the Garden of Eden.

(Teach the children)
God came to us as a baby lying in a manger. The Angel of the Lord told the wise men and the shepherds that the Bright Star would lead them to the baby. If they followed the Star they would find The Light of the world. Baby Jesus was born to bring God's people out of darkness into His wonderful Light.
 
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)

Star Light, Star Bright
Emmi Squirrel is an angel watching over the Baby Jesus when all of Heavens Angels sang,

"May glory be given to God in the highest heaven! And may peace be given to those He is pleased with on earth!" Luke 2:14.

Cami Cub and Joshua Jackrabbit are on their best behavior on this very special night. Liam Leapfrog is very quiet. He is playing the part of the Baby Jesus.

What fun the Animation Trail Critters are having in the Kid Cave Forest. They are putting on a play to tell all the Forest Creatures about what God has done for His people. They want God to be pleased and give His peace to their friends too!
