New Creature - Be Ready for Quick Turns

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:
"Anyone who believes in Christ is a new creature. The old is gone! The new has come!"
2Corinthians. 5:17
Jesus starts making changes in the way we think when He becomes our Lord. Explain we have a will to do what is wrong. God wants to change that into a will to do what is right.
(Speak with the children)
Do you say you are a Christian and then act badly to others? Saying you are a Christian means that you have chosen to follow Jesus Christ and let Him be the boss of your life. When you ask Jesus to come into your heart, you are asking God to teach you how to be like His Son. Be ready for God to show you what He wants to change about you!
(Teach the children)
God knows that we cannot be perfect. He also knows that some of the changes won't be easy to make. The Holy Spirit can give us His power, but He needs our help. He may need to move some things out of our way. He may want to change the friends we have or the way we spend our time. We must be willing in our hearts to change. God will help us to be more like Jesus.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
New Direction - Seek the Right Path

Joshua Jackrabbit was running a race with Emmi Squirrel. He was trying so hard to win the race that he did not see the turn in the path. It changed direction because the tree was in the way. Emmi squirrel will help to guide Joshua on this path when they race again. Joshua needs to keep his eyes open for the quick turns.

Repeat today's Bible verse.

When we don't see the changes that God needs to make in us, God has to show them to us over again and again, until we are willing to be the children of God He wants us to be. If we are New Creatures in Christ, we will listen to God and do what He says. When we don't, we need to ask Him to forgive us and try again.

Worship God with music.
