Curriculum for Sunday School Teachers!

God's Search - Hide and Go Seek

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. I have set this page so you can copy and print the lessons for any helpers you may have. All I ask is that you click below and ask for permission to use so I can keep track of how they are received.


God's Search - Hide and Go Seek (God searches our hearts) 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:
"No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me brings him. Then I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:44
God is always looking for people who have a heart for Him. He seeks and finds lost people who do not know Him. God finds us so He can give us His Great Love and bring us into a full knowledge of Christ. Teach the Children that what God is looking for is people who will put Him first and love Him with a whole heart.
(Speak with the children)
The Bible says that you cannot know God's Son, Jesus, unless the Father brings you close to Him. God loves you no matter what. He knows how much you love Him. God searches your heart! He looks for good thoughts in your mind and He sees the way you act.

"The Lord says, "I look deep down inside human hearts. I see what is in people's minds. I reward a man in keeping with his conduct. I bless him based on what he has done."

Jeremiah 17:10

(Teach the children)
Jesus Christ is the only way that we can find God. He is the only one who can keep us from being seperated from God. He wants to be our best friend and the boss of our heart, minds and actions. When we choose to act good and keep good thoughts in our minds, God gives us blessings as a reward.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson - Pass out the coloring page from the link below!)
God's Search - Hide and Go Seek
The Critters love to play "hide and go seek." Joshua will search for the others. He has to count to ten first. Can you help Joshua find his friends? When he starts to look, they will run to home base. They have to touch the tree to win the game!
  Repeat today's Bible verse.
One way God brings us to His Son, Jesus, is to have others tell us about Him and all the wonderful things He has done. When we believe what God says in the Bible about Jesus, He will say, "You were lost, but now you are found!" We can know then that we will live forever with Him in heaven.

Worship God with music.


Use crafts, games, puzzles, hidden pictures, word search, mazes, and books to further emphasize the current weeks' teachings.

Explain the daily devotions! Encourage the Kids to show these to their parents and get help as they continue to learn how God takes care of them through the week.
