Curriculum for the Teacher!

Fruits of the Spirit - teachers

Teachers foreward - Faith, Hope and Love, God's way!

Goodness & Kindness - Providing a Shelter

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:
"Poor people have come to you for safety. You have kept needy people safe when they were in trouble..." Isaiah 25:4
We all have times when we need God to send us help from other people. We must be available for God to use when others need us to help keep them safe and well. There are many ways to be good, and many ways to be kind.
(Speak with the children)
Your home is your shelter. Your parents feed you each day. I hope this is true for you. There are children in our world who are not safe. God wants you to be good and kind to everyone. He will fill your heart with joy as you help people.
(Teach the children)
God shows us the needs of others. He wants us to help His children be safe. We can speak a kind word or do a good deed. We can also pray for the needs of others. God teaches us how to grow up with goodness and kindness in your heart. Jesus was kind to many people. He fed them and made them well. Goodness and kindness are also fruits of His Spirit. Remember to thank God when someone treats you with a good and kind heart.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Goodness & Kindness - Providing a Shelter
Some forest creatures are homeless because of a the forest fire. They are on their way to the Kid Cave. They will be happy to see how much the Critters want to help them. They will eat and find new homes near the Kid Cave. The Critters know that God wants them to help others. They are full of God's joy. They can see God's peace in their friends, as they treat them with goodness and kindness.
Repeat today's Bible verse.
God cares for us. It is because of His goodness and kindness we are safe and well. When we are in trouble, it is God who sends our help. We can do as Jesus would do, if we use our gift of goodness and kindness to help others. When God gives us a way to help others, that is what we must do. He will bless us and them too!
