Patience - "Reaching for Higher Ground!"

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:
"A mans wisdom makes him patient. He will be honored if he forgives someone who sins against him." Proverbs 19:11
Teach the children not to be unhappy with others or themselves when things do not go their way. Help them to choose not to get angry about things that cannot be helped. We also need to have patients with God.
(Speak with the children)
When you play a game you do not understand or you are not big enough to play, it can make you upset with yourself and others. It is important to know the rules and purpose of the game. You need to watch and make sure it is fair and everyone knows how to play. Are you patient when someone else is unhappy? God wants you to choose not to get angry or upset with yourself and others when things are not going your way. You should also watch out for the feelings of others.
(Teach the children)
We are not all the same. God has given everyone talents. Our talents could be different from even out very best friends. Jesus knew we would need to have patience with ourselves and each other. The Fruit of the Spirit called 'patience' is a gift we learn to use with practice. We can choose not to get upset because God gave us this wonderful gift of Holy Spirit.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Patience - Reaching for Higher Ground!
It is a fun time for all at Liam Leapfrog's birthday party. Or is it? Emmi Squirrel has a problem. Balloons are perfect for the game of 'keep away.' They float slowly and everyone loves to hit them and watch them as they pop high into the air. Emmi tried but could not reach them. Her arms are too short and she can't jump high like Liam. The Critters need to learn about God's gift of patience. Then the party could be fun for everyone.
Repeat today's Bible verse.
We don't always understand why God says 'no' to our prayers. We also might not want to wait on God to do something. He wants us to trust Him and use the gift of 'patience' with Him too! We need to trust that we will grow. He will give us talents and help us to use them. He wants us to use the gift of 'patience' as we love Jesus, others and yes, even ourselves, with His special love.

Worship God with music.
