Greet new members and introduce them to
the class and the Critters.

- The kind of peace that God gives is special.

too! God gave them a wonderful place to enjoy His peace.
- Repeat today's Bible verse.
- Do you know the peace that God gives? Do
you rest in God's perfect peace? God is pleased when we trust
Him. Trusting God is called faith. Tell your friends about Jesus
and the gift of 'perfect peace.' God will bring rest to their
