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:
"May the God who gives hope fill you with great joy. May you have perfect peace as you trust in him. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill you with hope." Romans 15:13
The kind of peace that God gives is special. It is a trusting peace. We have comfort knowing that God cares for us and is always taking care of us. He wants us to rest well knowing He is in charge.
(Speak with the children)

Having a wonderful place to rest can bring a peaceful feeling to your mind and body. Where is your place? Is it your room? God wants your heart and Spirit to have a place to rest. You can have the 'peace' that comes from God. It is a resting place for your Spirit. Your heart can be quiet and still and you can know that God will take care of you.

"Be still and know that I am God...." Psalms 46:10

(Teach the children)
God knew we could not have 'perfect peace' without Him. Perfect peace is a fruit of His Spirit. He wanted His children to know the kind of peace only He can give to them. When we know Jesus, our hope in God is real. It gives us power to trust Him, all the time. What a wonderful gift it is, to have peace in your heart. When you are resting and saying your prayers, thank God for His gift of peace!
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Peace - A place of rest!
The Kid Cave Critters have been busy for a very long time. They need to rest. Joshua Jackrabbit knew where to take his friends! Joshua always finds peace in the meadow. Liam Leapfrog and Emmi Squirrel are resting. When Cami Cub is comfortable, Joshua will lie down and rest in the peaceful meadow 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 hearts too!

Worship God with music.
