Animation Trail Bible Study for Children

Palm Sunday - Bridging the Gap

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.

Read the Bible Verse for the day!
The Bible Says:
"...We are full of joy in God because of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of him, God has brought us back to himself." Romans 5:11
Jesus is our safe way to come to God. He is the only way we have to know God and have a relationship with Him. Teach the children that Jesus is The Way!
(Speak with the children)
Have you ever been on a bridge and looked below? They keep you from falling into dangerous places! Having a safe way to get where you need to go, is a real blessing. God has prepared a safe way for you to come to Him. It is a part of the wonderful plan He has for your life on earth and in Heaven.
(Teach the children)
Jesus was God's only Son and God's Son came to earth. God told us all about it in His Word. He wants us to know how to come to Him! The Bible is God's voice to us about what His Son has done to save us. It tells how Jesus built the bridge to lead us across a huge gap. This gap separates us from God. The gap is our sins, the wrong things we do! God does not want us to fall into sin. Before we know Jesus, we are lost from God. Our spirits cannot know God's Spirit. God loves us and is waiting for us to come across the bridge. Jesus will forgive our sins so we can have the blessing of knowing God and living forever with Him. Our spirit can be connected to God's Spirit forever. This is the greatest of all God's blessings.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
Palm Sunday - Bridging the Gap

The Kid Cave Critters need to go to the other side of the forest. Liam Leapfrog already went across and is waiting for his friends to follow him. He hopped across this bridge! The waters are very rough below. He did not want to be separated from His friends. Cami Cub does not want to be left behind. Gramma's Critters are very thankful for this bridge.

There is life forever on the side where God is. Jesus is the only bridge that will lead you safely to God.

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."
John 14:6
Repeat today's Bible verse.
Will you hop across as Liam did? Will you tell your friends and family to come and learn about Jesus? God will bring them to himself if they will love His Son. Jesus made our way to Father God. We need to tell those who have not found God. If we really care the way God cares, we will tell them. God's Holy Spirit will help us!

Worship God with music.
