The Ten Commandments (4) - A Restful Escape

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. I have set this page so you can copy and print the lessons for any helpers you may have. All I ask is that you click below and ask for permission to use so I can keep track of how they are received.

A Restful Escape
(We need to rest)
by Gramma Cherbear

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:
"Observe the Sabbath day. Keep it holy, just as the Lord your God commanded you"
Deuteronomy 5:12
"Then the King will speak to those on his right. He will say, 'My Father has blessed you.
Come and take what is yours. It is the kingdom prepared for you since the world was created..." Matthew 25:34
 
Objective:
We work hard all week. God took a rest day when He created the world. He says we can too! He wants us to use our rest day to worship and honor Him for all the good He has done.
 
(God Commands)
You are reading this lesson because you want to learn more about Jesus. You love God and want to do what He says. He says you need a day of rest! God wants to bless you with a restful day. You need a day when you can think about Him. He will super charge your engine, if you will let Him. Praising God, remembering the great love He has for you, will get you give you steam for another week. Just like the "Little Engine that could." He wants you to have a restful escape from the pressures of a busy week.
 
We normally think that we have five workdays and two play days. That was not exactly what God had in mind. He said we should work for six days of the week and use the seventh day to rest. He also said to keep the seventh day, the Sabbath Day, Holy. That is why Christians use Sunday for worshiping God and resting. Jesus arose from the dead on a Sunday. He brought us New Life on a Sunday. It is for our own good God commands us to rest on this day. He knows that we need to stop and think about Him.
 
(Blessed Are You!)
God wants us to be ready for His Kingdom. Jesus is the King of kings. He will show us the place He has made for us. When we study the Bible we learn to know God. Jesus made a way for us to be with God forever. We are already blessed by God.
 
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson - pass out the coloring page)
 
A Restful Escape
The Critters love to worship God in the peaceful meadow of the Kid Cave Forest. Cami Cub is leading the Bible class today. Joshua Jackrabbit will say a prayer. Emmi Squirrel is learning something new that will help her have a wonderful week. Today is Liam Leapfrog's favorite day. Today, he will be quiet and have a restful escape from his busy life in the pond. Gramma's Critters love this beautiful world God created. They are learning about the Kingdom of God.
 
(closing)
 
Repeat today's Bible verse.
Our day of rest is a blessing from God. He has made even better plans for us when we come into the Heavenly Kingdom. But He wants us to enjoy His blessings here on earth. If we talk and listen to God on our day of rest, He will teach us about His Great Love. We are blessed when we worship Him and learn about Jesus.

Worship God with music.

Activities:

Use crafts, games, puzzles, hidden pictures, word search, mazes, and books to further emphasize the current weeks' teachings.

We are so glad you came to Kids Church today! Announce next weeks lesson.

Did you honor your Mother on Mother's Day? I hope you told her how much you love her. Gramma too! Next week we will see what God has to say about the way we honor our Mothers and Fathers. Come back!
