Christian Bible Studies & Devotions For Children!

Curriculum for the Teacher!

Repair and Renew!

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.

Repair and Renew!
(forgiving others)

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:
"Put up with each other. Forgive the things you are holding against one another.
Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you." Colossians 3:13
Objective: In last weeks lessons the Critters try to clean up Gramma Cherbear's Den after (either Ricky & Randy Racoon or the Badger Brothers) were up to mischief making. Please review last weeks lesson to prepare for this one! Teach the children the importance of forgiving others and how Jesus forgives us.
Talk with the children:
When others mistreat you it's easy to get more upset than you need to be. You may be tempted to lose your temper. Stay calm and tell God how you feel. Try to look at the bright side. See what good you can make of it. Maybe you can learn how to repair something. You may learn more about why you should share God's love with others. God will help repair your damaged heart and renew a happiness in you.
Teach the children:
It is very important we learn how to forgive. Staying mad at someone will only cause pain in our hearts. This will keep us unhappy. God wants us to be quick to forgive others. He forgave us quickly; we need to do the same for ourselves and others.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)

Gramma's Critters have learned a new lesson this week. She is helping them see that things are not so bad. She is happy they cleaned her Den after the mischief making of others. She has shown them how to mend what is broken. A few stitches on her favorite chair makes it almost as good as new. Some glue to the teapot and cups and they will again be used for visitors to the Den. Gramma Cherbear knows, life is too wonderful to spend time being angry over the misdeeds of others.
Repeat today's Bible verses.
It is good to learn how to make good from bad. Looking to see what we can do to make things better will help our hearts heal. Keeping our minds on good will keep us happier and healthier too! When you feel yourself getting red hot with anger, remember to go talk to God about the problem. Ask Him to show you what is good! It may be your time to show someone else the right way to behave.

Worship God with music.


Use crafts, games, puzzles, hidden pictures, word search, mazes, and books to further emphasize the current weeks' teachings. We are using the Bible Shapes Activity Book this week.

Pass out the coloring pages.

Explain the daily devotions! Encourage the Kids to show these to their parents and get help as they continue to learn how God takes care of them through the week.
