Greet new members and introduce them to
the class and the Critters.
Open the class with a prayer.
- 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.

- 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
- 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.
