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:
- "Our hope is certain. It is something
for the soul to hold onto." Hebrews 6:19
- When we belong to Jesus, He will never let
us go. We can hold onto Him when we obey God and trust in all
- Talk with the children:
- God is always with you. He
has given many promises in His Word which explain how much He
loves you and wants to be your heavenly father, best friend and
helper. He says you can hold onto His promises because of Jesus
Christ. He will never leave you. You can pray to Him and know
He hears your prayers. Expect Him to care for you and trust in
His Great love for you. Read and study God's Word so you will
know all the wonderful promises God has for you. Hold onto Jesus
and know that when you belong to Him, He will never let you go.
- Teach the children:
- We can have hope that what
God says in His Word is truth. We can believe Him because God
cannot lie! He has given us the Bible so we can learn about Him
and about His Son, Jesus. We can be sure that God is with us
all the time, that He knows everything and is never surprised,
and that He can do anything by His mighty power. We can be sure
that He is always the same and will never change. God is perfect.
His love is perfect. When we give our hearts to God, it is Jesus
that holds onto us forever!
- (Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
- Hold Onto the Rope Tightly!
- Joshua Jackrabbit is holding tightly to the
rope. He is trusting his friend, Cami Cub, to pull him up where
he will be safe. He knows Cami loves him and cares for him. Cami
will not let go of the rope because she loves Joshua. Joshua
will not let go of the rope because he trusts Cami to keep him
- Repeat today's Bible verses.
- Jesus will not let go of us because He loves
us. When we obey God and do what He says is right, we are also
holding onto Him. A blessing is something good that happens to
you. God gives many blessings to His children when they do what
He says is right. Can you think of any blessings God has given
to you when you have done what God says is right?
