Greet new members and introduce them to

Open the class with a prayer.
- Teach the children they can be secure in
God's love. He says He will never leave us. Also teach them that
we can use that same faithfulness in the way we treat God.
- (Speak with the children)
- God is Faithful. Faithfulness is a part of
God's character. Because He loves you, you can know He will always
be with you. He gives you strength and helps you when you are
in trouble. He is faithful to bring joy and peace to your heart.
He loves you no matter who you are or what you have done.
- God is faithful. What He says, He will do!
"The One who has chosen you is faithful.
He will do all these things." 1Thessalonians 5:24
- (Teach the children)
- Jesus was faithful to do what His Father
ask Him to do. Because He was faithful, we can know God. We can
pray to God and call Jesus our friend. When we know God this
way, there is another gift He gives to us. Faithfulness is one
of the Fruits of the Spirit. We can use the gift of faithfulness
to help our family and friends. We can also use this gift to
be faithful to God and tell others about His great love.
- (Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
- Faithfulness - we need faithful friends
- The trip home from the ski adventure was
not so good for Cami Cub. She tripped on a rock and injured her
foot. She needs her friends to help her get home. Cami Cub is
always a caring and faithful friend. She is quick to love others
with God's special love. Her Critter friends have brought her
to the safety of the Kid Cave. Gramma's Critters are being faithful
in their love for each other.
- Repeat today's Bible verse.
- A friend who can be trusted is a faithful
friend. If a friend always does what he says he will do, he is
a faithful friend. We all count on God to do what He says he
will do. We can trust God. We must not forget that God wants
to count on us too!
