Pointing the Way
(Accepting Christ as Savior and Lord)
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:
- "Go! stand in the temple courtyard,
"the angel said. "Tell the people all about this new
- Teach the children it is never to early to
begin to teach others about Jesus. Tell the children how to accept
Christ as their Savior and to share Jesus with others.
- Talk with the children:
- When great things happen to you, do you want
to tell everyone you know? When you get a new toy, do you quickly
show it to your friends? God wants you to feel the same way about
His Son. You can point the way to God by telling others about
Jesus. Invite someone to your Vacation Bible School or Church
- Teach the children:
- When we tell other people about the new life
God has prepared for us, it shows we love them. We want them
to know He did not leave us alone. God gave His Son to point
the way to a forever life with Him in heaven. He died on the
cross so we can be forgiven of our sins. His free gift saved
us from being seperated from God forever. All we have to do is
receive the gift. Asking Jesus to live in our heart and be our
Lord is the only way to God. If you would like to do that, you
can pray like this:
I understand that I do bad
things. You call this sin. I ask You to fill my empty heart with
Jesus. I believe that Jesus is Your Son. He was punished for
my sins. He died for me on the cross because He loves me. My
spirit is free! I ask Jesus to live in me. Please forgive the
bad things I have done. Thank you for sending Your Holy Spirit
to live inside of me. Help me to be like Jesus. Thank you God,
for your wonderful plan. I am Your child! Jesus is my Lord and
my very best Friend!
- If you prayed this prayer and you asked Jesus
to save you, He did! Now go tell your parents or your church
school teacher, so they can guide your new life with God.

- Pointing the Way
- Gramma's Critters have something to share
with the creatures in the Kid Cave Forest. They have good news
to share. They are putting up signs to point the way. Liam Leapfrog
will shout the good news as Cami Cub carries the banner through
the forest. Because they are announcing Vacation Bible School
at the Kid Cave, many will come. They will learn about a new
life that was brought to the world by Jesus.
- Repeat today's Bible verses.
- God wants us to shout the good news about
Jesus to everyone. We are excited because we know how much He
loves us. God wants us to tell others, Jesus came to save them
and give them a new life!
