Have a tissue ... from CSS Plus | Second | Revelation 7:9-17 |
Good morning, boys and girls. I want to talk about tears this morning, so I brought a box of tissues. What kinds of things make you cry?

Attract and repel ... from CSS Plus | Gospel | John 10:22-30 |
Good morning, boys and girls. I brought a magnet. Does anyone know when magnets were really discovered? (wait for a show of hands) Magnets were discovered about 800 years before Jesus was born. What does a magnet do? (let them answer) It attracts things. If you drop a box of straight pins on the floor, they're easy to pick up >> More


Attract and repel ... from CSS Plus | Activity | John 10:22-30 |
Teachers: Jesus talked about sheep and shepherds in many of his stories. One of them is in today's lesson with the theme of the sheep knowing the shepherd's voice. Play a game to try to see whose voices children can recognize. Have the children sit in a circle with their backs to the center. You may want to blindfold them. >> More

Knowing the shepherd's voice ... from CSS Plus | Activity | John 10:22-30 |
This lesson starts with some people challenging Jesus about
who he really is. They want to know why he won't just come out
and tell them if he is really the Messiah. Jesus responds by
telling them that he has already answered their questions, and
that they didn't recognize what the answers were. They do not
know him or the >> More


White robes ... from CSS Plus | Second | Revelation 7:9-17 |
Good morning! The Bible tells us that when we go to heaven,
we will be able to stand before God in robes that have been washed
white in the blood of the Lamb. Who can tell me what color blood
is? (Let them answer.) That's right; blood is red. Now how in the
world can we wash something in red >> More


Safe in his hands ... from CSS Plus | Gospel | John 10:22-30 |
Good morning! Jesus tells us some wonderful things in the
Gospel. He says that his sheep will hear his voice and follow him,
that they will never be lost and nobody can take them away from
him. Now, who are his sheep? (Let them answer.) Yes, that's right.
We are his sheep! You and I! Doesn't it make you feel >> More


"Safe in his hands" ... from CSS Plus | Activity | John 10:22-30 |

safe and secure. As parents and teachers we try to provide an
environment where they do feel safe, cared for, loved, and secure.
This Gospel message gives us an opportunity to show them that, as
children of God, they have a loving Father in heaven who will keep
them >> More


Security blanket ... from CSS Plus | Second | Revelation 7:9-17 |
Good morning! I have an old blanket here. It doesn't look like much to you or to me, but to the boy who owns this blanket, it means a great deal. When he would fall on his bicycle and skin his knee, he would get his blanket and curl up in it and would immediately feel better. If someone called >> More


You can tell ... from CSS Plus | Gospel | John 10:22-30 |
If I carried these tools around with me a lot, what do you think my job might be? (Let them answer.) I would probably be a carpenter. What if I carried a scanner radio with me? (Let them answer.) Then perhaps I'm a paramedic or a volunteer firefighter.

You can tell ... from CSS Plus | Activity | John 10:22-30 |
Teachers or Parents: Children don't need to learn the truth of living one's beliefs because they do so naturally. Adults learn to live falsehoods. Children are honest, straightforward, and usually truthful -- sometimes brutally so!

Jesus was childlike in his totally honest way of life. What you saw was who Jesus was. There was no pretension or falsehood. >> More


Helping others ... from CSS Plus | Second | Revelation 7:9-17 |
They will hunger no more, and thirst no more; the sun will not strike them, nor any scorching heat; for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (vv. 16-17)

Good morning, >> More

My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow me. (v. 27)

Good morning, boys and girls. Christ is risen! (have the children repeat "Christ is risen indeed!" three times) I have heard that some people are using this as part of their morning devotions. What a wonderful way to start the day.
