The fruit of the Spirit come from knowing God personally and learning to live His way. Cactus Corral is an eight week study on the fruit of the Spirit as seen in the lives of some of the first Christians in the book of Acts. In Bible Study, kids play fun, western themed games to help them connect to the Bible in a fun and memorable way. In JUMP, the Sheriff and Georgia Peach work to keep the peace, love, and joy in Sunnyville. In addition, kids collect stickers that serve as a fun reminder of the meaning behind each fruit of the Spirit.
Each lesson in the lower and upper elementary guides is meant to teach God’s truth in ways that influence wise choices and actions. They are designed to encourage children to apply the Bible to their daily lives. Every activity and story brings you back to the Bible and constantly reinforces the truths found in the Scriptures.
Use these guides for your Sunday morning Sunday School or midweek Bible study classroom time. The lessons range from 45 to 90 minutes and can easily stretch over multiple weeks if you choose.
For each lesson there is a take-home activity page that your children can do in the classroom or with their parents at home. These are intended to help parents continue to enforce the lesson and main point throughout the week.
A leader’s devotion is included to help your leaders connect with each lesson before teaching their class.
Hang colorful posters in your classrooms or even around your church to continue to drive home the scripture and point or to encourage kids to join!

Children’s Worship is intended to be used along with the Sunday School guides to reinforce the key learning points through high-energy music, games, skits, and relevant object lessons.
Each lesson corresponds with the lessons found in each elementary guide and will cover the same topics, scriptures, and main points. Use this as a second hour for your Sunday School time or as your midweek program.
The program guide includes all you need to lead your children in an hour-long (or less if you so choose) fun and engaging worship time. Choose the worship songs you want to play and then follow the scripts to act out a fun skit that reinforces the lesson’s point. Your Resource disc includes theme songs, sound effects, video components, and slides to enhance your worship time.
