Lesson Learned:  God wants us to shine bright for Him.
Materials Needed: apple, star shape cookie cutter
Bible Verse:
Philippians 2:14-16
14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
Talking Points:  God wants us to shine bright, like a star.  Stars can be seen by everyone in the night.  God wants everyone to see us, too, doing things for Him.
Questions:  Have you seen the stars at night before?  What color are they? Are they bright?  Did you know God made the stars?
Cut an apple into thin slices. Using a cookie cutter, let the child cut out star shapes in the apple slices.

Song to Sing: 
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Prayer:  God, we want to shine bright for you everyday so that everyone knows we are Your children.  Please give us the strength to everything without grumbling or arguing. Amen!
