Acts 2:39 “For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”
The curriculum we are using is called: Gospel Story and Long Story Short by Marty Machowski and is built for age groups: preschool (18m – 3 years), lower elementary (4 years – 2nd grade) , upper elementary (3rd grade – 6th grade)
Sunday mornings we engage in the following activites:
- 15 minutes of Children’s worship (currently preparing for Christmas program)
- 15 minutes craft activity
- 15 minutes Gospel story time
- 15 minutes gym time activity
Children are sent home with a coloring sheet and memory verse that corresponds with the Gospel story to do with their parents/guardians to re-engage the lesson and review the memory verse. The curriculum is set to run through every 3 years as it runs through the old and new testaments of the bible.
“Because children need help understanding that the Bible is one story with Jesus as the hero, the Gospel Story Curriculum: Finding Jesus in the Old Testament focuses on Christ as it teaches preschool through sixth-grade children 78 key stories from Genesis to Malachi that highlight God’s plan of redemption. This unique year and a half long curriculum grows with children by exploring the same Bible stories at three different learning levels, presenting the material in a fresh way each time to help children grow in their understanding of the Bible” © 2013 http://gospelstoryforkids.com/about/program-content/
