How to Make Good Friends

One of the more important skills we can impart to children is the wise ability to choose good friends. Few things will have greater influence on the rest of their life.

How to Make Good Choices

It is essential that we equip children while they are young with decision-making skills that will enable them to weigh and evaluate alternatives. This unit will help your children understand the power they have to choose between right and wrong.

  • June 11 - Winning the Inner Battle

How to Grow Spiritual Fruit

The Fruit of the Spirit may be a familiar topic to children, but the concept of how to grow spiritual fruit is one that is often misunderstood by adults, not just by kids. Unlike many curriculums on the fruits of the Spirit for children, this unit is not an overview of the nine fruits. Rather, it is a 4-week series that will walk children through the process of how to nurture the soil of their soul so that the Spirit of God might produce genuine spiritual fruit in them. Starting with the seed of salvation and being watered with the Living Water, children will discover that their spiritual life is like a plant and God is like a loving gardener. They will learn that it is only by being pruned through loving discipline and abiding in Jesus that spiritual fruit will blossom in their lives. This unit will guide them, not into working harder to be good, but to draw closer to God so that he can make them more like Jesus.

July Lessons:

  • July 2 - The Seed of Salvation
  • July 9 - Growing Up Godly
  • July 16 - Abiding in Jesus
  • July 23 - The Fruit God Produces

AUGUST and SEPTEMBER - Big Screen Adventures Series
Mission Moses 9-Week Series

SUPER SUNDAY - October 1st
Bible Ninja Warriors (A Stand-Alone Lesson)

Works great as a fun intro to the Ninja-themed Easter series, Undefeated! But regardless of what series you're teaching, you can still use BIBLE NINJA WARRIORS! Just change up the verses and you're good to go!  

OCTOBER - Halloween Series
Spooky Lessons of the Bible

Spooky Lessons of the Bible is a 4-lesson series by Karl Bastian that will guide your children to a biblical understanding of life, showing how Jesus defeated death. While our culture obsesses with spookiness, this series will redeem the season in a way you've never seen before, all while allowing your children to enjoy the season in a wholesome and fun manner. Equip your kids with the knowledge to face their fears. Halloween provides our culture with a way of making light of death, and yet that nagging question remains: "What will happen to me after I die?" Provide kids the answer that Jesus conquered Death. We can teach them that we know a Savior who faced death, destroyed it, and can raise us up too!
