Children's Ministry Resources

We want your family to stay connected to Jesus during this time of social distancing. Here are some tools from Gospel Project that we use to teach the children on Sunday mornings. There are lots of opportunities and ways to teach the children about the stories we are learning. We have included resources on this website for you to interact with. 

Sunday School Tools

  • The big picture question lasts for several weeks in a row that covers a basic truth about God. During that same time, we encourage the children to memorize a key passage that is relevant to the big picture question. This will also be the same for several weeks in a row. 
  • The leader's guide give you activities, questions and ideas on how to interact with Scripture and Bible story each week. We have a Bible story with a main point each week. 
  • The printable activity page includes a coloring sheet that you can print out at home.
  • There is also a short 3-4 minute video that goes with each weeks lesson.

Unit 19: Into the World

Context: God’s plan to save people from sin came into sharper focus as Jesus was born at last. When Jesus grew up, He began His mission to bring people back to God. From the beginning, Jesus proved that He is the Son of God and that all that was written about Him by the prophets was true.

Big Picture Question: Is Jesus God or a human? As the Son of God, Jesus is both fully God and fully human.

Key Passage: John 1:1-2

The Lifeway Kids App: Volume 7, Unit 19 #4

Gospel Project Blog: Early Encounters with Jesus


Jesus was Dedicated

Luke 2 | Story Point: Simeon and Anna worshiped Jesus as the Messiah.

Christ Connection: Throughout the Old Testament, God promised the arrival of a king who would redeem people. When Jesus arrived, Simeon and Anna knew He was the promised Messiah. Today, we have faith that Jesus is God’s Son. We can trust Jesus for our salvation, and like Simeon and Anna, we should share the good news.
