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 20: Prepare the Way

Context: Jesus grew up and began to prepare for His ministry. When Jesus was baptized, God confirmed His sonship. Jesus was subsequently tempted by Satan, but He did not sin.

Big Picture Question: Why did Jesus become human? Jesus became human to obey His Father’s plan and rescue sinners.

Key Passage: John 3:30

The Lifeway Kids App: Volume 7, Unit 20 #3

John Pointed to Jesus

Matthew 3; John 1; John 3 | Story Point: John the Baptist told people to follow Jesus.

Christ Connection: John the Baptist told people to get ready for Jesus, the promised Messiah. Now that Jesus was on earth, John’s mission was complete. Jesus was greater than John, and John joyfully stepped aside as Jesus began His earthly ministry.
