Changes coming to Life Kids!
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”- Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence, 1776
We are gearing up for a revolution in Life Kids. Beginning in May, we are switching to a new curriculum, called “The Gospel Project.” We feel this curriculum will take our children’s ministry to the next level and help our kids to truly understand who Jesus is and why the Gospel is so important.
Although our old curriculum had many positive attributes, we found it to be lacking when it came to relating the message to Jesus. In the Greenhouse, week after week, we found ourselves having to insert Jesus into the conversation and curriculum. At Life Community, we feel that Jesus should be central in any curriculum and should build from there.
The Gospel Project is a 3 year chronological study of the Bible. Each week, it takes us a step further along a Biblical timeline. Starting with creation, it guides our students through biblical events that lead up to and stem from the birth, life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Each week, the curriculum has a “Christ Connection” and ends the lesson by bringing the story back to Jesus. This concept is already embraced and taught in every other area of Life Community Church. A change to The Gospel Project will more accurately align Life Kids with teachings throughout the rest of the church and prepare them for assimilation into the general worship service, upon their entrance to middle school.
This change has been prayed over and thought out, so that it would be a smooth and profitable transition for everyone involved. If you would like to know more about The Gospel Project, you can visit http://www.gospelproject.com/kids/ . I would also be happy to answer any questions that you have. You can contact me at email@example.com. I am really excited about the way that God is going to use his word, through this curriculum, in Life Kids!
