Coming Soon! July 2021
Adventure through the book of Exodus. Learn about the story of Moses. Wonder about where and how God speaks to us as God did to Moses through a burning bush. Imagine the plagues that occurred in Egypt and how Pharaoh finally allowed the Israelites to leave. Help children to be immersed in the story of the crossing of the Red Sea. Explore how much we need versus what we want in life. Finally, play with water and ponder how and why water is so important in faith and in life. Guide children through these foundational stories of our faith using The Exodus unit.
Stories included in this unit:
• Moses and the Special Holy Place (Exodus 3:1–12)
• Terrible, Awful Times (Exodus 5–11; 12:21–23, 29–36)• Walking on Dry Land (Exodus 14:5–31)
• Just Enough (Exodus 16:1–31)
• God Is Where the Water Is (Exodus 17:1–7)
The Exodus has an at-home kit guide as an accompanying download found at the bottom of this page. This guide helps you put together a kit of supplies and activities from this unit for families to do at home. Equip families for doing at home faith formation with the at-home kit guide.
Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible Curriculum invites children and their leaders to wonder, play, and connect with one another as they develop a better relationship with God. By exploring the stories in Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible, children and their leaders learn more about who God is and what their relationship is with God. This curriculum has 35 units filled with 148 stories from the story Bible that dive deep into characters and themes in the Bible. Children and their leader will read the story together from the story Bible, pause to allow the story to resonate, and then engage with the story and wrestle with their place in that story.
Growing in God’s Love: A Story Bible Curriculum is written for ages 5–10 and is intentionally multiage, meaning that children are all grouped together. Grouping children this way brings a relational focus to the sessions and fosters a collaborative spirit. The curriculum also includes an intergenerational component with four suggestions for intergenerational and home ideas for each session within a unit. Those ideas include suggestions for things to do in worship, more education-focused ideas, ways to connect with one another, and mission ideas. This adds another dimension to learning and helps the children connect to the congregation, creating a holistic approach to children’s ministry.
