42 Week Curriculum the Attributes of God for Children

One of the most important tasks of anyone in charge of children’s ministry is that of deciding what truth to teach the children under your care. In my years as a children’s ministry director it was one task that I took very seriously. There were so many things I wanted the children in our church to know, but as I listed them out, they all boiled down to the gospel: who is God?, who is man? and what did Jesus do? With these three simple questions and spiritual guidelines in mind I started forming our children’s materials.

About our Kids Ministry Curriculum

Our children’s ministry curriculum is a guide, but God empowers teachers to make the real difference. Our teaching materials are “broadly graded” that can be adapted to any grade level students. In most children’s ministry, the students are combined into one large group teaching session. All our lesson plans are flexible and allow the teacher to decide how “in-depth” to take the conversation. For example, young Kindergarten and First Grade students will need the teacher to read all the Bible passages. Second and third grade will have stronger reading skills and can benefit from simple worksheets. Older elementary students, grades four and five, will likely be ages 10-12. These preteens will enjoy deeper discussion and life applications. Each of these studies are flexible enough for any ministry.

For more ideas be sure to check out the children’s ministry curriculum available for free during the COVID-19 shutdown of kids church. We hear from parents often about how these studies have blessed their families.
