Friend Request: 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum

Introducing “Friend Request: 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum”

We are excited to announce the launch of our newest offering, “Friend Request: 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum,” designed to help children build healthy, Christ-centered friendships in today’s digital age. As the editor of this curriculum, I am thrilled to share why this program is an essential addition to your church’s ministry resources.

Addressing the Unique Challenges of Digital Friendships

In a world where digital interactions are increasingly common, children face unique challenges in forming and maintaining friendships. Social media, online gaming, and virtual communication platforms provide new avenues for connection but also pose risks that can undermine a child’s faith and values. “Friend Request” addresses these challenges head-on, providing a biblically grounded framework that helps children navigate their online and offline friendships with wisdom and grace.

Biblically Grounded and Engaging

Each week of the curriculum focuses on friendship, drawing on engaging Bible stories and relatable main ideas to teach children how to choose good friends and be good friends. For example:

  • Week 1: Friend Filter emphasizes the importance of choosing friends who support our growth and well-being, much like selecting the best team in a game.
  • Week 2: Be Your Own Bestie reminds children that God made them special and loves them just the way they are, akin to customizing a character in a video game.
  • Week 3: Jesus is Your Super Friend teaches that Jesus is the ultimate friend who is always there for us, no matter what.
  • Week 4: Kindness Quest highlights how small acts of kindness can make a big difference in our friends’ lives.

These lessons make the teachings relevant to children’s everyday experiences but also help instill lifelong values.

Equipping Children for Safe and Wise Online Interactions

One of the standout features of “Friend Request” is its emphasis on digital safety and wisdom. The curriculum incorporates practical lessons on handling online interactions, teaching children to discern who they engage with and how they present themselves in the digital world. This is crucial in helping them build positive relationships that reflect Christian values.

Building a Faith-Filled Community

By choosing “Friend Request,” churches can empower children to form supportive and faith-filled friendships. The curriculum’s focus on kindness, forgiveness, and love aligns with the teachings of Jesus and helps children create a loving and supportive community both within the church and beyond. As they learn to apply these principles, they will be better equipped to impact the world for Jesus positively.

Why would your church choose this curriculum?

“Friend Request: 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum” is more than just a program; it’s a tool that helps children navigate the complexities of modern friendships with faith and wisdom. By integrating biblical teachings with practical lessons on digital interactions, this curriculum provides a comprehensive approach to friendship that is both relevant and timeless. We invite churches to adopt this curriculum and support their children in building Christ-centered relationships that will last a lifetime.

We are excited about the impact “Friend Request” will have on your ministry and look forward to hearing your stories of transformation and growth. Together, let’s help our children develop friendships that reflect the love and values of Jesus in every aspect of their lives.
