4 years & Kindergarten:
I Stand in Awe
God, who is the most valuable Being in all the universe, reveals Himself with clarity and authority through His Word. This means that the Bible is precious and should be valued more than any other book. This study seeks to acquaint young children with the characteristics of the Bible and its message of redemption. The goal is for children to develop a deep affection for the Bible and learn to treasure its Author.
He Has Been Clearly Seen
Creation proclaims a message about God. From the smallest snowflake to the largest star, all creation gives powerful testimony to the greatness and worth of the one, true, eternal Creator. With special attention given to the Genesis account, the goal of this study is that children view creation as a wonderful gift from a good and loving Creator who wants them to see, understand, and delight in His glory.
Generations of Grace
Generations of Grace is a biblically based and God-centered Sunday school curriculum designed for children to experience the Bible. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation.
The Young Peacemaker
The Young Peacemaker is a powerful system published by Peacemaker Ministries that parents and teachers can use to teach children how to prevent and resolve conflict in a constructive and Biblically faithful manner. The system emphasizes principles of confession, forgiveness, communication, and character development, and uses realistic stories, practical applications, role plays, and stimulating activities. The lessons in The Young Peacemaker may be summarized in Twelve Key Principles for Young Peacemakers: Conflict is a slippery slope, Conflict starts in the heart, Choices have consequences, Wise-way choices are better than my-way choices, The blame game makes conflict worse, Conflict is an opportunity, The Five A's can resolve conflict, Forgiveness is a choice, It is never too late to start doing what's right, Think before you speak, Respectful communication is more likely to be heard, and A respectful appeal can prevent conflict.
Fight the Good Fight
Christians must be fighters- that is, fighters in the battle for faith! This study identifies various battlegrounds of temptation and equips children with strategies for fighting against sin. They are encouraged to fuel their faith in God by remembering that strength, help, and victory are assured in Christ.
The Way of the Wise
The Way of the Wise curriculum is not merely about behavior, but about the heart. Since "folly is bound up in the heart" (Proverbs 22:15), we cannot change our attitudes and heart affections without Jesus. Jesus is the only bridge from the way of the foolish to the way of the wise. The Way of the Wise encourages children to pursue wisdom and to shun folly. The book of Proverbs is highlighted (along with many other parts of the Bible) as a great source of instruction in wisdom. Children are encouraged to read and memorize, and then to act on what they learn.
