Early Childhood

Birth - Kindergarten


Basic Truth: God loves me.
Key Question: What does God want you to do?
Bottom Line: God wants me to do the right thing!
Memory Verse: “Learn to do what is right" - Isaiah 1:17 (NIrV)
Bible Story: Joseph forgives his brothers (Genesis 42:1-6; 45:1-46:7)
Joseph continues to do the right thing and forgives his brothers when they come to him asking for food.  Not only does he forgive them, but he feeds them as well.

Grades 1 - 6


Virtue: Service - Lending a hand to help someone else. 
Memory Verse: “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not man." - Ephesians 6:7 (NIV)
Bible Story: Roadwork (Matthew 5:41)
Bottom Line: What in the world are you doing that's more than you have to do?
After we spend some time last week talking about the extra mile principle, this week we unpacked the story of the good Samaritan and added a different tagline. We asked: “what in the world are you doing to help someone others won’t help?” We want kids to become intentional about looking around them at a world that’s hurting and to take action. We are encouraging kids to show compassion to the world around them even in the inconvenient ways and especially in the unpopular ways.
