WHAT MAKES OUR KIDS' CURRICULUM UNIQUE?
Our lessons require little to no prep time. As much as you want volunteers to be well prepared for a lesson, many wait until the last minute to look at a lesson. Our lessons take only a few minutes for volunteers to be ready to teach. Supplies and setup time are kept to a minimum too. That way, it only takes a little bit of time to get everything in order for volunteers to teach. Simple for you. Easy for volunteers.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO PARTNER WITH FAMILIES
We know that partnering with parents is essential to pointing kids to Jesus. After all, they have the greatest influence in the lives of young people. Our curriculum includes many tools to help you do this. Each lesson includes a text, social media post, and an email to send out to parents highlighting what kids were taught. The text and email include a “Family Challenge” that helps parents & kids put into action what they were taught at church collectively as a family.
GAMES, ACTIVITIES AND INTERACTION
Kids learn by doing. That's why each lesson includes fun games and hands-on activities related to the lesson. Kids will have fun and engage in the learning experience.
SMALL GROUPS FOR OLDER AND YOUNGER KIDS
We've designed the games and teaching time to include all elementary ages. Then, to break out in small groups of younger kids and older kids. Each lesson includes different age-appropriate small groups to accommodate both age groups.
Our curriculum is focused on life-application. We focus on how the Bible and following Jesus applies to the lives of kids today. We help kids get excited about what God did thousands of years ago, AND what he's doing right now in their lives.
All our lessons come in PDF format and as a Word Doc. That way, you can use it as-is or customize as you see fit.

WHAT AGES IS OUR KIDS' CURRICULUM FOR?
Our curriculum is designed for elementary ages. For many churches that means K-5th grade, and for others that means 1st-5th grade or 1st-6th grade. Our curriculum is designed to work with all those age groups.
The lessons are structured to do the opening game and teaching time together with all elementary ages, then to break up into small groups of younger and older kids.
