Curriculum

Early Childhood 2-Year-olds
  • God sends help – Pentecost (from Acts 1-5, John 15)
Early Childhood 3-4 Years old
  • Week 1-5: Dreams Come True
    • Study the life of Joseph with your little ones–from his imprisonment in Egypt to his God-given ability to interpret dreams! 
Kindergarten
  • Week 1: Who is the Church?
    • You have a lot more brothers, sisters, and neighbors when you follow Jesus, because you’re a part of God’s big Church! The Church isn’t a building. The Church is people who follow Jesus—the Bible calls us the body of Christ. As part of God’s Church, God calls everyone our neighbors, tells us to love them as we love ourselves, and to show them how to follow Jesus. We have to love God with everything in us and love others the way we love ourselves to show everyone what God’s Church is all about!
  • Week 2-4: Hope
    • Hope in Jesus can keep you going when the going gets tough. When you have hope, you believe the future can be better and that you have a role to play in making it better. While others can support us and help us stay focused on goals that lead to a better personal future, our best hope is anchored in Jesus—He is always good and that never changes. When we choose to follow Him, He gives us a hope that is alive: He died for our sins but came back to life to give us a better eternity. Hope in Jesus is powerful and it comes with responsibility. Our hope in Jesus isn’t just for us. God’s plan is for us, as people of His Church, to spread the hope of Jesus to hurting people who need it.
  • Week 5: Did God Create Evil?
    • God is the Creator, the author of life. Everything He creates is good and is for the good of others. God calls us to care for His beautiful creation and to be co-creators with Him, using and developing the innate creativity we are born with as His image-bearers to make and create for the good of others and the world around us. As humans, we come up with a lot of great new things and creative ideas. But, sadly, because of sin, our world is infected with death. Humans can make poor judgments when they are not submitted to God’s definition of what is good, creating things that don’t bring life as God intended, but instead, bring harm. There is hope in God’s plan to bring salvation and new life to us when we choose to follow Jesus and in the creation of a new Heaven and a new Earth where there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.

5th Grade:

  • Week 1-4: Love in Motion Loop Show
    • What good is it if we say we love others, but don’t show it? Not much good at all. This message series is designed to show students what love looks like in everyday life. Love is an action. It’s not invisible.
  • Week 5: Loop Show Likes You: Pizza! The Opera!
    • We use this episode to answer questions from real students. Today’s episode will answer the question, “Is it wrong to have friends who don’t know God?” Students will explore what qualities they desire in an inner-circle friend. And what even is an inner-circle friend?
