Discovery

We seek to provoke discovery, inviting kids to live out their new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus and others

Shape Identity

Through planting these truths into the heart of every child: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated

Consistent Leaders

Your child will be connected with two consistent small group leaders for the year that truly care about your child and want to help you win as a parent

Sundays at 11 a.m.

We use a curriculum designed for elementary students called 252 Kids. By the time your child goes to middle school we want them to discover more about who God is, learn more about the big story He’s telling and how He empowers them to join Him in this mission/adventure. The story of God reveals the character of God. That’s why 252 Kids uses Bible stories to teach core virtues. We believe a virtue is either a piece of the character of God or a way we can respond to God. We will focus on one virtue each month, such as respect, love, obedience. And to make it easy to understand, each principle is supported by a weekly bottom line – a short phrase so easy to remember that it can be reinforced at home throughout the week.

What We Are Teaching - Uniqueness

Uniqueness

Uniqueness is a reflection of the character of God. No one is like our God. And God created people in His image. Every single person on earth is unique. We have DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made. As we help kids discover more about the way God uniquely created them, we’ll look at some people in the Bible and find out how God used their uniqueness to help Him change the world.

King-Sized Hand-Me-Downs (David and Saul’s Armor)

God made you to be you.

We kick off the month in 1 Samuel 17 and rediscover the familiar story of David and Goliath. David was the newly anointed king of Israel. He saw that Goliath was bullying God’s people, and he knew that God would help him defeat the giant. Instead of wearing the typical armor, he decided to use what God gave him through his experience as a shepherd. With a rock and a sling, he knocked Goliath to the ground and defeated the Philistines. Bottom Line: God made you to be you. God uniquely made each and every one of us. On top of that, God’s given us unique experiences that we can use to help others. We pray that kids will understand how their unique story can impact the world for God.

Relocated (Abraham)

God made you for an adventure.

In Genesis 12, we find a man named Abram, who eventually we come to know as Abraham, the father of God’s people. But long before that, God called Abraham to go on a journey with many unknowns because of a really BIG promise. Abraham was willing to follow God and go wherever He led. In the end, God made good on each of the promises He made to Abraham. Bottom Line: God made you for an adventure. God may not call us on a journey to another country, but at some point, God will call us to do something out of our comfort zone. We pray that kids will learn to trust that God will keep His promises to us, and that no matter what happens, He made them unique for whatever adventure comes their way.

Roadside Assistance (Philip and the Ethiopian Official)

God made you to follow Jesus.

In Acts 8:26-40; we learn more about an encounter between Philip and an official from Ethiopia. As the Ethiopian searched God’s word and had questions about faith, Philip pointed him in the right direction, and showed him that Jesus was the answer to those prophesies from long ago. Bottom Line: God made you to follow Jesus. God wants to have a relationship with us and made a way for that to happen through Jesus. This week, we pray that kids will realize that no matter who they are or what they’ve done that God made them to have a relationship with Him when they believe in Jesus.

Purified in Philippi (Lydia)

God made you to love others.

Next, we head to Acts 16:11-15 and meet a woman named Lydia. Paul and Silas were traveling around and telling people about Jesus. In the city of Philippi, they headed down to the city riverbank where they thought they’d find people worshipping God. While they were there they met Lydia, a wealthy business owner. Lydia used her gift of hospitality to make Paul and Silas feel welcomed. She used her gifts to help others feel loved. Bottom Line: God made you to love others. God has given each of us gifts that we can use to show love to others. We pray that kids will realize that part of what it means to be created in God’s image includes reflecting His love to the people in the world around them.

Spiritual Gifts for the Soul (Gifts of the Spirit)

God made you to do good.

Next, we head to 1 Corinthians 12 and learn more about the Gifts of the Spirit. We each have role to play in this world. God gives each one of us a unique gift through the Holy Spirit to help make a difference in the lives of the people around us. Bottom Line: God made you to do good. God doesn’t give us these special gifts just for us. He gives them to us, so we can help Him change the world and tell others about Him. We pray that through this passage, kids will start to search for and discover how God has uniquely gifted them to help Him do good in the world.
