The God and Me curriculum is designed to help children become best friends with Jesus and tell their story of “God and Me” together.

Curriculum Goals:

  • To provide an opportunity for young people and families to explore their faith together
  • To help children realize that God is active in every part of their lives
  • To help children know that Jesus is their best friend
  • To memorize the Lord’s Prayer

Children will tell their story of “God and Me” by starting with the creation story. Children will learn that God is their Creator and that God calls them by name, and they will give praise to God. Their story will continue as they learn of God’s love through Jesus. As they tell parallel stories of their own birth and the birth of Jesus, they will proclaim that Jesus was born to be their Savior. Their story will grow as children learn that God wants them to pray. Children will be encouraged to talk and listen to God as they share from their heart. Their story of “God and Me” will wrap up with the parable of the lost sheep. As children learn to lean on God as their Good Shepherd, they will be challenged to reach out and be “good shepherds” to those around them.

GAMEBoxes

Children will make a game in each lesson and keep their games in a GAMEBox (God And MExploring BOX). These games will reinforce the Bible lessons and provide opportunities for families to explore God's love together.
