Coming September!

The Jesus and Me curriculum introduces Jesus as the Son of God in familiar terms so that young children can see Jesus in their own day-to-day experiences as a storyteller, teacher, friend, and healer.

Curriculum Goals:

  • To provide an opportunity for children and their families to explore their faith together
  • To introduce children to some of the stories of Jesus in the Gospels
  • To teach children how to find the four Gospels in the Bible
  • To help children relate four characteristics of Jesus to their own lives
  • To identify Jesus as the Son of God

Jesus and Me is very interactive and experiential, using music, art, movement, as well as individual and group activities. Recognizing that parents and guardians are responsible for the faith development of their children, the Jesus and Me program requires their participation and encourages parent-child interaction.

Stories are an important part of learning and this program utilizes the “Jesus Scroll Craft,” a hands-on component that builds from lesson to lesson and helps children tell their story of Jesus and me together.
