For the little ones (newborn to JK) we like to keep things simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. The nursery provides cuddles and care for the babies, and once they are moving around and ready for more, we introduce some fun games, crafts and an interactive large group Bible story and worship time. The three key things they learn each week are:
- God made me.
- God loves me.
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
Children from SK to Grade 5 focus on a core virtue each month. In large group time, we come together to enjoy unforgettable Bible lessons, illustrated through drama and props, and intended to reinforce the virtue for the month. During this large group time, the children participate in upbeat, contemporary worship designed to engage them and create a heart of worship for God. They also spend time in age appropriate small groups, where games and activities are used to teach them how live out these virtues at school and at home. We like to make the lessons practical and relevant to them…. And fun too!
We want children to experience and own the three basic truths, modeled by Jesus, that are reinforced each week:
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
In KidsView, we use Tru curriculum to help us take children through an exploration of the big God story. From toddlers through to grade 5, we explore the whole Bible and how it connects to them. Yes! We are all part of God’s big story!
Tru is a spiritually forming curriculum that equips children, leaders and families to know Jesus and live out a vibrant lifetime. They will explore the Scriptures chronologically and see how the big God story connects to their own story. God is at the centre of every lesson. We will help children focus on God statements to show them that no matter what their story is or will be, God is always central. Fun and engaging, hands-on, age appropriate activities will help them explore the Bible and help them discover how each lesson is applicable to them.
