Weekends are designed using the Bible Studies For Life curriculum. Bible Studies for Life provides a clear, concise plan for teaching kids about God in an age-appropriate way. At each age level, kids will be encouraged to gain a progressively deeper understanding of the 10 biblical concepts: Jesus, God, Holy Spirit, Self, Community and World, Salvation, Bible, Creation, Family and church.
The study plan helps the youngest learners apply the Bible to real life through the use of music, review games, activity pages, coloring pages, teaching pictures, hands-on activities, videos and family resources. A free app is available to continue the Bible discussion throughout the week at home.
