The Children’s Ministry at The Bible Church of Little Rock has the primary goal of seeing that children discover who God is through the Word of God so that they will be convicted of their lost condition and turn to Christ for salvation. The Bible provides two clear emphases for this goal to be achieved. These emphases are the priority of godly parenting (which is supported by the local church), and the responsibility of children to respond rightly to this godly parenting. Below is a summary of the curriculum we will be using beginning in December.
Our kindergarten students us the ABCs of God curriculum by Children Desiring God. Right thinking about God is essential for the life of faith. Using the alphabet as a framework for teaching the attributes of God, this study explores the delight that God has in Himself as the source, means, and purpose of all things.
Our grade school children use Generations of Grace curriculum by Grace Community Church. Generations of Grace is a biblically based and God-centered curriculum designed for children three years old through the sixth grade. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation.
Every week, children in each age range learn from the same passage of Scripture in a way that is appropriate for their respective age levels. We call this a “unified curriculum.” A unified curriculum enables families to discuss one passage together each week, reinforcing the lesson that children have learned in equipping hour.
Generations of Grace is unique in its design to encourage a high degree of interaction between student and teacher. For students in the elementary grades, the Bible lessons are written in a question-and-answer format. This ensures that students participate in and understand each lesson.
