New to the Kit or looking for helpful hints on how to use it? Check out the Kids Kit Tips and Tricks - Elementary Edition where we share detailed instructions about the resources below.
Our elementary curriculum builds on the biblical foundation laid for kids in preschool. We want elementary kids to see the excellent character of our all-powerful God and why He is the hero of every story. We do that by looking at 36 godly character traits – one per month – with weekly Finish Lines that teach kids about God, His Word, and how He can help us reflect His character to the world.
Our character trait for March is CONSISTENCY! Check out the Monthly Overview for a snapshot of everything we will be learning about this month.
Use these activities to keep talking about and applying what you learned this weekend throughout the week.
The CHURCH era was all about establishing and organizing God’s people who have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus. Those who believe are then given the task to continue to make the Gospel known to others! But what is the gospel? As a family, let each person share what they think the gospel is. Let your kids ask any questions they might have about the gospel and talk about what it means to you. (Hint: Check out THIS VIDEO for a simple explanation that can help you talk about the gospel with others.)
The MISSION era talks about the gospel spreading all over the world. Someone back then told someone about Jesus, who told someone else, who told someone… x1,000… who told YOU! And it doesn’t stop there! If you choose to believe in Jesus, you become part of the mission, and God wants to use YOU to tell people, too! Parents, take some time to share with your kids who told you about the Gospel. Praise God for using that person to deeply impact your life. As a family, talk about people you know who may not have ever heard this good news. Or, maybe you know someone who has heard it but refuses to believe. Take some time to pray for those folks right now.
The FUTURE era reminds us that, while many things to come may be confusing to us right now, we can know one thing for sure: Jesus is coming back! Thank God that nothing is confusing to Him and that He is in control of everything that will happen in the future. Thank Him that He is giving you time on earth right now to hear the good news about Jesus.
Did you miss one of our Bible Timeline weekends or looking for a way to review it all? Check out the overviews for each era or print off the flashcards and make up different games to help you review as a family everything you’ve learned about the Bible Timeline this year. (Example: Scramble up the flashcards and see who can put them in order the fastest, practice the words that go with each era, see who can come up with a Bible story from the most eras, etc.)
Father, thank you for giving me the time to know you more and share the good news about Jesus. Praises, that I have no need to worry about the future because you are in control.
