God Encounters

“When children realise that they are a part of this story, that God’s story is also their story, that God’s story connects with their own expanding self-narratives, they become responsible for ensuring that the episodes in which they make appearances are faithful to the overall scrips.” (David Csinos and Ivy Beckwith , Children’s Ministry in the way of Jesus, 2013)



 

Provide an environment and experiences that allow children to encounter Jesus intimately, personally and regularly through prayer and reflection.

Use learning activities that are experiential, multisensory, engaging and varied in learning styled.

Tell awesome Bible stories and stories of faith that will reach the heart and mind.

Provide opportunities for children to experience and imagine how their personal story is intertwined with the big picture of the Bible.

Help children enter into the wonder and mystery of the Bible through discussion and questioning and to respond using their individual gifts such as art, music, construction or drama.

GraceLink

GraceLink was developed by the General Conference as our Church’s children’s Sabbath School curriculum.  It is a biblically based 12 year curriculum comprising of 624 lessons. Most lessons are story based, some on scriptural references that teach a specific doctrine. Each story has been selected to develop one of the four dynamics of the GraceLink series: grace, worship, community, and service. For more about GraceLink and more GraceLink resources click here.

We Can Trust the Bible 

Written by Tim Hale, We Can Trust the Bible tells exactly why we can trust the bible. Tracing the story of how Moses received a table of stone on which God had written the Ten Commandments, the prophets that had dreams and visions, and the Holy Spirit that taught and inspired the disciples.

It also shows how God preserved His Word through the darkness and persecution of the Middle Ages, and the struggle to give the Bible to the people in languages they could understand. Finally, we see how the Puritans brought the Bible to America and how archaeology proves the ancient records.
