Today’s post is short and sweet! (Well, for me anyway!)
What’s in the Bible Church Edition curriculum is straight up something to be thankful for. Catchy name–What’s in the Bible–and it sums it up pretty nicely.
Hope you like nuggets, because here’s one you’ll love. A week ago, some of the 6th graders I disciple were meeting with my hub and me when I asked them what were their highs and lows of their time in our children’s ministry. Without a doubt, each one of them said that the What’s in the Bible lessons were one of their absolutely most favorite things about church. Yeah, 6th graders. Yeah, puppet teaching. Yeah, corny songs (okay that part may make sense!) Yeah, blew my mind, too.
Their reason??? They said it was because they learned so much stuff about the Bible, what it means and how it fits together–stuff that fit together with what they were learning in public school and it helped them know for sure that the Bible is true! BOOM!
Interestingly enough, a few weeks ago son #2 and his fiance, both whom are Bible college students, were visiting and helping in class. When class was over, they remarked on how incredible it was how much our kids knew–not just the facts, but understanding what it meant to their lives. DOUBLE BOOM!
So, to the Good Lord, Phil Vischer, Buck Denver, and all those on the What’s in the Bible team: Today, Thursday, May 16, I am thankful for you, your efforts, inspiration and faithfulness to help the next generation know, love and follow Christ.
