The Gospel Project for Kids Parent Resources


 

On August 26, 2012, we began a three-year chronological study of the Bible using the Gospel Project for Kids.  This new Christ-centered curriculum looks at the whole story—the story of redemption through Jesus—from Genesis to Revelation.  Each week’s study builds upon the previous week, and we can’t wait to help boys and girls to discover the big picture of God’s story!

Though we are teaching the following stories on Sunday mornings, we want to inform and equip you as parents to raise your child to know, love, and glorify God.  By providing the passages and the parenting resources below, we are hopeful you will best be prepared to engage your child in discussion concerning the content of each lesson and to teach how the Bible story events fit into the big picture of God.

 

CrossWay Kids Parents Workshop
12:30pm Sunday, February 9 | Worship Center

Let us equip you to effectively use The Gospel Project, our children’s curriculum, in your home to reinforce Sunday’s teaching. Lunch provided for all; childcare provided (birth to 5th grade) during workshop.
