To be thoroughly equipped for every good work is the heart of this curriculum. "Equipping" takes both our teams and children through the key stories of the entire Bible. Some themes covered in the series are: our identity in Jesus, God's good nature, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, hearing God's voice, encountering God, faith, forgiveness, trusting God, and more. There are also activations throughout, so the children not only read and hear the Bible, but also are activated to do what it says! We recommend starting with Equipping 2. After you've finished Equipping 2, Equipping 3 is available here. Equipping 1: A Five-Fold Guide for Raising Children in the Fullness of Christ is a standalone curriculum and can be done at any time independently. We've created a unique structure where your team is encouraged to become part of the lesson creating process. We understand what feeds teachers will feed the children, so we've worked to create this curriculum in such a way that your teachers will no longer study to teach, but study for themselves. We've made it adaptable, so you can take the 13 complete lessons and use them as is, completely write your own, or a do combination of the two. Either way, as you read through the Bible you can have what God is speaking to you flow through into what you teach the children. May you raise a group of children who know both the Bible as well the Author!Each Installment of this Curriculum Includes:
