Grow, Proclaim, Serve! children's church enriches children from preschool to 6th Grade (ages 3 - 12) to grow in faith so that they mature spiritually, proclaim the good news of God's love, and begin serving in His church and your community. Children grow in "leaps and bounds" (2 Thessalonians 1:3) through large group / small group Bible stories, crafts & activities, worship & praise, and weekly video dramas from the slightly zany town of Leaper's Point. The curriculum uses the CEB translation.
Grow, Proclaim, Serve! offers two Large Group / Small Group kits - one for ages 3-6 and another for ages 7 & above. Each kit includes the large group/small group leader's guide, CD-ROM, and DVD for 13 quarterly sessions. The large group/small group curriculum follows the same Bible stories as the children's Sunday School which makes it a great combination for Sunday 2nd hour, midweek services, and children's church. Each session is divided into three parts:
