Gospel-Centered, Bible-Based Children’s Ministry Curriculum

The Gospel Story for Kids

The Gospel Story for Kids is written by Marty Machowski and published by New Growth Press.

Because children need help understanding that the Bible is one story with Jesus as the hero, the Gospel Story Curriculum Old and New Testaments focuses on Christ and his gospel as it teaches preschool through sixth-grade children 156 key stories from Genesis to Revelation that highlight God’s plan of redemption. This unique three-year curriculum grows with children by exploring the same Bible stories at three different learning levels, presenting the material in a fresh way each time to help children grow in their understanding of the Bible.

I used this curriculum as a pastor and I give it my highest endorsement. In addition, there are companion books called The Long Story Short and The Old Story New that are excellent tools for family devotionals. We have used these resources with our family and essentially they are a Bible reading plan with discussion questions.

Rooted Kids

I wrote Rooted Kids Curriculum while I was a pastor at Grace Church of Eden Prairie.

Rooted Kids curriculum is a gospel-centered curriculum based on core truths of the Bible for kindergarten through sixth grade. The core-truths curriculum presents the world’s big lie and the Bible’s big truth for each lesson. Excellent for Wednesday evening programming as it is broken up into small teaching units that last from four to fifteen weeks. Numerous curriculum series have matching music by Rooted Kids Worship, which integrates music, message, and memorization to teach the core truths of God’s word.

Treasuring Christ

Treasuring Christ was developed by Steve Wright and members of his ministry team at Providence Baptist Church.

Treasuring Christ is a comprehensive curriculum delivered online for preschool through high school that strengthens children and families by teaching them the gospel from Genesis to Revelation. The gospel-centered curriculum allows every child, birth through high school, to study the same Scripture passage each week and equip parents to thrive in their God-given roles as their child’s primary disciple, thereby, connecting the church and the home. We provide a weekly take home resource that encourages parents to help their children prepare for the upcoming week’s lesson.

The Gospel Project for Kids

The Gospel Project is published by Lifeway.

The Gospel Project for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.

The curriculum is based around big truths that children will learn, is three years long, and can coordinate with a similar curriculum for students and adults so that the entire church is learning the same thing. Comes with excellent videos that I use the overview video in the link above to train staff, teachers, and parents. Excellent curriculum.
