Eternal Hope Children's Easter Lesson

Eternal Hope

This stand-alone message for Easter Sunday focuses on the hymn of Christ’s supremacy over all creation, found in Colossians 1.

It invites us into God’s ongoing work of new creation—here and now, and in the life to come.

Fail Forward Children's Lesson Graphic

Fail Forward

We don’t make it through life without some mess-ups—and kids know this as well as anybody. This five-week series explores how Christians can “fail forward” in life. Through understanding how God makes us holy, the need to admit it when we mess up, and why it’s important to forgive other believers, we can learn and grow from our mess-ups.

Yes, You Children's Lesson Series Graphic

Yes, You

This four-week series for children explores the lives of a few unlikely people whom God used to do amazing things. Through the stories of David, Rahab, John Mark, and Gideon, we will see that God uses the small, the outsider, those behind the scenes, and the timid to do amazing things in the world.

The Words of Jesus Children's Lesson Graphic

The Words Of Jesus

In this five-week children’s series we will look at the ways people misunderstood the things Jesus was doing. Often, people thought that Jesus was doing something wrong and pointed it out; but he always had an explanation. He wanted others to understand who he is, the things he believes are important, and the real reason he was on earth. He didn’t want them to be confused about his character and purpose.

Learning From The Prophets Children's Lesson

Learning From The Prophets

The Minor Prophets weren’t exactly known for their cheery messages. These short Old Testament books are a faithfully delivered call to repentance to Israel and to the nations. Their call to abandon worshipping idols, embrace God’s heart of mercy, rejoice in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and anticipate God’s coming judgment and kingdom still resonate in our world today. Each week in this series, we’ll examine one passage from one of the Minor Prophets that helps us understand what that prophet was talking about.

Content In Christ Contentment Children's Lesson Graphic

Content In Christ

Being content means being peaceful and happy with the way things are. Being content with what one has and being generous toward others can make someone stand out. And it’s what God calls us to as Christians. This three-week children’s series looks at Philippians 4 to learn how generosity and contentment work together and to understand that, because of Jesus, we can be content no matter what is happening in our lives.

The Coming King Children's Advent Lesson Graphic

The Coming King

Throughout the Bible, births often herald great hope and expectations and are the result of great faith in God. Many births are a foreshadowing of the greatest birth of all, the birth of Jesus Christ.

Christmas Sunday

Jesus Christ has been born! He is the fulfillment of the promises of God to his children and the world. Simeon’s prophecy about Jesus shows us how Jesus came to bring light into our darkness.
