Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

In Woodland Kids elementary rooms, we use 252 Basics curriculum each Sunday. We believe the story of God reveals the character of God. That's why we use curriculum organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them. Every month we present a new Life App to help children discover more about God's character. And each Life App is unpacked through a weekly Bottom Line.

Here's what we're learning in the month of August.

THIS MONTH'S THEME IS:

CREATION

(GENESIS 1)

August 07

Bright Idea: God made everything through His Word.
Memory Verse: By faith we understand that the universe was created
by the word of God. Hebrews 11:3a
He Question: If God created everything by His Word, how was God created?
God is the Creator of everything, He was never created
because He has always existed. The Bible teaches us
that God always has been and always will be.

We Question: What does being made in the image of God mean?

We are made to be representatives of God, displaying who God is
through the way we live. Since we are made in His image, we are
the only creatures who are able to have an interactive relationship
with God.

The Fall

(GENESIS 2-3)

August 14

Brite Idea: God doesn't want sin to keep us separated from Him.
Memory Verse: So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to
do it, for him it is sin. James 4:17
He Question: Why did God let Adam and Eve sin?
God allowed Adam and Eve to choose to trust in Him as
Lord, or to trust in themselves. He gives everyone the
same choice. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve chose to sin.

We Question: Can anyone be perfect?

All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Sin is
anything we do, say, or think that goes against God’s commands.
No one can be perfect, but God always had a plan for us to be
forgiven and set free from sin.

Redemption

(GENESIS 3:15, JOHN 1:1-5, 14, JOHN 19:28-37, JOHN 20:1-10)

August 21

Brite Idea: Jesus is THE way for us to be with God.
Memory Verse: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and
the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6
He Question: Why did Jesus need to come to Earth?
God’s plan since the beginning was to send Jesus to save
people from their sins. Jesus had to come to earth, live
a perfect life, and die on the cross. He took the
punishment for our sin so that all of us could be forgiven.

We Question: Can people make their own way to God?

People cannot make their own way to God. All of us have sinned,
but Jesus didn’t. He was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Jesus is THE way, THE truth, and THE life. No one can get to God unless it is through Him.

Restoration

(REVELATION 21:1-7)

August 28

Brite Idea: God will make all things new again!
Memory Verse: But according to His promise we are waiting for new
heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3:13
He Question: When will God make all things new again?
We don’t know an exact time that God will make all
things new again, no one except God does. However,
we can be confident that God will keep His promise to
make all things new again, because God always keeps
His promises.

We Question: Who will be a part of the new heaven and new earth?

Anyone who has put their faith in Jesus will be a part of the new
heaven and the new earth. Those who lived before Jesus came, but
put their faith in God’s promise of a Savior, will be a part of the new
heaven and new earth, too!

5th & 6th  GRADE, SUNDAYS @ 10:30am.

We asked preteens what questions they had about their faith…

They had plenty—including some real mind-benders. Questions about God. About themselves. About where they fit in the world.

Developmentally, your preteens are on the edge physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. They’re deciding what they believe. They have faith questions that can’t be answered with simple fill-in-the-blank answers. One preteen said it this way:

“Why can’t we ask hard questions at church? Why can’t someone help me understand?”

We can't ignore their questions! The questions won't go away. But the kids might, if they are not taken seriously.
BE BOLD Sunday school curriculum gives your preteens exactly what they need—validation of their faith questions, and a place to connect as they explore those questions together. And we’ll guide you every step of the way as you become their conversation guide...and fellow explorer.
Bold Leadership
It's not about having all the answers—it's about being willing to listen to kids and explore what Scripture has to say. BE BOLD makes it easy. Simply guide your kids in discussion. We'll lead you every step of the way.
Bold Discussion
Preteens are at a pivotal point in their faith and wrestling with what they believe. That's why BE BOLD tackles faith questions head-on...even when the answers aren't clear.
Bold Action
BE BOLD turns questions into action and helps kids make a difference. When preteens experience the impact of faith in action, many uncertainties become clear.
