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.

Monthly Overview

All Aboard! Jesus loves everyone, and He wants everyone to come aboard and be His friend forever. When we look at the kind of friend Jesus was while He was on earth, we can see that Jesus truly does love everyone. Throughout the Bible, we find accounts of the times that Jesus loved those considered unworthy and wanted to be their friend—no matter what.
At some point, even our precious preschoolers will all find themselves in the shoes of these “unworthy” people. Like
Zacchaeus, they will have friends mad at them for a wrong choice. Or, they may not feel like they fit in because of where they’re from much like the woman at the well. But, Jesus loves them anyway—no matter what. That is what we want them to know. That will help them choose grace and to love everyone the way Jesus loves them.
So let’s get ready for an amazing ride together. All Aboard!

Monthly Overview

GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE LOVE AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
All throughout the Bible, the writers of Scripture remind us that God is love. From the creation of the world to God’s relentless pursuit of us, God has shown time and again that love is most important. Even though we’ve all sinned, God loved us enough to make a way for us to have a forever relationship with Him. The Gospels are full of moments where Jesus prioritized love above all else, especially when He summed up the greatest commandment with: Love God and love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus made this real when He showed us how much God loves us by sacrificing His life for our sins.
