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 December.


Arrival of Jesus

All through the Old Testament, God promised He would send a Messiah. The Messiah would rescue the people and save them from their sins. This month, kids will journey from the Old Testament prophecies to angel visits in temples and homes, to the Promised One being born in a stable in Bethlehem. Kids will discover that Jesus is the promised Messiah who brings us hope and joy.

A Promised Ruler from Bethlehem: In the Old Testament, Micah was a prophet who warned God’s people. God gave Micah a promise that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem and would be the king forever. We need a forever king to forgive us of our sins and rule over our lives.

Elizabeth and Zechariah: God did not speak through the prophets for four hundred years. Then one day, He sent an angel to speak to Zechariah, a priest serving in the temple. God promised to send a son, John, who would point people towards the coming Messiah. Out of the darkness Israel faced, God gave His people hope. 

Angel and Mary: Again, God sent an angel. Gabriel told Mary that she would become pregnant with a child who would be God’s Son. This baby would be the Promised One who would save the people from their sins. He would be human so that He could die for our sins, but He was also fully God. 

Jesus is Born: After hundreds of years of promises and prophecies, God’s faithfulness is confirmed in a manger in a stable in Bethlehem. He first reveals the news of the birth of the Messiah to shepherds who come to worship Him. The angels said the birth was good news of great joy. Jesus brings us great joy! 

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.
