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 July.

Putting First Things First

When we disciple others, we point them towards Jesus. We invite them to encounter a God who knows them intimately, loves them unconditionally, and desires to be in a forever relationship with them. Our ability to show others the way flows from our own experiences of getting to know who God is, receiving His love and grace, and investing in our relationship with Him. When we put first things first, prioritizing our relationship with God above all else, we have the opportunity to witness God’s incredible and transformative work in our lives. We then are able to love and serve others out of the overflow of all that we have received from our generous God.

There are many ways to intentionally cultivate a relationship with God. At the core, it simply comes down to spending time with Him. This month, we’ll discuss various ways to interact with God, to learn more about His character, to receive His love and grace, to open ourselves up to being formed more fully into His image, and to follow Him. As you intentionally make space to encounter God, allow your experiences with Him to inform the way that you lead and care for the kids you’ve been entrusted with.

The gospel is the good news. God wants everyone to know this good news and to not miss out on this invitation!

Here’s the gospel in four main words: God, Us, Jesus, Trust.


God is a loving God who is all-powerful and holy. He knows and sees everything, and rules over everything. God created all people in His image, and we are valuable to Him.


But we have sinned, and our sin separates us from God. What is sin? Sin is anything we think, say, or do that disobeys God. The penalty for sin is death and separation from God forever.


But because God loves us so much, He sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for our sin. Jesus died in our place. But He did not stay dead—He rose again three days later. Because of Jesus, we no longer have to be separated from God and we are offered the free gift of eternal life!


God gives salvation, rescuing us from our sin, to everyone who places their trust in Jesus as their Savior. What is trust? It means that we rely on what Jesus did. You cannot be saved from sin by doing good things, but only through what Jesus did for you.

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.
