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

Merry Christmas! It’s time to celebrate the birth of our Savior! We are using the alphabet this month as a fun way to introduce the true story about how God gave us Jesus. One day—sooner than we think—our now preschoolers are going to grow up and start asking some hard questions. How do I know God really loves me? Does God still love me?

We want the answer to be right there and ready for them—I know God loves me because God gave us Jesus. Whenever doubt comes into our heart, whenever our mind begins to ask questions and seek proof, we need only remember back to that first Christmas when God sent His Son to us.

Merry Christmas! May you be filled with joy this Christmas season as you remember that God loves the world so much, He gave us His Son, Jesus.

Monthly Overview

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN INITIATIVE AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
For many of us, Christmas lights are the best and brightest part of Christmas celebrations. It doesn’t matter if it’s the high-rises in the big city or houses lining Main Street; when the lights come out, it’s a wonderland! People celebrate big at Christmas because there’s Someone big to celebrate: Jesus!

The best gift God ever gave was Jesus. Because of Jesus, it’s possible for us to have a relationship with God that will last forever. As we remember the Christmas story, we take time to celebrate the greatest gift the world has ever known.

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.
