We’re excited to start the Sunday School year off with a new curriculum! GO!
Yes, that’s right. The name of the curriculum is GO!
THE CHRONOLOGICAL CURRICULUM THAT GETS KIDS OUT OF THEIR SEATS AND INTO THE STORYTELLING ACTION THROUGH THE BIBLE EVERY YEAR
GO! takes kids through the entire Bible once a year, but it uses different stories each time around. Kids continually get the big picture of scripture, but without unnecessary repetition. And unlike other chronological curriculum, the GO! scope and sequence lines up with the Christian calendar.
Simply put, each GO! lesson is designed to be an interactive experience that transforms kids' minds, hands and hearts.
GO! takes kids chronologically through the Bible so they can know how each story fits together to tell the Big Bible Story of God's love and redemption. More than that, GO! places God at the center of each story.
Our faith in God should be a living and active faith, one that affects how we interact with the world around us. For this reason, GO! lessons are designed to help kids apply their faith in everyday situations.
God wants more than just our minds and hands, He wants our hearts, too! Every GO! lesson gives kids an opportunity to respond to God through prayer, Bible reading, drawing, or writing.
GO! IS A CHILDREN'S MINISTRY CURRICULUM DESIGNED FOR PRESCHOOL AND ELEMENTARY KIDS. MORE THAN THAT, GO! IS...
- CHRONOLOGICAL GO! takes kids through the Bible chronologically every year and helps kids see how they too can be a part of God's story.
- GOSPEL CENTERED GO! regularly presents the Good News of Jesus and gives kids an opportunity to respond by becoming faith-filled followers of Christ.
- GOD FOCUSED GO! shows kids how God is at the center of every story in Scripture and helps them understand the character and nature of God. GO! teaches Biblical truth with real world application. But more than that, it gives direction and space to develop a personal relationship with Jesus.
- FILLED WITH FUN GO! is tons of fun! We don't want parents to drag their kids to church. We want kids to break our doors down. Metaphorically of course.

Welcome to Tippy’s Mouse House! Just as mice are prone to do, Tippy has tiptoed into the preschool room and scurried off with the Bible story pictures. Together, the preschoolers get to peek into Tippy’s Mouse House and search for the pictures amongst all the other doodads Tippy has collected. It’s a super sweet search that culminates in the discovery of God’s provision and perfect love.

What kid doesn’t love hamming it up in front of a camera from time to time? During the “Snapshot” series, kids will be encouraged to do just that. By striking different fun and creative poses throughout the lessons, kids will help tell the stories of the Israelite's journey through the wilderness and into the Promised Land. More than that, kids will get an unforgettable snapshot of God’s enduring love and faithfulness through the deserts of life.
