That is what the newly revised God Always Wins curriculum for VBS and Backyard Bible Club is all about—showing the greatness of God so that children may come to worship Him.

Good Friday remembrance will be soon upon us. Parents, this provides you with an excellent opportunity to really dig in to the meaning of Jesus’ death on the cross. Here are a few questions you could ask as discussion starters:

Resurrection Day – Easter – is soon approaching. Along with Christmas, it’s probably one of the most beloved holidays for children. But why do children love Easter so much? Is it merely the delightful, celebratory elements that grip their attention or something much more profound and meaningful?
There is a difference between reading with children and reading to children. Reading to children is when an adult reads and children listen; but reading with children is experiencing the story, the words, and the ideas together. It is an interactive exchange that takes place as the adult and the children discover meaning, wonder at the marvelous, mourn over the heartaches, ponder the incomprehensible, and rejoice in the beautiful together.
